Court HouseExperience in all area courts hearing matrimonial matters

Each county in NY has a Supreme Court and a Family Court that is particular to it. The Supreme Court has exclusive jurisdiction over all divorce cases, while both courts have concurrent jurisdiction to hear and determine proceedings on matters such as child support, child custody and visitation, spousal maintenance (alimony), orders of protection, paternity, domestic violence, spousal and child abuse and neglect, and criminal cases involving juveniles. While Ingrid Gherman has extensive experience litigating in the New York court system, she is committed to first attempting non-confrontational methods of resolving family disputes such as amicable and voluntary settlement negotiations, mediation or collaborative divorce. However, in cases where a trial is the only path possible, having seasoned litigator Ingrid Gherman on your side in the courtroom can make the difference between being awarded the legal rights you deserve or falling short of doing so.

I the event that your court order or divorce judgment requires review through the Appellate Division, Ingrid has experience drafting and arguing appeals in Appellate Division. The First Judicial Department has jurisdiction over the lower courts’ orders in Manhattan and the Bronx. The Second Judicial Department has jurisdiction over the lower courts’ orders in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, Rockland, Orange, Westchester, Suffolk and Nassau.
