Helping You Resolve Native American Custody Concerns
Are you and a Native American former spouse in dispute over child custody rights?
Whether you are the member of a tribe in New York state or nonmember divorcing a Native American, I am the experienced family law lawyer who works hard to negotiate or litigate a conclusion you can live with.
Crafting Resolutions That Work For You
I am Linda M. DiPasquale. For 30 years, I have been instrumental in crafting resolutions and providing closure for couples and families in dispute. My tradition of legal knowledge, in-depth research, attentive advocacy and personal service has benefited a number of divorce and family law clients from all walks of life.
During our working relationship, I insist on keeping lines of communication open, with straight talk about the reality of child access disputes with tribes whose courts are independent. Many times, non-Natives intending to divorce Native Americans, or vice versa, or members of different tribes divorcing, face special struggles over sole or shared custody, and availability for parenting time.
- Are you upset that custody and visitation responsibilities of a noncustodial co-parent are not being taken seriously?
- Are you considering a relocation to another state with your child, or contesting a move to relocate by a co-parent, which would dramatically alter custody routines?
For these and any other variation on child custody disputes within the Native American justice system, or situations where U.S. law and tribal law can overlap, please be in touch. My track record of success as an attorney speaks for itself, and is proof that I can be of service to you.
