Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the pain of marital conflict, John J. Lindsay creates solutions. John has committed his 25-year legal career to protecting and preserving the rights of families and individuals.
Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but a biological parent’s change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn a joyous occasion into a nightmare. John assists families with the complex legal procedures and frustrating red tape of the adoption process so you can focus on your new family member.
Through mediation or litigation, John seeks to obtain the best possible settlement or judgment for his clients, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
If you are the noncustodial parent, divorce should not force you to miss the important milestones in your children’s lives. John ensures you are given the opportunity to spend the quality time with your children required to encourage their strong growth and development.
Both parents share in the responsibility of raising children. John upholds your children’s rights to receive the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing, while ensuring that the financial burden is divided fairly between both parents.
Sometimes the unexpected happens — a lost job or a sudden injury — yet you remain obligated to pay child support despite your changed financial circumstances. In other cases, your former spouse receives a huge financial windfall or promotion that should contribute toward your children’s upbringing. John can successfully obtain a modification of your child support order so your children’s financial support is more fairly shared between you and your former spouse.
If your former spouse fails to abide by legal obligations to pay for your child’s financial support or allow your child to spend time with you, John leads you through the legal channels to compel the enforcement of the court’s child support or visitation orders.
