A family lawyer buffalo ny may assist parties in reaching an agreement to keep the child outside of court. If a prospective mother seeks to abort a pregnancy against a father’s wishes, an attorney may be able to draft an agreement where the father agrees to pay the costs of pregnancy and obtain full custody after birth. However, the mother does have the right to follow through with the abortion despite the wishes of the father.

Informal child support agreements between parents may also be possible. Research actually indicates that only half of custodial agreements have formal court ordered support agreements.
