Javier assumed that dads never win custody in court. But when he heard that his daughter, Bella, was spending long hours without adult supervision, he was eager to try, even though he could not afford a lawyer. He came to LIFT at Bronx Family Court and found the legal information and support he needed. Working with our team, Javier learned how to build his case. He won custody of Bella and now they are building a happy family life together. 


You can support LIFT to empower families to advocate for themselves in the complex Family Courts and address the emotional ramifications of Court involvement.
