Which Court Do You Go to With a Family Dispute in New York?

Part I: Family Court

You have a choice between Family Court and Supreme Court in New York to go to with your family issues.

New York State is a little unique because there are 2 different types of courts that deal with family issues: Family court and the New York Supreme Court. Though it seems a bit of the opposite, in New York State, a “Supreme Court” court is actually a lower court and not a higher appellate court. 

The highest appellate court in New York State is called, the Court of Appeals.
