This Article addresses the concerns over the differences in the right to counsel in family law cases depending on the venue. In New York, persons in family court proceedings have a constitutional right to counsel. Yet the same matter, if heard in the New York Supreme Court, does not afford such a right. This Article advocates the correction of this perceived oversight in the law so that all parties in these important proceedings can receive fair representation.
