William Melendez was admitted to the New York bar in 2009. He maintains an office in New York but resides in Puerto Rico. On January 26, 2011, the Superior Court of Puerto Rico issued an ordering finding that he had failed to make child support payments for the last 36 months and was over $90,000 in arrears. This was reported to New York, and under New York Domestic Relations Law Section 244-c, he faced a suspension of his law license since his arrears in child support were over 4 months. The New York Appellate Division for the First Judicial Department has indefinitely suspended Melendez until he pays the full amount of child support.
