Q: I have been granted Sole legal and physical custody of my son, the mother has not seen him for a year do to her issues with no license do to failing to pay child support, and CPS issues.
Q: I recently concluded a child relocation case in a New York Supreme Court. The judge cited the proceedings and his observations during the trial. The wife admitted beating me, the husbandand and having me arrested by making a false statement to the cops, bringing our son late for visitations, etc. She stated that she placed little faith that the custodial mom would do anything to foster a relationship with the non-custodial father. Such is her hatred. To boot, the attorney for the child stated the same thing. There was never any abuse claimed by the mother or child or anyone else, but citing all the factors in Tropea v Tropea (all purely speculative, however, e.g., the school system would be better, despite her not knowing where they would live, and neither does the judge), she granted her move with our son to the West Coast. i would like to have an as normal can be relationship with him as possible; it would be just about impossible for us to see each other. The judge even suggested that she would be unaccountable in another court's jurisdiction.
Q: My children are with the paternal grandmother since 2010 and the other since 2012. I pay support for both. Can i get them back?
Q: As the parent with JL and visitation, is it permissible for me to leave my child with an aunt or a grandparent while they are in my care for a few hours or even an over night?
Q: I won sole legal and physical custody at the end of August. He has visitation every other weekend Saturday morning to Sunday evening. He originally waa fighting for Thursday to Sunday every other weekend but it was denied and I won. Since then my daughter comes home crying after every visit saying how mean they have become. I feel like they are taking it out on her since she told her lawyer she only wanted one night every other weekend. She is currently 8 years old. She told me that the presents they got her for her birthday that they gave it away to her father's girlfriend kid. Gifts of jackets and coats he wants them back. They made her a knit doll 2 years ago and now they want it back. I really don't care if they want their stuff back but it is affecting my daughter. I don't think it is right. Can they do that? She has also told me that her father called her a selfish little brat like your mother...and that he told her if she wanted him to sign a paper so that he isn't legally her father...she is 8 years old. I feel like this isnt appropriate. Can I suspend his visitation or request supervised? What can be done? Can I deny him getting the doll back?

Q: I need to permanately remove myself from my 15 year olds life. Every year I'm fighting new charges against me because of her. I don't want any part of her life including paying child support. If I'm sued for custody I would be facing that.
Q: I lost a relocation case in a NY Supreme Court. My attorney thought it was best that I, the defendant, shouldn't take the stand. In her closing argument, the kids' mother's attorney, "jumped all over me for this". I just read about a Tennessee murder case, State v Noura Jackson; the TN Supreme Ct. overturned her conviction in part, because they ruled that the Constitutional right to remain silent, means that a defendant's decision not to testify "should be considered off limits to any conscientious prosecutor" , so that the jury doesn't view it as an implicit admission of guilt. I want to appeal the relocation based upon this and other factors.
