Child custody

Q: I'm going to court for child custody, my goal is to get joint custody , but the father does not show up on the days he's suppose to pick up baby. And when he does pick her up he drops her off at sitter and goes to bars and passes out. In the end I get a phone call at 5:00 am asking to pick up my daughter from babysitters because her father never came.

A: David's Answer: This doesn't seem like a case which warrants "joint custody." Same usually entails a non-custodial parent who is very involved with the child, has nearly equal access time and otherwise shares with the raising of the child. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Custody attorney for a full assessment. - David Bliven, Westchester Child Custody attorney (
