Q: I’m concerned that my wife may be slowly coaching my kids to say they don’t want to be with me.
A: David’s Answer: Call her on it – document via e-mails or letters to her what your concerns are based on. Get into court & get a specific court order preventing either party from discussing the custody issues with the kids or talking negatively about the other parent to the kids. Then have any Attorney appointed to represent the kids, so if she then keeps doing it, the Attorney can interview them & report any violations to the Judge. Schedule a consult with a NYC Family Law attorney for a full assessment. – David Bliven, Bronx Family Law attorney (www.blivenlaw.net)
