Q: at what age can a child say he/she does not want to go on visitation with the non-custodial parent, In ny state

A: David’s Answer: There is no bright-line rule, but generally if a child is high-school age, the Judge pretty much goes along with whatever his/her preferences are. That said, one would need to assess many other factors, such as the nature of the agreement, existence of any alienation, age/development of the child, etc., to render a definitive opinion. Schedule a consult with a Putnum/Westchester Child Custody attorney for a full assessment. David Bliven, Westchester Child Custody attorney (www.blivenlaw.net)
