Can I apply for visitation for to see my step daughter

Q: My husband and his ex don’t get along because he married me and she won’t let him see the children. The 16 year old left and came to live with us. Can I file for visitation for the 7 yr old on my behalf as step mom.

A: David’s answer: Generally, a step-parent does not have legal standing to petition for visitation. Thus, your “visitation” with your step-child would be coupled with the times your husband sees the child. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
