Q: I live in New York and have sole legal and physical custody. The father has no visitation rights and hasn’t seen the child in years (hasn’t had visitation rights in years). Do i need the courts permission to move? Do I need to notify the court? I don’t even know where my childs father is located.
A: David’s Answer: Generally you need either the Father’s permission or court permission. Whether your case would constitute a rare exception to the general rule would need to be assessed. Schedule a consult with a White Plains Child Custody attorney. – David Bliven, Westchester Child Custody Attorney, (www.Blivenlaw.net)
