Q: I moved to NYC from Philly which is about 2hrs away and we agreed to meet halfway every other weekend with no court ordered. He now says that he is not obligated to do so and now wants me to drive 2hrs there and back. Is that something that I should comply with? We have never had a problem before and had been doing this for the past 2 years why change now? I have contact with my daughter daily and keep her for the summer and holiday’s.
A: David’s Answer: If there are no court orders in place, then everything is by agreement. And if informal agreements are breaking down, then I suggest to file a custody petition in Family Court & allow a Judge to set the terms of the access. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
