Q: My ex tells the court that we make things difficult for him to receive his daughter on visitation. That is not true, so now we have to prove we are not being difficult in giving him the child. I also have a order of protection on him. So since the incident on Tuesday he and my sister had a fight. I called the cops. I put a stay away from our child because I fear of her safety..
A: David’s Answer: There are numerous factors which the Court will consider on custody, including age of child, how long the child has been living with 1 parent, stability of the homes, ability to meet the child’s needs, who has been the primary psychological parent, whether either parent has a drug, alcohol or mental health issue, and whether domestic violence has been committed. You’re best advised to schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
