Q: I’m terrified that my ex will kill me or have me killed during our current custody battle in family court. If I do end up dead while the case is open, what will happen or can happen?
A: David’s Answer: First, if he’s made threats along these lines, consider filing for an order of protection. Consider executing a will stating your intentions that the children be placed in the custody of one of your relatives. Though he would presumptively gain custody, if he’s complicit in your killing, presumably he’d be in jail. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
