Q: My ex and his mother thankfully cannot get a custody/visitation order in place from Bronx Family Court due to an order of protection that has prevented them from visitation. My final hearing for the TPO in New Jersey court is soon and it is definitely going to become a final order of protection with my children and our child in common on it. Shall I expect full custody given by NY court because of this?
A: David’s Answer: Having an order of protection – especially if there was a determination made by the Court that he committed domestic violence – is certainly a factor the Court would consider. However, there are numerous other factors which need to be assessed. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
