Q: I have had my daughter living with me since we split (never married & together for one year) my daughter is now five and lives with me and my fiancé. I recently filled for sole custody, and the court day is not for a few weeks, normally my ex is hostile towards me and will not pick up or drop off our daughter to our new residence (it’s 25minutes away). But my fiancé has been doing all the drop offs so that our daughter can see her mother. Do we continue as “normal”?
A: David’s Answer: Merely because you filed a petition doesn’t necessarily mean the status quo must change. However, if you wish to also change the pick-up/drop-off arrangement, now is the time to do so & communicate same to the non-custodial parent. Call a Bronx Child Custody attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
