How old does a child need to be to travel alone?

Q: My sons father has visitation rights every other weekend. I was recently informed that he sends my 10 year old son to travel alone a few blocks. I dont agree with my son walking alone without supervision. neither one of us has custody of him but my son has been with me since he was born. I've never sent him to travel alone so for this to be happening I'm concerned. What can I do about this?

A: David's Answer: There's no bright-line rule, and it often depends on the circumstances. How mature is the child? Is the child traveling in a relatively safe neighborhood, or a crime-ridden cesspool? Have you kept a paper-trail by discussing your concerns with the Father? Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
