Q: My ex has visitation alternating weekends Saturday to Sunday. We currently have joint custody with primary physical custody to me. I just found out through another person that next year my ex will be moving to Florida. We live in Bronx, ny. What will happen as far as the visitation schedule. My daughter will be 8 at that time and she has never been away from me for more than two nights. I have raised her alone her whole life and he just got visitation in 2016. She is way too young to be traveling to Florida and staying the whole summer. This will severely affect her. What visitation will he get?
A: David’s Answer: If he’s the one moving, generally any visitation he gets he’d need to pay for the transportation. As for summer visitation, there’s really no basis to request any additional visitation over-and-above what he receives currently for the summer. Of course, the schedule may be amended somewhat, but that doesn’t necessarily equate to him getting most or all of summer. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
