What does a women gain by having full custody of one child & why would she want it?

Q: Child support is automatically pay by the order of the court. I’m relocating from New York State to Florida. The mother is willing to sign for the child to have visitation summers & hoildays with me but for exchange I sign & give her full custody of our child. Her excuse, the child primarily live with her.

A: David’s Answer: Full custody (a/k/a “sole custody) would give her presumptive guidelines on child support, the power to apply for a passport & travel internationally with the child without your approval, and sole decision-making with respect to decisions which need to be made regarding the child. Joint custody would provide you with more right along these lines. For a full assessment, schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney.
