Q: My wife and I are divorcing in a NY court. I want “normal” visitation with our kids and she’s “busting chops” about getting sole physical custody, saying I’m a danger to them, and harping on supervised visits only. I’m not, and she’s the only one whoever said so. I have been seeing a psychiatrist; I don’t think he’s too smart, and would be vulnerable. if I call him as witness.
A: Ultimately if she wants restricted visits she would need to prove that you’re a danger. However, if you have an admitted mental illness, then the court should order a forensic psychological evaluation to assess the “danger” issue. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
