Q: I was granted custody of my son and my ex didn’t appear in court due to medical reasons so it’s most likely going to be vacated (the custody order) and put back on trial. Does this mean my ex gets our son back in their custody since the order will be void along with the current visitation order?
A: That depends on many different factors, such as the length of time which has passed, whether circumstances have changed, the stance of the attorney for child, etc – and all that assumes the child was in your ex’s custody to begin with. You’d benefit by having an attorney representing you. Call a Bronx Child Custody attorney to schedule a consult.
