My daughters father wants joint custody, but i want nothing to do with him, can i just ask for visitation rights instead?

Q: He wants joint custody but iam very uncomfortable around him. I give him my daughter every weekend since last year i barely get to spend time with my daughter on the weekends. Can i ask for just visits every other weekend and share holidays. I really dont want communication much with him.

A: If there is no court order governing his visitation, then I agree every weekend seems to be excessive visitation – especially if you work on weekdays. Thus, you may consider requesting that his access time be scaled back to alternate weekends – and also keep a careful paper-trail with him. Call a Bronx Child Custody attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
