Q: What happens if a judge order FaceTime only contact & there's an order to stay away in family court for both sides? Family court order in Bronx county court. Most recently my son lost custody after threatening to kill himself to his ex. He admits he was trying to get her attention, it's been four months & he is desperate for their family to be back. Now the judge says FaceTime only until the next court date, next week. However today he went to her graduation with their mother. She invited him to come. I feel she is using the system to her benefit to use the order only when she wants. The previous order was for the drop off to be at the police station and she told him not to worry it's ok, come over. Now he doesn't have custody of the kids anymore. Now she tells him don't worry you can still see them. Seems like they are both violating the order, right? - concerned grandma.
Q: Since he's the only one "ordered" to do something, if they both violate the order, it's only him who would potentially face jail. Thus, if he wants to amend an order, the way to do it is to file a motion to amend. Have him call a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
