Q: I have been in a domestic violence relationship for 7 years and have a 6 year old child in common with the person. I finally decided to leave the relationship a month ago. I have told him to constantly leave me alone and he continues to bother me. He has threatened to show up anywhere i go, hurt me if i date someone else and also hurt the other person as well. Im thinking of getting an order of protection. However, my mom lives in the Caribbean and will have surgery in August. Will this stop my child and i from traveling internationally?
A: You need a sole custody order – thus file a petition for same. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Family Law attorney for more info.
