A: If you’ve tried the arrangement for a year & it isn’t working, then that may be a basis for modification. Of course, one would need more details as to what objections the child has. That said, the financial issues would need to be rectified in a child support case. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
