Bronx Child Custody Attorney Archives

My son is 7 years old and he continues to cry and beg to live with me for good and no longer visit his father. How can I win?

Q: My sons father and I are currently fighting for custody. I keep my son the majority of the time. My son hates being with his father. He has not established a residence in which my son resides when he is in the custody of his father. His father owes child support and does not buy him even the basic necessities. We each, including my son, have our own attorneys. How much will the judge take into consideration what my son wants?

What is a Contempt motion?

Q: There was a Contempt motion filed against me from the fathers lawyer (I'm the mother) based on allegations from CPS saying I was acting in a threatening manner during a supervised visit that my daughter had with her father October 30, 2018 .. the visits are from 3pm to 5pm and I only do a 5 minute transitioning to help my daughter feel comfortable during visits because she used to scream and cry during every visit for the past 7 months but after 5mins is up I go and sit in the waiting area until the visit is over. I just would like to know, what is a contempt motion?

Can parents on the same page file for visitation for the non custodial parent?

Q: I am 23 years old and I have a 14 month old child. My child's father lives in Buffalo, NY. Due to their own personal disliking of the father, my family keeps the baby from him. I know it's my ultimate decision on what to do with my child but because I'm "a kid and a new time mom who don't know what she's doing" my family make it their business to control everything as if it was their kid and by any means necessary prevents the baby from going outside. Me and my child's father are on the same page with visitation but just my family is the problem. He's pays child support. I wanted to know how can I successfully have her visit overnights with her father in buffalo? Since he lives out of town and they need the father to file for visitation in my town, I petitioned for joint custody case so he have rights too and in that court we can include visitation. (He's doing the court date electronically/through the phone since he's out of town). Will the joint custody case be a waste? Should he just file for visitation? Can he if leaves over 350 miles away? Is there an electronic way to do that too or he goes to his family court and they do it on his behalf? Trying to figure out all options.
A: Yes, as part of your joint custody filing, you can enter into a stipulation providing for his parental access. There's no need for him to file a separate visitation petition if the both of you are in agreement - the stip can be entered on your petition.

Can ex's new fiance babysit child all day without supervision?

Q: My husband has a daughter with his ex who is 4 yrs old. The ex just got engaged. She knew the guy for a year and we believe he is now currently living with them. Sometimes the ex needs to work on the weekends. My husband found out that Saturday his ex new fiance watched their 4 yr old while she worked from the morning to afternoon. My husband is very upset because he said he doesnt want any man watching his daughter. But his ex defends it saying that he is going to be their daughters new step dad and it doesnt make sense to pay for a babysitter. My husband tells his ex he rather watch their daughter but they live almost 2 hrs away by train and my husband doesnt want to travel so early in the morning to pick her up and his ex doesnt want to travel so early in the morning to drop her off. My question is: can my husband prevent his ex new fiance from watching their daughter or does he need to learn to accept it?

Is she in contempt ? Can I claim child abandonment since it's been well over 4 years that I have had contact with him.

Q: My son is 19 years old. He has refused to see me and i have not seen or spoken to him in 4 years. I sent child support every month and have never missed a payment. Just last week I went to drop off child support check for October and his new Birth certificate to my ex just to find out they had moved by a neighbor. I did not know this. They both ignore my texts and phone calls ( All the time unless they need something from me). I usually mail the checks to her however, as of May I started sending it to her via Chase QP . I decided to drop off the payment this time since the Birth certificate is a legal document and I didn't want to send it via regular mail. I'm glad I did as I was told they moved out almost 4 months ago. I have called and text her to find out the new address and it's been over a week and I still have not heard from her or him. We have joint custody. At this point I am frustrated and feel disrespected. He works a full time job and parental alienation has always been an issue. I would like to petition for child abandonment to stop child support.
I am holding onto the money but I also don't want to be in contempt so I'm in a tough spot.
