Q:I was awarded full legal and sole custody of my son by default. The father never showed twice, then I went to court for visitation only they provided me with a public defender and now he is Trying to over turn my order that another judge put in place tut o make my son father happy I live in Westchester county the father lives in Brooklyn with his parents. Our son was born prematurely at 25 weeks weighing 1 lb and 6 ounces. I'm the one taking our son to doctors and therapy and early Intervention our son is 1 years old now. His father sees the child now every other weekend and when he does have his child his grandparents watch our son not his father. The father is in a motorcycle club and parties every weekend, I do everything for our son but he wants 50/50 for what. You lied to the court about visitation which he gets and we even talk about his having him on certain holiday and even a vacation. On top of my son father in our relationship used to beat up on me so I have a restraining order on him and his lawyer wants me to stay in a close radius to him I don't think so my address is also confidential now in the courts I'm afraid of his father I need advice.
Q:My ex-wife, after our divorce was finalized, made an Order to Show Cause in a New York Supreme Court to relocate and was successful; as such, she and our child moved out of state.. There was a hearing, and I fought the alleged merits to the move. The judge issued an "Interim Decision After Hearing". The judge set forth several conditions that my ex has to comply with, e.g. , proof of employment, proof that she came back to NY to visit between now and our next court appearance (which will be in March 2018, proof of pediatrician's treatment of child, proof of family's support in new locale and proof of compliance w/ other matters . If she succeeds in convincing the judge that she has complied, then the move will be made permanent. I WANT THE JUDGE TO ORDER THEM TO RELOCATE BACK TO NY because the family reneged on the promised support, the child is not seeing a doctor for a somewhat serious condition and more. I believe that the move was not made in the child's best interest. There is also new evidence, which is relevant, and very well might have changed the outcome of the decision that I'd like to submit, that I couldn't have known at the hearing, because they just came to light.

Q: Child custody case is happening between my girlfriend and her ex husband, who in fact is nothing to those kids. Anyways, he had called CPS and it was unfounded. In the CPS case it was mentioned that I smoke weed and offered it to one of the kids. Now I just read the paper his lawyer had written to the courts where he stated I am a current or former drug addict. I had taken a drug test for CPS cause there was nothing to hide, but now this is going to far that he is now telling lies in court and mentioning me with these statements and getting kids involved with these lies as well. What can I do or should I do?
Q: I need a court appointed lawyer for a custody case. I can't afford one. The judge asked me if I wanted one at the first hearing. I didn't think I needed one at the time, but then realized that I do for the next hearing.

Q: My daughter's school is holding an annual special education review meeting, which I'm invited to. Can I attend if my ex-wife is there?

Q: I have a court order stating I am suppose to receive $300 weekly. He gets paid bi weekly and I they started sending me payments biweekly. Which I am ok with. But now payments are not coming in as frequent. I never know when I'm getting my child support money. The last 2 checks I received because I called child support and filed a complaint but it's going on 3 weeks and I still have no child support payments. I have asked my sons father if he can talk to his HR dept but he says they take the money out of his check and me not getting the money is not his problem. What can I do?
