Can I Claim Child Abandonment?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: September 28, 2020

Q: I left Florida in September 2019 after i was granted a order of projection for me & my 4 kids against their father, order of protection expired in October 2019. I have been in NYC since Sept 2019 & the father hasn’t seen or reached out in a year is it considered abandonment at this point?

A: “Abandonment” is either grounds for a divorce or to have the children adopted. It isn’t really applicable in any other context, though same is a factor the Court may consider in setting visitation. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
