Can I File For Child Abandonment On My Children’s Father Even If I Have Full Custody Of Them?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: May 13, 2020

Q: I have full custody of both of my children. Also have an order of protection of the father. He has not reached out or provided for them.

A: there is no such thing under New York law. Instead, his “abandonment” of the children would either be grounds to have them adopted by a step-parent, or a defense to any visitation action he files. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
