Q: “The father of my kids left to another country 8 months ago and he isn’t returning but there’s a lot of things like taking passport for my kids that he needs to be involved in and I can’t get him in person for those things. I need full custody asap…”
A: You can file for sole custody in the situation. That said, the court will generally requite that the father be served with the Petition. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
