Q: I have three opened cases in NY, NJ and NC with the same pertinent information. I owe no arrears in NY but it appears I owe arrears in NJ and in NC. Is this Family Court negligence?

Q: My income was verified & her wasn’t. She lied about employment & the court reused to verify. Can I get the case overturned? A: The Court does not have an obligation to “verify” her income. That’s your responsibility – you could have, for example, issued her a disclosure notice and/or served subpoenas. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child…Read More
