Q: I have a one bedroom for my child , the mother stays with her boyfriend , my child sleeps in the living room on air mattress that deflates in the middle of the night. Can I get temporary full custody until she’s in a better living situation?
A: I can’t say whether CPS would intervene or not, but if you can provide better housing for the child, then you should strongly consider filing for custody. That said, housing is 1 factor amongst roughly 20+ factors considered in a custody determination. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
