Q: I am separated from my husband. We have a child support agreement through the courts where he pays me child support. Do we have to go to court again to establish who has full custody? Moving outside county/state?
Q: We have joint custody at the moment. I have an order of protection against him because he was physical with me. The police charged him with menacing. He has purposely defied court orders and we are still going to court. I had an attorney but I could no longer afford them and now have a court appointed attorney. My ex is now using the school to contact other parents. He is trying to Portray me as a drug addict alcoholic.. how can I stop him from this? He hasn't filled out any documents at the school. Only I have.. and parading my sons 3yr old class mates parents in court to prove defamation isn't an option. He has no involvement with the school other than pick up and drop off during his assigned visitation days. And that his grandmother does... how can I stop this harassment? Can I stop the school from giving out information?
Q: My ex has repeatedly encouraged my daughter to disregard the visitation schedule with me and has encouraged her to make plans during my scheduled time. I've petitioned the court several times and though the court has acknowledged that there has been interference, nothing has changed and my ex continues to disobey the order. My ex has ignored the order by choosing to make other plans for my son during my scheduled visitation, not informing me when he was sick/gone to the doctor, and as far as enrolling our daughter in an out of state boarding school. (we have joint legal custody). My daughter has now chosen to not communicate with me and my ex continues to keep me out of the loop. Can I Petition the court for a forensic evaluator to determine if there has been Parental Alienation? I am not sure of what course of action to take since my child is now at a boarding school.

Q: I have a custody settlement agreement which was entered as court order (White Plains Family) almost a year ago. The mother has physical custody; we share legal custody. In nearly 2 years since I have never missed (or even been late) for a scheduled visitation. I have an unexpected required business trip that means I would miss a regularly scheduled overnight. I gave the mother five days notice in advance. Typically, I pick up and drop off from preschool. On other days our child is bussed for pick up and drop off from mothers home to/from preschool. He is in a special ed program and Westchester county provides CPSE services including bussing. The mother has informed me that neither she nor the nanny will be home when our child is dropped off from school on the regularly scheduled day and that if I don't pick him up, she will pursue revocation of my visitation and shared legal custody as well as report me to CPS as having abandoned our child. If no one is at the mother's home when the bus drops off from school in the afternoon, is the mother responsible as the physical custodian or am I responsible because this was a regularly scheduled visitation?
