Q: My sons father and I are currently fighting for custody. I keep my son the majority of the time. My son hates being with his father. He has not established a residence in which my son resides when he is in the custody of his father. His father owes child support and does not buy him even the basic necessities. We each, including my son, have our own attorneys. How much will the judge take into consideration what my son wants?
Q: He is mentally and emotionally abusive. I don't want him in my house and he called acs on me 2 times but they wont take him. They said i have to keep him. Emotionally and mentally i cant anymore, im seeing a theropist. I need help!!!!
Q: My ex and myself have a legal custody agreement now he gets our son, Friday 430- Sunday 430. Usually im nice and let him stay until Monday. He just got a new job and wants to pick him up on Saturday night. He doesn't want to pay a sitter and wants me to watch our son. But I can't I work now and during the week when I have my son its my responsibility to find a sitter. He can't legally change the schedule right?
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?
Q: There was a Contempt motion filed against me from the fathers lawyer (I'm the mother) based on allegations from CPS saying I was acting in a threatening manner during a supervised visit that my daughter had with her father October 30, 2018 .. the visits are from 3pm to 5pm and I only do a 5 minute transitioning to help my daughter feel comfortable during visits because she used to scream and cry during every visit for the past 7 months but after 5mins is up I go and sit in the waiting area until the visit is over. I just would like to know, what is a contempt motion?
Q: I am 23 years old and I have a 14 month old child. My child's father lives in Buffalo, NY. Due to their own personal disliking of the father, my family keeps the baby from him. I know it's my ultimate decision on what to do with my child but because I'm "a kid and a new time mom who don't know what she's doing" my family make it their business to control everything as if it was their kid and by any means necessary prevents the baby from going outside. Me and my child's father are on the same page with visitation but just my family is the problem. He's pays child support. I wanted to know how can I successfully have her visit overnights with her father in buffalo? Since he lives out of town and they need the father to file for visitation in my town, I petitioned for joint custody case so he have rights too and in that court we can include visitation. (He's doing the court date electronically/through the phone since he's out of town). Will the joint custody case be a waste? Should he just file for visitation? Can he if leaves over 350 miles away? Is there an electronic way to do that too or he goes to his family court and they do it on his behalf? Trying to figure out all options.
A: Yes, as part of your joint custody filing, you can enter into a stipulation providing for his parental access. There's no need for him to file a separate visitation petition if the both of you are in agreement - the stip can be entered on your petition. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
Q: There is no court order in terms of custody or visitation. There is a child support order. My son is 8 years old and we have a strong relationship. We live in NY. My son wants me to pick him up from school, she doesn't want me to. Can the school prevent me from picking him up if she is not present? Can I be arrested for going against her orders?
Q: I'm only three months and he has done the most. you'd think finding out that i was pregnant would change somethings but it didnt. He exposed me threatened to kill me and my little sister if i even gave an abortion, i have a court case open with him, several police reports on him (DV), and he's been admitted to a hospital for trying to overdose on tylenol. i dont want him around my child if he can threaten my litlle sister and do all of these other things how can he not try something with my child? i do not trust him and he's good at being persuasive and getting people to believe hes right and im wrong kind of thing. ni want my baby to be safe please help me before my baby gets here.
Q: I have filled for full custody and don't really have any one to help me with serving the children's father. Plus he bouces around after work so his job would be the best place to get him served but not sure about how to get the sheriff to go to Hawthorne NY.
Q: Father wants joint custody I (mother) wants full custody .. children reside with me. We can not agree. We live in Westchester county .. father family member served me for joint custody. I filed for full custody .. but I have no one to serve him..
