My Son Is 7 Years Old And He Continues To Cry And Beg To Live With Me For Good And No Longer Visit His Father. How Can I Win?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: February 6, 2019

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?

A: The Judge will certainly consider the child’s wishes, but at 7yo his preference will be taken with a grain of salt given his tender age. He’s not yet at an age where the Court will give his preference “strong consideration.” Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
