Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hi, I'm trained and experienced in family law, and I would love to help you through your current situation.
You will have to petition for custody: www.nycourts.gov/forms/familycourt/pdfs/gf-17.pdf
You will petition in the county of your jurisdiction.
Then, the court will determine who gets custody and placement of the child.
And, the court will determine any child support award it feels should be awarded.
Does that make sense?
I cannot see your response.
If it's caused by forum technical difficulty, I will switch to Q & A to accommodate you.
I know that i need to go to court to obtain a petition for custody but I was just wondering if i was taking the correct measures to proceed with the case.
Is it okay for me to let my son go with his father if i do not know his whereabouts.
It's okay for you to allow that, should you choose to do so.
I cannot see what you typed.
okay that is not the answer that i excepted regarding this matter; however, thanks for the advise. Perhaps i was not asking the question the wrong question. i did not learn anything new this evening.
I'm sure I can answer whatever question(s) you might have.
It's okay. Thanx for your assistance this morning. I will be in court tomorrow.
