I have full sole, legal, residential custody of my children

Customer Question

I have full sole, legal, residential custody of my children here in Brooklyn, NY. My Ex has not paid child support since February. My children are 16 and 10. He is a General Contractor who is in a mainly cash business. He owns a 4 family home, has several workers and a secretary, but lies about how much money he makes. He recently had people visiting from Europe, paid for dinners, 3 hotel rooms, renting a van and now plans to go to Montreal this weekend with these visitors to go to the Formula 1 races for the weekend. I know he will be paying for everything for these people as he is a show off. Ex wants to take our son there this weekend and I should give him the passport. I am inclined not to do so. Do I have to give him my son and passport? The passport application says I do not, since child support has not been paid. How old does my son have to be until he can refuse visitation at all? I heard it was 13 in NY.

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.


Is this your ex's custodial time according to any visitation schedule put in place by the court?


Is there any restriction in the visitation order about a child leaving the state or country without permission from the parent or the court? (this is typical)
