Recent Parental Alienation questions

I am in NYC. Can you answer? (for NY state) I experience

hi, I am in NYC. Can you answer?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: (for NY state)JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I experience parental alienation from father of our son. I am mother. He has full custody. Son is 12. Currently there is temporary court order for my visitations every other week for 4 hours. My son first met me then started telling he does not want to see me. I recorded phone calls where father tells I am worthless mother with son near him. Also 1 phone call where father threatens me. Should I file violation order in court? Next court date is June 15th. I definitely don't see my son every other week. And father engaged in parental alienation. Initial divorce was in 2006, finalized may 2008. I gave custody at the time to father voluntarily with liberal visitations. I started this court as petitioner because became increasingly difficult to arrange visitations. No new thing - my son tells me he does not want to see me. Last saw him on Mother Day for 10 minutes. But before on April 24th we spent good 2 hours together for his birthday April 21st. Drastic change in son's attitude toward me in last weeks, for worse.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NY

I have a 5 month month old child and his father and I having

Hi. I have a 5 month month old child and his father and I having a court agreement that he is to pick him up on days that he is off at times we agree upon. the child is breastfeeding and today I had to be at work. I told him 9 to 2 o'clock and he told me he couldn't make it at 9 he said he would be here at 10 and he would drop him off at 3. I told him 2 o'clock because I have other children that I need to pick up from school and it would be inconvenient for him to drop them back off at the babysitter at 3 o'clock. He never replied and he claims he didn't have money to pay the babysitter either. He took the baby with only one bag of milk which will only sustain him until 2 o'clock. He refuses to bring him back on time at 2 o'clock so now I have to worry about my child being hungry until I'm able to get to him is there something I can do about this or a way to get him back earlier because he obviously doesn't care about the well-being of our son.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Last week that police had to be called because he was being aggressive and I had my other children at home with me. No official report was made but the fact that I had to call was a problem

This question is in reference to a child custody situation

This question is in reference to a child custody situation for my son. He and the child's mother were never married. The child is his, no question. They lived together with the child since her birth for 6 years. The mother left with the child in September, 2016, got a restraining order on my son and moved in with her parents. The restraining order was executed and is now done. My son did not have any contact with them for the time as required by the restraining order. Now the restraining order is up and he is trying to see his daughter, but the mother (and her mother) are not letting this happen, saying that he must go to the court and get supervised visits. He wants to work with the mother and make arrangements together, but this is not happening. My question is...is there anything right now that he can do to get the mother to let him see the child?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Florida (Orlando)JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, he has been trying to work together with the mother. But, she is not cooperating and they are only 1/2 mile down the road.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The mother has had a report of domestic violence about 9 years ago that was dismissed and then the last restraining order. My son feels this will affect the outcome of the situation

If my 16 year old son drops out of school do I have to pay

If my 16 year old son drops out of school do I have to pay child support? I have joint custody, but my ex wife refuses to allow me to see my son. We've been divorced for almost 8 years and I've see my son maybe 5 times in 8 years and zero times within the last 5 years. I pay $936 per moth and receive effectively zero visitation and have zero contact with my son. This is completely not right and seems criminal in my opinion. I've taken her to court twice. She was found in contempt, but I was not awarded custody. At his point, I'm 100% alienated from my son and have frankly given up . Why should have to continue to pay?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I live in Colorado. My divorce the decree from Wyoming and my son resides over 300 miles from my location. It's been this way since 2009JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, but my ex mother in law is the retired county "Clerk of Court" after 35 years and is VERY "connected" you might say. My ex's family does personal favors for many of the judges in the region as well. And, I'm originally from Califorina and not part of the "good ol' boy network.... It is a very corrupt situation.... Yes, even in the 21st century there is still a "Wild West" north of the Rockies. I've spent about $60,000 in legal fees to gain access to my boys over the years with zero benefit from it. Lots of heartache and pain in this one. I've never missed a child support payment either... The first 4 years was $1,800 per month and like I said it's $939 per month today. The system is completely BROKEN!!! 60 minutes should pickup this story....JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nope!

My ex, the NCP was ordered to stop taking our minor child to

My ex, the NCP was ordered to stop taking our minor child to therapy that I had not given consent to. I did not know for several sessions that our child was attending and when I discovered that not only was she taking them, she was also sitting in on the sessions and practically leading our child and the therapist with false accusations and half truths. The therapist had no idea about our case from any perspective but my ex's. I did not give permission and they continued to see our child regardless. The judge ordered them to stop 5 months ago, but my child mentioned that they have continued to see them as recently as a week ago.I was granted sole physical in 2013 after having a restraining order approved. We have been back and forth to court at least 4 times with my ex trying to increase parenting time in order to reduce child support responsibilities. I am a victim of domestic violence witnessed by our child as well. Ex's RFOs have never been granted and only step up modifications in their visitation time has been ordered by judge.Is it likely I can be successful in getting sole legal?
