Hello, I was wondering if someone could advise me in my current situation. I live in NYC and I am US citizen, I am married to illegal immigrant who I am currently sponsoring, we have a 2 year old son together. He is very abusive both physically and verbally, and I am afraid to leave with my son because he threatens that he accuse me of kidnapping my child. He is doing illegal drugs and abuses alcohol, I am a total abstinent. He threatens that he will kill me if i try to take the babe and leave. I was planning to leave the state in secret, but I guess first I need temporary child custody
order before I can do that. How do I go about that, and how long do I have to wait for the order? Also will he be notified that I am trying to get the custody of my child before I will get it?
JA: Our average wait time is under 20 minutes. Sometimes it takes just a minute. More complicated questions that need more research might take an hour or two. I'd be happy to chat with you while you wait. The stories I've heard working here... Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: New York state
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No I have not filed anything yet, I don't want him to know that is what I am planning to do
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so
