Hello. My name is Alex.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Generally, yes.

Immigration status does not have to be disclosed to the family court when petition for child custody is filed and also the family court normally would not take immigration status of the parent into consideration when deciding child custody case.

I wish you the best of luck!

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