    Kenneth’s Answer

    I would not agree to that option. The father's move makes it less likely that he would get custody of the child. There are so many factors that affect custody issues that it would be unfair of me to give you any definitive answer.

    Kenneth’s Answer

    It takes approximately 2-3 months to obtain a divorce after filing in NY. As for the immigration ramifications my wife is an immigration attorney and could advise you on the issue that your are asking information about. It is a complex question and you should sit down with an immigration attorney to discuss it.

  • Hi i got married on june 10 2012 and i want to know if i could get annulment because my husband

    he did not want to consumate my marriage and lied to me

    Kenneth’s Answer

    You can attain an annulment on the basis of fraud. I assume before you married he said that he at least implied that he would have a sexual relationshipwith you. By refusing to do so he entered into the marriage in fraudulent manner.

    Kenneth’s Answer

    I represented a client who's 3 year old daughter was walking around saysing f...me baby. The mother thought that her husband was doing something improper. What they found out was that the babysitter was having relations with her boyfriend in front of the child. The child repeated what she heard. This matter needs further investigation and a complaint to the proper authority would be warranted.

  • Is there anyway to terminate a fathers rights if you can prove that his lifestyle is not condusive to a childs well being

    unstable living conditions, addiction to marijuana anger problems

    Kenneth’s Answer

    If it would be in the best interest of the child one can have a parent's rights terminated. It's more likely that you could have all visits by the father supervised. I would have to hear more.
