    If it's been at least a year since she left, you can get a divorce on the ground of abandonment. the abandonment would have had to continue for one year without interruption. However, as of 2010, New York adopted a no-fault divorce provision called "irretrievable breakdown" of the marriage. It is virtually impossible for your wife to contest this ground. I

    You can file a paternity petition in Family Court when the baby is born. If the mother contests the petition, the court can order DNA testing. If you are established as the father, you will have custody and/or visitation rights as well as child support obligations until the child is 21. You may also be liable for the birth expenses. Don't wait too long to file the petition because if someone else assumes the role of father (the Mother's new boyfriend or husband) and the child recognizes that...

    If you were married for at least 10 years, your wife will be entitled to one-half of your social security if less than her own. Either way, it won't affect your payment. She probably wants to wait out the ten years. If you don't want to wait, you can file a cross-complaint or start your own action and move to dismiss hers.

    The Family Court order would probably provide for curbside visitation - that is he would park in front of the house and the child would come out at the agreed-upon time (or you would bring the child out if he is too young to walk to the car on his own). The abuser would stay in his car at all times. When he brings the child back, he woul wait in the car while the child gets out and enters your home. He may also be entitled to call you for the purpose of arranging visitation and/or communicating...

    Your ex cannot unilaterally remove your son from the state without either your permission or that of the court. She would have to show that the move us in the child's best interests and that your child's relationship with you would not suffer. That is a hard burden to prove. As far as the COLA is concerned, the burden is on you to prove that you cannot afford the increase. You should file for a change of custody.

  6. Is my husband entitled to child support modification? First marriage (1) child, second marriage (3).

    The child of the first marriage takes precedence because the state feels that you should not have more children if you can't already support the ones you have and that the first children shouldn't suffer becausr of afterborn siblings. The amount of child support uyour husband pays to his first wife would be deducted from his income along with Medicare and Social Security taxes. Your husband would then be ordered to pay 29% of his remaining income for the subsequent three children. When the...

    It would depend on various factors such as how much time has elapsed since the stipulation was entered into. The best interests of the child are of paramount importance and the court would consider the impact of the shared custody arrangement on her life. Is she well-adjusted? What do her teachers say? Is she tired? Confused? Education does include preschool so you should be able to determine where she attends class. The Court would also appoint an attorney for the child to speak with her...

    Generally, the court will appoint an attorney for the children who will speak to and advocate on behalf of his or her clients. Absent some compelling reasons, the 15 year old's choice is entitled to considerable weight. Since the courts like to place siblings together,the 11 year old will probably be placed with the older sibling. An 18 year old is still entitled to child support so if the 18 year old resides with one parent and the two younger children reside with the other, there will be...

    A lawyer will be appointed for the child who will speak to the child and determine what the child witnessed and what the child desires. The Court can ask that the CPS report be expedited. You should have representation especially since your husband is represented.

    The answer would depend a great deal on the reason you were awarded custody in the first place. If abuse or neglect allegations were levied against the father, the court would want to ensure that the father has been rehabilitated and can care for the child. You would have to file a petition in the Family Court. If there was an agreement between the two of you in Family Court, you would file a petition for modification.
