    You can file a petition in the Family Court in the county in which you reside to enforce your existing order. So long as your child has not resided outside New York for the last six months, New York would be the child's home state for jurisdiction purposes. If the child has not yet been to New York, you probably would need to file an enforcement petition in the child's home state, which is where the child has lived for the past six months. Either way, you can seek to enforce your existing...

    Changing venue is not the answer to your problems. If nothing has been done about the misconduct of the grandparents, I highly doubt that the Court is going to grant a motion to change venue even if there is a valid basis to change venue at this point. My suggestion is to get the best attorney that you can afford and fight to get your kids back in the court where the matter is pending now. Anthony Buono www.AnthonyBuono.com

    Not very likely. Parents do not get to choose the attorney for their children. Attorneys for children, formerly known as law guardians, are required to speak to their clients and advocate for their client’s wishes. This means that in most cases at least one parent, and often both parents, do not like the attorney for the children. If parents could have their pick of attorneys for their children, nothing would get done in Family Court. So do not focus on getting a new attorney for your...

    This is a hard questions to answer. A lot depends on the Judge. You should consult with an attorney who practices family law in the county where you case is pending. They will be able to advise you better. With the little information I have I can tell you that the children are old enough for the court to consider their objection to seeing their father and based upon the facts that you offered, they seem to have good reason to want not to see him. They need to explain these reasons to the...

    "Denied without prejudice" means that a request is denied at that moment but the asking party may ask again in the future. "Denied with prejudice" means that the request is denied and the asking party may not ask again for the same thing. Sounds like you need an attorney to look at the papers that your spouses lawyer prepared to make sure that they accurately reflect what the Judge ordered. You should consult with an experienced local attorney who concentrates in divorce law. As with all...

    No. The frequency of visitation usually should not change his support obligation. This is the same as if he exercised more visitation; he would not have to pay you less child support in that circumstance.
