I am so sorry for your unfortunate situation. If you don't go to pick up your son according to whatever agreement or court order is in place, then you can expect the other parent to file a petition to modify the order or agreement. Assuming your child is safely with the other parent, then your parental responsibilities are primarily financial. You will have to pay child support, but you cannot be forced to exercise your parenting time. I suggest you speak directly with an attorney who can fully review all your rights and responsibilities with you. Good luck!See question
My husband left the house since 2 month ago, we have 2 kids going college and I just stared a part time job ,I have many issues to discuss .
The best thing to do is contact an attorney directly so you can discuss your specific situation and all your related rights and responsibilities. If your husband was the primary "breadwinner" in the family, then his financial responsibilities to the family will continue for some time even if you are divorced.

She was born in 2005, he vanished the day after she was born. His name is on the birth certificate, however. He was abusive and forced himself upon me and since she was born, doesn't know her nor does she know him.
Unfortunately, if the father's name has been on the child's birth certificate since 2005, you will not be able to remove it without a court order. You may obtain such an order by proving someone else is or should be named the child's legal father. You can do this either by completing a step-parent adoption or by showing someone else is the biological father and establishing paternity by proof or consent. Good luck!See question
My husband and I have been married for 22 years. We were legally and religiously married at my mother's home in Virginia on June 10, 1995. During the ceremony, my husband gave me the wedding ring that he'd been given by his mother to give to me up...
If you divorce in NY, you would be entitled to keep both rings; however, if the wedding ring is a family heirloom from the husband's family, you probably should return it in trade for some other property. I suggest you speak directly with an attorney to discuss the full scope of what may or may not happen in a divorce and what choices you have. Good luck!See question

I strongly suggest you get in touch with a NY Family Law attorney immediately so you can learn about your options for bring your son back to NY. The more time that passes, the harder it will be and the more it will cost. It's not ok for one parent to simply "relocate" without the other parent's permission. The specific facts and circumstances of your case will determine whether a court would ultimately require your son to stay in NY with you or some other arrangement. You should also discuss with an attorney your marital rights and obligations and whether it is appropriate to file for divorce.
