The case is filed in Central Islip. We were not married and have a working agreement. There are no issues however my daughter and I have relocated to Manhattan almost 3 years ago. I am the custodial parent and prefer to have the case here in Manhattan for future appearances if necessary
Family court has jurisdiction in the county where your child resides. Therefore, all future petitions should be brought in Manhattan. Best of luck.
