CHILD CUSTODY & CHILD SUPPORT

Question #74:
Hi,
I recently have relocated from Lexington Kentucky to West Harrison New York due to my husband's job. My husband is verbally abusive and I see how this is affecting our three daughters. We've only been in New York for two months and my question is if I wanted to move back to Lexington with my children do I have that right or is there some type of legal procedure I need to go to through or to get his consent?

Answer:


Because you are a recent arrival in NY State (i.e. here less than 1 year) , Kentucky, rather than NY would have jurisdiction over any divorce or custody
Dispute you may have. However, I strongly recommend that you mediate this matter with your husband
And reach a mutually agreeable arrangement, rather than simply disappearing with the 3 girls.
Please call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange a meeting for the 3 of us to discuss this matter at greater length.
