CHILD CUSTODY PARENTAL ACCESS to the Children and THE NEED TO ACT QUICKLY
Here are some basic tips:
1) the longer the non-custodial parent goes without seeing the parties children, the more difficult it becomes to reestablish the relationship between parent and child. The lawyer representing the custodial parent needs to be made aware of the lack of communication between parent and child and may be willing to help.
If the lawyer refuses to cooperate, some judges will permit a telephone conference call between the Court and the opposing attorneys. An Order to Show Cause to remedy visitation issues is Not a quick fix and is costly. The result cannot be guaranteed. We believe in a practical approach of attempting to call the Court with our adversary on the line. It is a very effective method of conferencing the case. The telephone call to Chambers sometimes proves to be a quick fix and can avoid costly motion practice;
2) the non-monied spouse is very often desperate for financial assistance. A practical approach may be in the form of a Family Court petition for child support prior to commencing an action for divorce as it is generally a quicker process than Supreme Court. Once an Acton for Divorce is commenced in Supreme Court, Family Court will not address the issue of Child Support.
