Legal Question

Asked on: 7/10/13, 10:13 am

Can I get sole custody in NYC based on my son's father being verbally abusive towards him using curse words such as "faggot". He is not there for him financially and whenever I need a form signed by him for any sort of consent, It takes weeks and months. He has been arrested for domestic violence and DUI.

You can almost certainly get sole physical custody (i.e. your son lives with you). You may also have a good chance of getting sole legal custody. You should consult a divorce lawyer. Feel free to call us at 212-913-9907.

If there is not presently an order of custody you stand a good chance of getting it. You will need to file a petition in the family court. If there is already an order you will have to seek to modify it.
