How many days to I have to file a counter petition for child custody? Do I have to respond to my ex's petition?

Q:  My ex filed for sole custody of our son, we now have joint custody.

A:  David's Answer:  There is no technical deadline to file a counter-petition, but it should nevertheless be done as soon as possible. Additionally, while many people do not file Answers to Petitions, I advise to do so (same is permitted pursuant to Art. 4 of the CPLR). For a full assessment, schedule a consultation with a NYC Child Custody attorney. --  David Bliven, Bronx Child Custody attorney (
