Yes, you can lose custody of your child if you miss a hearing or other court appearance in Queens, and unfortunately, many parents will use this fact to try to manipulate the situation.
For instance, they may try to schedule courtroom activity during your busy season for work to make it difficult for you to attend.
Sometimes they’ll even “forget” to notify you of scheduled court dates so you have to work through the mess after the fact.
If you’re dealing with an ex-spouse who isn’t playing fair and uses the court system to punish you and constantly attack your custody, you should get help right away.
Queens custody attorneys know how bad these situations can be, and can work to protect you and your children from a vengeful ex.
