Q: Is it okay for me to live in a 1 bedroom apt with my girlfriend and my son who stays with us every other weekend? He’s 3
My long term girlfriend and I just moved into a one bedroom apartment. I have a 3 year old son who I have partial custody. We have arranged his own bed for him in our one bedroom and a dresser. Is this legal? We can’t afford a 2 bedroom yet.
I'll answer based on New York law. If you are in a different jurisdiction, consult an attorney in your jurisdiction.
In a word: "Yes". The co-custodian may object, but unless there is an objectively sustainable reason otherwise, there should not be an issue. You are, of course, required to exercise good judgment and discretion around any infant.
A: The short answer is yes. However, you should keep in mind that your 3 year old is around especially if he is in the bedroom with you and act accordingly. Remember children hear and see things even if you don't think they do and you don't want him telling the mother about anything inappropriate that he saw or heard.
