On appeal, the mother opposed visitation, asserting that the child does not know her father, does not enjoy long car rides and most likely will be frightened by the visits. The Appellate Court upheld the lower court’s ruling holding that visitation with the father is in the best interest of the child. It reversed on the costs issue, holding that the father must pay the expenses of travel, phone calls and counseling. See: Culver v. Culver, 82 A.D.3d 1296 (NY: App. Div., 3rd Dept. 2011).
