This is the state's general trial court, where documents and cases are publicly available and easily accessible: A search term and 30 seconds gets you the court papers.

He is extremely unlikely to obtain full custody of Krishna, and Dell acknowledges he doesn't want it. He says he would prefer joint custody, which he believes, incorrectlythat the court cannot order.
New York custody cases are judged according to the " best interests of the child.
But the threat to pursue full custody is a common tactic in disputes between parents. Often the parent more interested in custody will agree to less money in exchange for more time or decision-making control over the children. Advertisement The request for an order of child support is where Dell's suit turns from unseemly to ridiculous.
The suit says that if he is awarded full custody, he will be entitled to child support, but that he'll waive his right to receive it Even though he has more money than Lakshmi, she would be on the hook for a percentage of Krishna's expenses if Dell had custody. In Dell's public narrative, this draws attention to the fact that while he could ask for money, he won't. The melodrama amps up in the next request, which is that Krishna's last name be changed to Dell.
Lakshmi ignored his requests to have Dell's family name included on Krishna's birth certificate and compounded the insult by acknowledging new boyfriend Forstmann. Krishna's middle name is Thea, which Dell says is a nod to Theodore Forstmann. Under New York law, either parent can change a child's name. Dell states disingenuously that "there can be no reasonable objection to the change of name proposed," but there are obvious objections.
No legal presumption exists for a child to carry her father's last name as her own, and Krishna has been known by her current last name for nearly a year.
Parts of Dell's factual recitation are implausible too. He claims that Lakshmi "failed" to identify Dell as Krishna's father on her birth certificate.
