LEAVING THE US BUT HAVE CHILDREN - CHILD SUPPORT SITUATION

Asked 5 months ago - New Brunswick, NJ

My partner lives in Europe and I want to move to be with her. I have 3 kids, they are teenagers and one will soon be emancipated. I want now to move to Europe, but what is the situation regarding child support. I pay and I want to continue to pay but I will be on less money than my current job. How can I do this legally.
