My daughter is a month old, Me and her father was never married, He signed the birth certificate, He gave his mother permission to take my daughter from Syracuse NY to Atlanta ga July 3 and I haven't seen her since, There's no custody papers filed.
File a writ of habeas corpus. If the grand parents keep the child for six months in Georgia, then you will have to fight for custody in Georgia.
Having a family in America requires active participation in court proceedings. You have to have a lawyer on retainer at all times and be ready to file petitions in family court. Otherwise, you'll be trampled on by family members the way you are now.See question

Yes. You will have enormous difficulty challenging her asset transfers. First, none of us can solicit your business here on Avvo. Second, we cannot guide you by remote control to do your case yourself. Lastly, you may have problems understanding both the role of an attorney and the effect of the recipient's income on child support. You may be spinning your wheels for nothing, and you provide no information at all for us to answer your question.See question

I am not sure you are serious or not. The way I interpret your issue is that you feel bound to one way of earning money, and that depending on government to facilitate your income-making endeavors. Specifically, you rely on a 'license' provided by the government to connect the dots: income, home and child support. You are missing something huge.
This nation went down the tubes decades ago and you are feeling the residual effects of asinine legislation meant to patch up problems. For example, too many welfare mothers were sitting for generations on the taxpayer's dime, so an asinine piece of legislation called child support enforcement was the fix. So now, all of us are on welfare in one form or another: fathers are payors into this system while all mothers are recipient in this system. This nation is an interlocking network of payments from dads to moms from coast to coast. The law that is at the heart of this moronic system takes on a one-size-fits-all mode to make uniform a national model for men paying women.
You bought into this by attempting to pay all your bills while the government tells you have only one bill: child support. The punishment for not paying that bill is loss of a government benefit: your license. As you fail in one thing, you fail in all things.
Over these decades, men have adjusted. They do work that requires no licenses. They reside in places that are free of charge or nearly free of charge. They cook liquor in the woods. They cut grass. They put up sheet rock. They barter.
Otherwise, if you file petitions, no one will listen to you. Courts will not diminish your order of support without fancy lawyering and set ups against the custodial parent. Money buys all the justice you want and gets you awesome results. Thus your choice is to evolve or to stick with the system.
Good luck.See question

The state of New York gets a matching fund for each order of support, so you can expect the court will give you a huge run around when it comes to setting things straight even though the government abdicated its role in child support to the custodial parent.
I don't believe you should be going to court alone and making substantial legal decisions without the advice of counsel. Perhaps that is exactly why the court adjourned your appearance in front of a judge. Also, we don't know if the support order was payable to you, or to the government.See question

Don't jump out of the frying pan into the fire. Lawyers don't grow on trees and judges are not the orchard pickers.
Assigned lawyers are not private lawyers. They don't have time to return calls and writings. No lawyers cares about the threats of the opponent. I don't. Not settling means a trial, and you may totally lose at trial. Lawyers are not investigators. Lawyers do not subpoena based on requests. Lawyers don't take requests. Courts cannot make immature adults grow up. Lawyers don't watch for evidence. Lawyers are not fact witnesses so they need to know very little detail in a person's case because the person testifies providing that detail to the court.See question

In the family and divorce world, prior agreements can be 'modified' based on a 'change of circumstances.' Also, each jurisdiction has judges that have their own interpretation and discretion as to what constitutes enough of a change. So in this case, retain counsel who is familiar with his jurisdiction's judges/referees. It's a 'gold ol' boys' network you are looking for.See question

Child support is the nation's greatest mind fake. I would be very surprised you will see any money unless you take steps to personally sue the father and have a lawyer with you how knows what he is doing.

Most interactions between parents and children have been criminalized so you must be very cautious when dealing with children. The tap9ing can and will be used against you.See question
