As child support is an absolute obligation, you will be required to support your son until he is either 18 or 21, depending on when he is considered emancipated. There is a statute that governs support issues across state lines, the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act. That statute determines what is considered the child's home state. Based on what you stated in your question, I believe it is Texas. If you are seeking a modification I would consult an attorney.See question

It is possible for a grandparent to obtain joint custody of children in New York. Unfortunately, you will be required to prove something beyond "the best interests of the children." As a non-parent, you will need to show "extraordinary circumstances" that warrant your right to petition the court for custody. Extraordinary circumstances is, generally, something akin to abuse, neglect, etc. The fact that the biological father is incarcerated and you have a power of attorney makes the issues a tad more complicated for a simple answer on a website. The bottom line: you MAY have a shot, but seek an attorney to help you.See question
He has visitation Tues, Thurs, and every other weekend. Is he required by New York State law to give me his address before resuming visitation?
I'm assuming he hasn't "taken" your daughter and prohibiting you from seeing her. All custody orders that I draft always include a provision requiring full disclosure of the parties' living arrangements. Indeed, it seems to be common practice for the family court attorneys in Monroe and surrounding counties. I would review your custody agreement/order to see if the provision is present. If it is there, I would point out to him what he is required to do. If he fails to comply, I would contact an attorney to make an application to the family court enforcing that provision. If the provision is not present in your agreement/order, certainly contact your lawyer. He may be able to provide you with further assistance.See question
