My 16 and 17 year old want to move in with their mother in pa. We currently live in MD. I’ve had custody since they were 1 and 2. Mom didn’t pay support for the first 3 years. Then she paid off an on for a few years. Now she hasn’t paid for the last 6 years. MD has her in arrears, PA isn’t enforcing. I don’t want to have to pay her support for them to move in with her. If we drew up a mediation agreement that stated “mom can have custody as long as she can afford them. If she requests child support the court order is back in effect and they must move home?” Would that protect me?
There are ways to reach an agreement that woudl be acceptable to the court, however, this forum is not the place to have that conversation. It appears you may do well to sit down with an attorney in private.
this is general information and not providing specific legal advise nor is it creating an attorney/client privilege nor an attorney/client relationship.
It sounds like you're already thinking of mediation, which is a good thing. If the mother of your children is willing to sit down with you and talk, there is a good chance that the two of you could reach an agreement that would be enforceable by the court that would protect the children. You would need to consult with an attorney for more specific guidance,
