My daughter's father was awarded a child support order in DC when he did not have physical custody of my daughter. He had abandoned her in France for 5 yrs prior, and had been collecting child support in Virginia.
The Courts did not know he abandoned her and maintained an elaborate lie pretending to have custody.
I reside in WA State. He resides in DC with my daughter who just turned 15. He brought her back to the US in 06, after I went to France and hired lawyers there to obtain custody in France. He has told the family court more lies than I can count. I initiated 2 complaints against him - one in the DC family court and another in the Federal Court for the extortion, blackmail, and all the other freaky things he has been doing (which now, I can prove)
