I have partial custody for my daughter with her father and my mother. My mother insisted we both pay child support at the time she was living with her and supporting her. She no longer supports her financially or physically and she lives with me and I take care of her full time. I also do not have any control over the child support. Do I have to continue to pay child support?
Until there is a court order terminating your support obligations, you have to pay child support. Consult with legal counsel to answer your questions and to handle your case.
This answer is for general purposes only and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
You will need to change the court orders. First, you may have to change the time allocated to you if you have not done so already. Even if your mother is allowing you to have the child full-time, if the court order says otherwise, she could seek to enforce that. Likewise, you will have to file for a change in the support order.
