I live in Arizona. My daughter lives in Colorado. I pay child support to South Carolina still from years ago! I want to change parenting time and child support and see my daughter more. I don't know what state to start this process with! Her father is in rehab and I just found out that she has been in Illinois with her paternal grandma for over a month!
If South Carolina is the State where your current decree is in for parenting time and child support, you will want to start there under that same case number. In Arizona, this paperwork that you would file would be a Petition to Modify, but I am not sure if it has a different name in South Carolina. Due to the different locations of all the parties involved, there may be some complicated issues in your case. It would be wise to consult a family attorney in South Carolina to discuss the specifics of your case.
Schedule a consult with an attorney here in AZ, this situation needs to be discussed before an answer can be given. Make sure you have a copy of your current orders for the attorney to review. My office as well as others offer a free 30 minute consult where you can discuss your situation and have a game plan put together regarding how to proceed.
