The mother moved form one state to another. Does the child support order move states too?
Not unless mom domesticates the order. Finding out if she obtained an order of support is difficult. Family court records are confidential so you cannot have someone visit the courthouse to get a copy of the order. You also may not know which courthouse she went to. Typically, dads get pulled over by cops who run a warrant check. That's when dads discover they have orders of support which yielded a warrant. Another variation is that mom can keep her order unenforced, and then come after you much later when a huge arrearage has accumulated.
Making America great will take decades because this cockamamy system is deeply entrenched having been in effect since the Clinton administration.

Yes - the child support order travels with the child from state to state. You need to find out if you owe support as an enforcement proceeding could result in the suspension of your licenses and garnishing of your salary. You spouse would let authorities know by filing a petition for the arrears. You should speak with counsel ASAP to learn what your rights and remedies are. Good luck!
