i have a sole legal custody of the child, other parent have a visitation rights, i moved to moontownship pensylvania on september 15with my child, i got a very good job and planning live there and all my life, other parent live in other state, and have only visitation rights and see a child every other weekend , can i apply for child support as i have a custody? and i am not a pensylvania resident yetThe relocation with child has been allowed by MD court, which awarded sole physical/legal custody to me, father. Our MD attorney adviced me not to raise issue about child support until child becomes resident of another state (PA), which is either 6mo or 1 year depending on what lawyer answers. Therefore child support issue has not been raised yet. PA law says i can ask for child support starting from day i was awarded sole legal/physical custody, i.e. i can ask for back-pay too. Question: when it is best to apply for child support in PA? Thank you very much in advance
