Mother with child (2y) lives in NY. I live in FL. Paternity is not established yet. I didn't know it was my child thats why didn't help and i had no contact with baby yet. I want her to live in FL she doesn't.
If the child lives in NY, the Florida Court won't have jurisdiction over the child. Child support will depend on a number of factors: the parents' respective incomes, child care expenses, health insurance expenses, parenting time allocation, etc. Unfortunately for you, it sounds like that determination will need to be made in NY rather than FL. Seek a consultation with a NY and/or a FL family law attorney to double check.
Nothing in this answer constitutes legal advice nor creates an attorney-client relationship. The attorney answering this question is doing so based on very limited information of the circumstances and does not in any way warrant the accuracy of any statements or apparent legal conclusions contained herein.
Florida does not have jurisdiction over the child if the child has never resided here. You should contact an attorney in New York about paternity, child support, time-sharing, and possible relocation.
New York as jurisdiction over the child, so any paternity action and requests for timesharing (visitation) will need to be filed in NY. I do not think any court would order a 50/50 timesharing plan when the parents are living in 2 different states. Most states base their custody determinations on what is in the best interests of the child.
