Nov 15 I filed for child support in TX. In April 16, I made a complaint with Texas. Finally a case worker got involved. After being told from someone in the Attorney General's office that I would have to fly there for court and etc. I got the AK child support involved (Aug 16). I tried to work things out with the non custodial parent but things did not work. AK received paperwork from me in Jan 17. The case proceeded but still no updates. The non-custodial parent was served June 17 and a court date was set. I still have yet to receive the citation for court. I called two weeks ago and gave my case worker a POC for the TX child support and asked that she speak with him. As of 15 Aug I found out that I do not have a case worker and someone was just doing the work on the side in AK. I've found out that they do not have any documents that I requested from the state of TX and that the support order is only going back to April 16 which is incorrect. I'm a mess right now and not sure what is the next route to go. There seems to be so much incorrect information within the case Should I get an attorney involved especially since I'm thinking of filling for full custody. The child lives in AK
If I understand correctly, you are the "non-custodial" parent who is trying to establish paternity (and "custody"/child support/etc.). If the child resides in AK, that is the appropriate forum for your suit. If the child resides in Texas, this is the appropriate forum for your suit. Interstate cases can be difficult and as it sounds like you have had difficulty getting things done yourself, I would suggest consulting with an attorney.
Best of luck to you.
