I am not sure I explained the situation in detail. your answers makes sense but I have a follow up question. I am dealing with a mother who refuses to send any money to her parents for her child.
until there is a modification to the child support order, there is no basis for withholding support from the mother. I do not plan to withhold payment or send anything directly to her parents in a reduction from what I send the mother.
HERE is the part I need more info on:
Whether the support should continue while in the grandparents' care depends on what custody rights have been awarded to them. How do I find what rights of custody have been awarded to the grand-parents?
If the grandparents have a right to guardianship (which is basically where a non-parent has parental powers), the support order could be modified so that mom does not get paid any further. So if the right to guardianship has been granted to grandparents, I could seek to modify the support order and pay support to the 2 kids that live with their mom (my ex) and seek to order support paid directly to the grand parents as they have guardianship? Could I also seek to make that retro active to the March 22,date?
However, the grandparents could hypothetically seek support from you if they had guardianship, so the money would just be going to them instead of to mom.
This is exactly what I want to do assuming they have guardianship but I am dealing with a women who does not want to cooperate
Please see if you can clarify and of my questions
