Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, if she denies that you have been paying support but it has been going directly into her account, for the amount ordered, the records can be produced. If the Judge gets involved, I do not think she would be willing to lie, when there is a paper trail and this can be easily discovered. Now, since the child lives in NYC, that is where this needs to be filed and you would need an attorney who is licensed there. The mother should not be withholding visitation as a result of not paying support but since she is, you need a court order at this time. As far as cost, you want to consult with a few family law attorneys and get quotes and select one that is affordable. Try and see if someone will take this on a flat fee basis, so that you know the cost.
