I had 50/50 custody of my teenage daughter until last

HI. I had 50/50 custody of my teenage daughter until last January, after she was caught stealing the morning after pill. At that time I also found out that she was stealing from many other stores as well as smoking marijuana daily and making other poor decisions, such as hanging out with homeless men at the park and getting hash from them. She left to her mother's house and never returned to my hosue. Three weeks later, her mom filed for child support and I haven't seen my daughter since she left my house on Jan 4. She is trying to get a drivers license and she called me a week before she turned 16 and 5 weeks after she went to her mom's house and asked me to sign for her permit. Since our parenting plan agreement stated that she had to have a 3.0 gpa to get her license and she had less than that and we had recently discovered her marijuana use and other irresponsible behavior, I said no. She yelled "I hate you" and hung up the phone on my and that is the last I've heard from her. The next day, her mother's attorney sent me a letter via email threatening to file a restraining order against me for emotional abuse of my daughter. I have no way of contacting her at this point. I recently discovered by looking at her old cell phone that I had taken from her after she was caught stealing, that she has been sleeping over at her boyfriend's house often and that they buy and sell drugs to their friends, including ounces of marijuana and acid. She also partakes in these drugs. Her mother works out of town every weekend and she is left to her own devices. Child Support Services has determined that I owe about $900 per month in child support. Her mother is self employed and works with her husband at several businesses that they own together. One of their businesses just went into escrow for 1.3 million dollars, but she reports that she makes $4000 per month, while her husband makes $10,000+. My wife is on disability and needs extensive therapy at the moment. The child support order seems unfair on many levels. One, my daughter is not being supervised properly - I feel like child support payments are supposed to be so she will be taken care of, however she is out of control and her mother doesn't care. I've told her mom about the drug use, etc. Asked her to consider transferring schools, asked her to drug test my daughter, etc.. however she refuses to do anything. I also think the order is unfair based on the income. My ex wife has purposefully misrepresented her income. I'm not sure what I can do. The attorneys at child support services said that the court will not care about any of these things and will order the full amount. Is there anything I can do to protect my daughter and is there anything I can do about this unfair child support order? Thank you.

I live in the state of Florida. By son just turned 16 and his girlfriend is 14. When my son was 15, the girl became pregnant. She is now in the hospital to have the baby and was confronted by a social worker. The social worker wants to speak the girls mother and told her that she needed to get law enforcement involved and have my son removed from the girls birthing room. Can my son be charged with anything since he was 15 and she 14 at the time of the pregnancy? What about us as parents, could we be charged with anything?

I am currently a 23 year old male military member living in

I am currently a 23 year old male military member living in the State of Alaska. A 16 year old girl was texting me and we made plans to meet up. She also sent two pictures wearing a bra and underwear. I did not send any pictures. I then got a text from someone else stating that she would not make the meeting and that local news, authorities, and military authorities would be contacted. As far as I know, the age of consent according to both Alaska and military law is 16. Do I have anything to worry about?
