My ex-husband and I have two children. We have joint custody

My ex-husband and I have two children. We have joint custody but their primary residence is with me. The parenting plan/divorce decree stipulates that a good friend of mine cannot be in contact with the children. I have since married this friend. Is it possible to remove this stipulation from the agreement so that we may live as a family?

I am currently paying my court ordered child support

I am currently paying my court ordered child support payments by payroll deduction. My employer here in Georgia sends the money to the child support division in Tennessee, because that is where my 2 girls and their mom lived for 6 months. They moved back to Georgia about a year ago. Does it make a difference that my payments still go to the Tennessee child support division?

I am currently "separated" from my husband of 10 yrs. and by

Hello. I am currently "separated" from my husband of 10 yrs. and by "separated" meaning we still live in the same apartment but in separate rooms. He originally wanted a divorce and announced it on Nov 2015. It's been 7 months and nobody has filed and his main reason for it is because he cannot afford it. He makes $50k a year and we have two children together both under 18. I am currently on disability due to an illness that requires me to be on dialysis 3x a week. I also recently acquired a weekend part time job (2x a week). He has consulted with a lawyer back in November and was told for both our incomes, I only get $500 for child support for both kids and alimony. I want to now file for the divorce because my situation at home is not the best for me and my children emotionally. My husband has now spent at least $10k on himself (since the separation) and his parents are helping pay for the apartment. So basically, most his paycheck goes to himself and whatever purchases he makes for himself. I wanted to get advice on what steps I should do to move forward with the divorce. I am unable to work full time due to my illness and he wants me to work full time to support myself. I just want to know if alimony and child support for me and my children is in fact $500. Thank you and any info would be greatly appreciated!

I paid child support through order of Nevada, the payments

I paid child support through order of Nevada, the payments were actually sent to Arizona as my children lived with their mom there. The state of AZ is saying they only have 200.00 for her and I paid for at least 15 years. Why would they have 200.00 and no more? It has been at least 17 years since the kids were of age and no more support was needed. What can I do to ensure the mother gets the money I paid?
