In December of 2015 I was granted removal of my children

In December of 2015 I was granted removal of my children from the state of IL to the state of TN.My original divorce/custody agreement made me residential parent with joint custody in IL. That occurred 05/05/05.My question is this, by law, do I have to adhere to the IL court order and take my kids for visitation with their father in IL? They are 13 & 14 and have ZERO interest in seeing their father for extended periods of time.So, does IL family law have relevance in TN?

I received a notice stating that my ex husband had been

I received a notice stating that my ex husband had been served with a rule to show cause for non payment of child support. He gets significantly behind and then will make a payment. But the court finally issued the summons. In the meantime, he had child support drafted from his paycheck...weekly. He said that the case was no longer on the docket. I called the courthouse to clarify this and I was told that it is still on the docket, but....since he has made some payments, that if he doesnt show up..he will probably not be penalized. Really?? Is that how it works? That being said, I do believe my ex is going to be there tomorrow. The rule to show cause is to show for non payment of over $5000. Is a judge likely to just let it go?
