I pay a large amount of child support to my children's

I pay a large amount of child support to my children's mother however I believe they spend more overnights with their grandparents. Can I have my child support modified? and how can I prove that the children are living more with their grandparents then with their mother? i know the children reside more at their grandparents house and this has been going on for years. I would like to have full custody if this is the case if they are not being raised by their mother and raise my children being the father but I don't know where to start. I did not give up my custodial rights as a father to have the grandparents raise them. However the grandparents and mother will never admit this living arangement is taking place

I have joint custody of my two sons with my ex-husband. I want to move to Arizona to live near my parents, who support us financially. There is nothing in our divorce paperwork or parenting agreement dictating where I can live with the children. Can my ex-husband prevent us from moving?

Looking for advice. I've have legal visitation of my 9yr old

Looking for advice. I've have legal visitation of my 9yr old granddaughter since 2010. For numerous reasons we (my son and I) have decided to file to get joint custody (physical w/ me). I have no restrictions regarding my visitation. Since they have been made aware of our trying to get custody of my granddaughter they are cutting us off from her. They denied my son his last visitation. Now they are telling me that unless I agree to not take my granddaughter to see her 10yr old aunt they will not give me her for my weekend. They say her 10yr old aunt is not a good influence (this accusation only since we filed to amend). Would you advise I agree and get my granddaughter and not let her see her aunt? I feel like if I do that I am agreeing that she is a bad influence....or should I say that I will not agree to their terms and let them deny the visitation and file another show cause?JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: VirginiaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, we are proceeding with the motion to amend ourselvesJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No

My ex-husband and I have joint custody, with me holding

My ex-husband and I have joint custody, with me holding domicile rights. I live in Livingston Parish, Louisiana(where it flooded), and I sent my daughter to her dads while the flooding of our school is being assessed. We both agreed that it would be good for her to go to school by him, while the flooding situation was still present. In order to do this, i had to sign an emergency victim paper with the school board and get it approved. They initially rejected it, because my ex-husband was not the domicile parent. Since I am refusing to sign that over, due to past court battles over years ocurred, he went and had a "friend" within the parish help sign her into school anyway. Today makes her 2nd day at this school, while I am trying to legally get this straight. What are my rights?

I have a question about custody of a young child (12 months

Good evening, I have a question about custody of a young child (12 months old) in the case of divorce in the state of Florida. I'm the mother, married to the father. I'm sure there's no specific answer you can really give but I'm looking for some reassurance. I feel trapped in my marriage because we have such a young baby and I could not bear being apart from him for even one night and I'm scared that if I divorced my husband I would have to be apart from my baby due to joint custody. Is there any general way the courts in FL usually handle physical custody of young children? (Where the baby resides and sleeps every night)? I'm his mother and he needs to be with me.

What caused this was a real bad harassment episode at work and my husband - my internet accounts were broken intoMy husband allowed someone to have our Apple ID and they accessed my online notebook within the app. They read my private thoughts as well as my work notes Many work notes related to the harassment were erased Things would go missing in my house. I believe MMy husband hired someone as a PI He did many cruel things that led to my hospitalization but on record he will appear as the concerned husband and I the sick patientBefore the hospitalization he was real apologeticBought me a bunch of stuff and wrote some sort of affirmation that was filed with the court. It said I was entitled to half his assets - should he live in the marital residence with the kids he would pay me 25 percent of his salaryIn 2008 after he got us in trouble with the IRS he wrote me something similar about my entitlement to half of all his assetsMy son plays ice hockey 6 days a week my husband does all of that and has been manager of the team.
