I have a child support question. I am considered 100%

I have a child support question. I am considered 100% disabled so I get SSD but I also get disability insurance as well. The insurance augments my SSD to pay me 65% of my original salary. I used to make a LOT of money, so disability pays my kids the max amount. I am now down to 1 child, yet I still pay the same $1157/mo in child support. My disability insurance sees that as income, so it does come out of my income even though it is sent directly to my ex-wife. I filled out the state child support form to see what I should be paying and it is more like $600/mo. I lost all of my retirement in the divorce and I could definitely use that money to build up my retirement since I had to start over. My question is that since that the money is sent federally, can the state rules still apply... I live in MOJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MOJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Just the divorceJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: not that I can think of

My son lives in New Mexico and shares custody of his

My son lives in New Mexico and shares custody of his daughter with the mother in Texas. They have never been married. He pays $500 in child support and is supposed to be able to see his daughter whenever his schedule allows. There is no set visitation schedule. Unfortunately the mother is not working with us to be able to see his daughter. She has 2 other children that are ADHD, their father is in prison and she has a restraining order against him. What are the chances of getting full custody or should we just go to court to get set visitation? What if she doesn't comply with a visitation schedule since she isn't working with us now on visitation.

The other issue is we have an order of out of state

The other issue is we have an order of out of state visitation. The child came summer but she's refusing to send him Christmas. When we tried to purchase the airfare for summer she made a national incident out of it. The court ordered we buy two round trip tickets and she come to Florida and get the child paying for her own ticket. She refused all suggested flights and airlines. We ended up purchasing her ticket because she just wouldn't agree on dates and airline. She wanted to fly to Seattle for a 33 hour layover. When we purchased the ticket she lied for days she paid the invoice we sent. She eventually paid $1096 but her ticket was over $1200. Now Christmas same thing. Now she's saying she's not sending him this Christmas because the order doesn't specifically say this Christmas. The judge verbally told her in court. She told the judge it was her birthday and not to allow Christmas. He told her no and ordered the visit but the start year apparently is not in the order. What can we do. How do we make her join the roundtrip ticket we purchase. The child's ticket can't be finalized without adding her confirmation to his ticket. His ticket needs to match my husbands ticket because they are flying first. She says we are not going to be picking her ticket.What is customary in this situation. I know civil people get together picks date and just purchase. She won't do that. Would the courts give further instructions or orders on this matter.

I live in Texas. If I move out from my home, can I take my child to live with me? By doing so, does that mean I'm walking away from my home or can I still get 1/2 proceeds when my husband sells it?

My husband is flying to Ft. on the 30th to dispute an

my husband is flying to Ft. Smith on the 30th to dispute an adoption case brought by his ex-girlfriend in regards ***** ***** daughter. She has willfully refused to allow him to see his daughter, despite permanent orders stating he is permitted to do so. I am researching parental alienation as I believe this is what she has been doing, and we would like to bring it to the courts attention.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: we are in Colorado, where permanent orders were originally set. However, jurisdiction resides with Arkansas as his ex girlfriend was permitted to move there. The courts stipulation being that if she wanted to move, child support would be waived as my husband would have to fly to Arkansas every other weekend to see his daughterJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: yesJA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Essentially that it wold be a minimum 150,000 just to start a case. We would have to file in both states.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: We have hard copy evidence of the ex's hostile attitude and direct acknowledgment from her attorney that she refuses to allow him to see their daughter. Regardless of orders. We have 5 years of recorded Skype visitations with the minor girl, displaying that my husband and she had an excellent relationship, and that the mother is doing this to alienate them from one another.
