My mother in law has retained temporary custody of her granddaughter.

This answer was rated:

My mother in law has retained temporary custody of her granddaughter. She is going for permanent custody. Currently there are no child support arrangements. My soon to be ex wife/her daughter is still receiving the child support as if she had custody. What can she do to reroute this?

Kirk Adams : Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
Kirk Adams : Your mother would have to file a motion to modify the child support order and ask the court to order that the money be paid over to her as long as she's the custodian/guardian of the child.
Kirk Adams : The judge can then enter an order that child support be paid to her as long as she has custody.
Kirk Adams : Thanks for your question, and if you need anything further, please do not hesitate to ask.
