mostly. I believe im going to have to pay child support. which is also a issue. my wife is claiming see cant support them when I can. I don't know what to do
Thank you. So basically the court can only award child support retroactive to the date the request (motion) is filed with the court. Child support is based on the parents respective income and the amount of parenting time. So for example if mom makes more than dad and they spend 50/50 custody, mom would pay child support. Let me get you a link to a calculator for estimating support.

Normally both parents are expected to contribute to the financial costs of raising a child so the court can require both parents to work after childcare is arranged.

I don't want to, but to expedite this. I want to notify cps of my kids living condition to get them back. is that a consideration?
Cps would have to determine the situation is unsafe. They will investigate if a complaint is made. The court can also order the children to be in the temporary custody of one parent if they determine that to be in the child's best interest. One can file an ex parte motion and the court will prioritize the scheduling of the hearing.

ex parte motion? what is that?
It is a motion you file with the courts asking for emergency temporary custody. The court prioritizes the request so it can be decided as soon as possible versus several weeks later.

how would I find out if one is already in place. she mention she went to court already
Both parents need to be served before the court has jurisdiction. The court clerk would be able to tell you if anything has been filed .
