Are there custody orders anywhere?

Ask Your Own Family Law Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No we don't have any custody orders at the moment. We had child support orders I paid her but she canceled the order this past month.
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 9 months ago

If there are no custody orders you file for paternity here and get such orders with restrictions on her moving away without court's permission.

You need to file and serve her asap here to avoid her leaving with child.

I appreciate the chance to help you today,sorry you are having to deal with this.

If you can positive rate 5 stars when we are done it is always much appreciated.

We have already established paternity, hence why I pay child support.
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 9 months ago

It is still called a paternity suit here where you are unmarried and no custody orders.Court will name you father again and give you custody and visitation rights.I know its a bit confusing but thats how it works in Flrodia.You would want to file it under the child support case number ***** same court.Ask the court clerk for expedited setting to try and stop this.Court will require her to return with child.
