New Custody Situation Summit County Ohio

My ex wife has has full custody of my daughter. Recently I obtained emergency custody and I care for her now and it probably will be awhile that I will have her. I pay almost $400 a month child support for my daughter, so how can I get that stopped since she is in my custody now. Her mother is being charged with domestic violence and child endangerment towards my daughter. And how do I go about getting support from her now?

Full custody, I doubt but joint custody is being pursued.

File A Motion With Courts

Hello Kalven,

CSE or the courts won't make her pay you child support based on the fact that you have temporary custody. Your only chance at getting the order stopped is filing a motion with the courts for joint custody.

Even if you get joint custody, it's still not guaranteed that your order will be stopped. We recommend that you obtain a good attorney to argue your case as to why you feel child support should be ceased due to joint custody.

Please check out our VIP memberships page if you need help finding a lawyer. Our new program helps with this matter.

Take care, and contact us anytime via this post.

So basically your saying she has the right to still receive the support payments even though she don't have he in her care and I'm the one responsible for feeding her etc..?

Yes

She still has the right to receive child support because she still has full custody and you have emergency temporary custody. Again, things could change when you are granted shared parenting.

Same boat

I'm in the same boat. My boyfriend's children's mother has an addiction to prescription medication. He recently got partial custody, but we've since taken the kids into our home because they're afraid to be alone with her. How does he go about getting emergency custody?

You need to contact your Child Support Enforcement case worker and let them know what is happening. They will review your claim and may suspend payment. Child support may still have to be paid, but it will be held until the matter is settled and either returned to you or paid to her depending on the outcome of the case. You will need to provide proof of when your child moved into your home and why.

How hard will it be?

I have shared custody of my son. Mother and I were never married. Shared custody went into effect in Feb 2012 but my son has been living with me exclusively since Oct 2011. Mother was visiting weekly, then every other week and since the shared custody went into effect she shows up every 4-6 weeks for 2 hrs. Our child is almost 2 and knows her by the name "mommy" but that is about it. There is no bond or attachement at all. My lawyer filed to have shared custody dismissed and full custody granted. Mother has not provided her current address or even if she has accomodations for our child if she were to envoke her rights to have him 1/2 the time. She also does not contribute to any expenses at all. I have proof of everything, receipts, documented schedule of where the child is and who he is with. Does Summit County, OH favor the mother like I heard most counties do no matter what?
