Where Do I Stand On Residental Custody New Jersey
by Tom Cain
(lincoln park, NJ - Morris county)
My daughter’s mother (never married) gave custody to me 10 months ago. We have been separated for 17 months. After 7 months she asked me to take my daughter. We have agreed to child support but she only pays when she feels like it. I want to petition for child support but what if she wants my daughter back to not pay support? What will the court do?
My daughter visits her mother every other weekend and some days in between but not overnights. My daughter has been in school under my address. We live in NJ, what should I do without losing residential custody. I am afraid that if I petition the court for support she will take her back to not pay. Will the courts see thru this?
