This was posted previously and answered. The process hasn't changed. If you are asking how much this matter will cost it would be difficult for any attorney to give you a figure as it all depends on how much time will be spent on the case and if there will need to be a trial.
More information would be needed to give a more informed answer. However, if you are talking about primary physical custody (where the child lives) that depends on where and with whom the child has been living, who has been the primary caretaker and some other things. You need to speak to an...Read more »

The courts will not issue an order of protection under these circumstances. As to withholding the children you can do that but be aware that you are in violation of a court order and it would be up to a court to decide if you had a reasonable excuse for violating the order.

Without more information it is hard to give an answer. However, if the children lived with the father and she did not pay support at that time she is in "arrears" and owes back money so there would be a garnishment, the same is true if there is an order of support that was never changed.

If the baby was born in Mexico, you cannot be forced to move back to NY. You also do not have to come back to sign any divorce papers. You should speak with an attorney about the divorce or ask the judge who has your case in the supreme court to appoint an attorney to represent you on custody and...Read more »

Child support ends at 21. The court does not have the power to extend support beyond 21. The court however can enforce agreements that provide for support or college and even graduate school beyond 21 only if it was agreed to in WRITING.
