I would need more information to answer your question. If you are saying that the judge signed an order after entering a recusal order, you may want to file a motion to set aside that order. However, it just depends on what that order entails. Talk to counsel to discuss the specifics of the case.
I'm moving out of my mom's house because of financial reasons. She can no longer support me while I finish high school so I'm moving in with family friends that can.

I don't know what your question is, but I doubt that the person fostering your child is the reason the child is in foster care. You need to consult with local counsel about representation to get your child back.
The CP met the NCP in TN with the child to live with NCP but when NCP asked CP to stop child support the CP called the school where NCP enrolled child and reported child kidnapped and cane and got the child from Kentucky and took the child to live with grandparents.
First, is this a Georgia case? If so, you can contact counsel about modifying custody. What is excessive is up to you. If you could agree that you'd take the child, it could be uncontested, but it doesn't sound like that is likely if she won't agree to stop support.

Why can’t it work vise Versa? What if I don’t want to see him occasionally as well? Can I just send an email to his mom letting her know? Just as she sends me emails saying he is unavailable or he just wants to stay home.
Not necessarily. If you've sat on your rights and not done anything about the issue for a period of time, the court may find that it is barred by the doctrine of laches, which is similar to a statute of limitations, though there is no specific time period.
My wife and I have lived in separate states for a couple of years and my kids have been living with *me* for the last year. She filled for divorce in her state of Georgia about 3 months ago.

Terminating your parental rights is not an option. That will only happen in a step-parent adoption. It doesn't sound like you are exercising the rights you have, so they may as well be terminated. Also, and more importantly, terminating your parental rights does not terminate your obligation to...Read more »
It's your decision, and is really a matter of convenience to a degree. If he is military, he has a state that is listed as his home state. You can file there as well as here, or you can wait until he obtains residency elsewhere and file there. It really just depends on where each of you are...Read more »

If the child has not graduated from high school, you still need to pay. It is not terminated until the child is no longer enrolled full time. Dual enrollment means the child is enrolled in high school and college at the same time.

There is no way for someone to know that without knowing more about your case. It is possible you overpaid and it was improperly withheld. You need to be the one to keep track of what you owe.
