I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "custodianship," but child support obligations end when the child has BOTH turned 18 and graduated. If still in secondary school, the obligation can continue until age 20.
She states to me weather she takes one or not or passes or not it dont matter cause I can't take them because I only have joint legal custody. What can I do? Parenting time is supposed to stop until a clean test is provided but law enforcement can't help they say because she is custodial
Does the custody agreement include an order for parenting time? If not, what is the purpose of the drug-test provision? Does the agreement set forth penalties for failing to pass a test (in general, failure to take a test is treated the same as failing to pass)?
By "separated," I assume you mean living apart, not legally separated. If you are married, you will both need to sign to transfer ownership of the house. You can refuse to sign unless you get a portion of the proceeds. I would contact the closing company and make them aware that you...Read more »

It is difficult to say what you can do without knowing more. Were you married? If so, are you divorced? You say that you are "supposed to have" custody. Is there a divorce decree or other court order that sets forth the parenting time you each get? If so, you can go to court to...Read more »
It sounds like a custody motion. You can certainly oppose that.
If you are sure that you have never been served, then the case is not properly before the court. If, however, you have been served, you will need to make an appearance or the court can rule against you by default. If you...Read more »
Now with having joint legal custody of 9 yr old son and his case manager and therapist never meeting me in person and solely going on the words of my angry ex-wife towards me and being very unprofessional and bias toward me. Do I have the right to take them both off my son's case? since I... Read more »
If you have joint legal custody, you have equal say in determining medical/psychiatric treatment. You should have been consulted prior to starting therapy. You should raise to the court the fact that you weren’t and can then ask that they be removed for bias or other reasons.
he tells me and asks me questions that no 9 yr old should know about or be told such as at his last appointment his therapist called him into room asking what we talk about on visits and phone calls so she knows what to say in court and his case manager talking to his mom in front of him saying...

You will likely want/need a transcript of the recording if it is to be presented to the court. For now, highlighting the conversation and noting that the entire conversation is available for the court may suffice. Note that court's generally dislike parents involving the children in disputes...Read more »

you cannot stop making payments unless the court modifies the child support order. You would need to go to court and ask first that parenting time be modified to reflect the actual situation, and then ask that support be modified per the new schedule. If mom voluntarily quit, income can be...Read more »

Normally, you can look up cases online, however, if this is a paternity case it would not show up. If it is a divorce, then it would. If your step son is seeking official parenting time, then yes, the living arrangement would help your case. That said, there are many variables involved.
If a father has been ordered to pay child support, that would indicate that he was either married to the mother or adjudicated the father. Presumption of paternity would no longer apply unless another man is challenging the paternity.
I have a son who's gonna be 15 in July, and a daughter who is 10, with one woman. After we separated, we managed to agree to visitation, and custody, without going to court. She has had physical custody of both of them for the last few years. During that time I had another daughter who just... Read more »
Termination of rights to one child does not terminate rights to other children.
