Regina Irene Edwards' answer There is no easy way to explain the process of domesticating. First, you must obtain 3 copies of your Michigan order(s). Then contact an attorney to process the domestication to make sure it is done correctly.

Regina Irene Edwards' answer If the court order wasn't changed, he owes her the full child support. He needs to start making payments and exhaust all efforts to pay the money he owes. He also needs to hire an attorney and file for the modification to stop the payments, have her pay him and to change custody.

Regina Irene Edwards' answer Each case is different. This is impossible to answer without more facts. He may say you prevented him from being more involved.
