Now my court appointed lawyer withdrew. And told me I need to file a " entry of appearance". How do I do this, and where do I fie it. And what is it for.? I'm so lost and need help before I loose my parental rights to my son. It was a default judgement I was late for court.
It is not possible to teach you everything that you need to know to handle the case over the internet. You really need to hire an attorney right now and see if they can help you set aside the default. Act quickly!!!

Visitation has nothing to do with child support. Support is still owed whether or not there has been visitation. You should consult with an attorney and see if a modification of support might help you. I wish you the best of luck.

You don't need forms, you need an attorney. A child custody case is not a DIY project. If you are in Georgia and need an attorney in Oklahoma, contact some attorneys until you find one you want to work with. Many will do a consultation with you over the phone.
