Q: My daughter was born in Florida her mom moved to Alabama, I pay her atleast 300 monthly she won't allow me to see her
A: The first question in cases like this is "what court will hear your request for visitation." You don't say if there is a court order establishing paternity and ordering child support. That is important. If the child is an Alabama resident, Alabama may be the right court. Or, if the child and mother have not been here long enough to establish residence, then the Court if Florida (did a Florida court enter any order) might be the right place.
Sounds confusing, doesn't it!
Happily, there are a set of laws, called the Uniform Child Custody Judicial Enforcement Act(s) (UCCJEA) which set out how this works. You need to contact an attorney in the county in Alabama where the child lives, provide some facts and get a game plan on establishing paternity, parenting time and child support. In what county does the child live?
