Las Vegas, NV asked in Child Custody, Child Support and Family Law for New York

Q: Is it illegal for my childs mother to have received support when she didnt have custody if my child?

Court case was opened requesting custody by childs great grandparents. In the court filing it was listed as my childs residence with them since 2016 when CPS removed the child from the mothers custody without any attempt to communicate this with me. Have been charged and paid support to a completely different county than the county where the new proceeding is being held. Seems to me I have some serious issues I need legal help with as they gave false information to CPS and the courts to obtain an emergency custody order in their favor.
