THAT WOULD DEPEND ON WHETHER THE AGREEMENT PROVIDED FOR INTEREST TO ACCRUE. HOPEFULLY, YOU USED AN ATTORNEY THROUGH THIS PROCESS SO THAT THE NECESSARY LANGUAGE FOR THIS WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE AGREEMENT.

my daughter lived with my mom age 2-14 but lives with me an has since last year july 2020. her dad pays child support but we dont get it. they keep giving it to her and she dont even speak to my child anymore at all.
Child support has ever been given. My question is if my sons father goes to court, can he get full custody? Also what steps should I be taking in a situation like this for precautions? I’m not even sure who technically has custody as of right now. Him or I.
If there is no court order, you have custody of your child. However, it seems that you have been sharing parenting time with his dad, which is a good thing. A court determines what's in the child's best interest regarding custody. If you have your son more now and the schedule is...Read more »
I filed a petition to change child custody (my ex has primary, I want 50/50 as circumstances have changed). I provided text message screenshots between the two of us that clearly backed up the claims I was making; however, he and his attorney filed a response that said all the screenshots were...

Don't worry about the lawyer says. First, anything you add to the petition isn't considered evidence. In court, you present the evidence to the judge. But send clear copies of your evidence to the attorney ahead of time. Let the judge decide if your evidence is usable or not. But you...Read more »
I filed for Legitimation and 4 days later child support filed an case. so right now i am currently trying to get them decided on one case instead of two cases but i do not have an child support order already. My question is if we (both parents) have agreed to Joint Physical and Joint Legal Custody... Read more »
If you think your child is in harm or danger, then you shouldn't be ok with joint custody. Presenting a custody case is more than just giving the judge a parenting plan, but more about proving why that is in your child's best interest. Speak to an attorney in your area about your options.
I have 6 children. I'm on child support for only one of them due to the mother lying to me about closing the case before the court date. I provide for all children and with this one child support case it's taking away from me providing for my other children as I used to. Does the fact... Read more »
If the CP still lives in Georgia, the Georgia order remains in tact. The GA CS order can be enforced in the new state. the orders cannot be modified anywhere other than Georgia as long as the CP still lives in Georgia.
So I’ve been divorced for awhile now but I’m confused what to go off of. The child support addendum originally stated that I paid 50% up to $300 per child for homeschool, and I don’t have to repeat payment if my ex decided to hold them back a year. I didn’t know, but my ex marked all this... Read more »

You should work with an attorney who can help you with the child support and getting you more time with your child. In the mean time, save all documentation that you are paying child support, just in case there are any issues that arise. Keep records.
$600 for 2 kids then when my daughter meets the requirements there is no support for her. Then I pay $428 for just my son. Since she moved in with me and it’s supposed to be $600 for 2 kids do I pay my ex any money or since I have a kid living with me and my ex has a kid living with her does it... Read more »

It's possible to subpeona bank records so you can track spending and income. There isn't an easy way to explain the process. You have to issues the subpoenas, give notice to the other side and also know how to get them into evidence.
You should probably hire an attorney to assist you.
If you were not married to the mother, then you have absolutely NO rights whatsoever to the child. You are going to have to file a petition (complaint/lawsuit) in the Superior Court of the county in which the child lives. Only when you do this will you ever have an opportunity to see the child....Read more »
