There is no court-ordered custody agreement but the father does pay child support and the child is with the mother more than 50 percent of the time. Does the father still have the same custodial rights as the mother?
Since the child support order was issued over 4 years ago, he has only made 4 payments. In our divorce decree (which he did not show up to court to sign - but after so many times being postponed, the judge granted my divorce) he does not have any visitation rights to my children and it is stated...

My child's father is wishy washy. He is a dad when it's convenient and its hard to get state mandated child support from him.

Hire an attorney to draft and file a Consent Judgment and then serve Support Enforcement. Until you do this correctly he will still be liable to pay child support. You will not be refunded for any child support paid until this is done correctly.

I don't know how many years your time with your child has been dictated by the mother. Hire a custody attorney to get guaranteed time with your child. Create a text or email record of regularly requesting more time.
I never knew she moved him out of state until i was able to pick him so I had my mother to call her because we don’t get alone so she stated to my mother that I knew that she moved but that’s a total lie because I never signed any papers with us having joint custody..what should I do?
If she removed the child from Louisiana, she would have had to comply with the relocation statute. She should have notified you of the proposed move before it occurred. If she didn't, you have the right to file contesting the move. A family law/custody attorney can help you with this.
