You need to file to terminate the child support that you were paying to mom and you need to file to establish child support for mom to pay you. They will not address child support in a custody hearing unless you also filed for child support.
Consult a lawyer about this. It depends on when the child support order was entered, if the arrests or any part of the arrears was reduced to a monetary judgment, and how long it has been since the order and/or judgment has been entered. Generally, court orders for child support remain active...Read more »

Your father can file to modify custody. He does not need your mother's permission to do so. Also in the state of Maryland, you can petition the court in your own right to modify YOUR custody. If your sister is under 16, she cannot do it herself.
We have shared custody 50/50, but the monthly child support I pay is significant. Should this be calculated on her earning potential instead of her actual since she chooses to work part time and is using my child support her?
My daughter has been under my sole care until she was 4 months old, but due to an abusive situation at my parents, we had to move in with her father( the only other person we know in Maryland.)

If there is a current child support order, file to terminate immediately. It will not happen unless you file. The Mother probably will not. If it is going through child support enforcement they do not keep track of the age of the children and modify it for you. You must act.
