My husband and his ex wife’s divorce/child support order was through Missouri. Neither party lives in that state any longer. She just modified the amount through Missouri while living in Alabama does that need to change to her current state or does it matter?
Thanks for your question! I am not familiar with Missouri laws, but generally, a court retains jurisdiction until it is either lost or transferred. Thus, it is possible for your husband's ex-wife to modify the amount of child support even though she lives in Alabama. Hope that helps!...Read more »

He has 2 other children he currently pays child support for and has sent me text messages saying if I do take him to child support he will make sure I look like a bad person to the point that I lose my job. I feel like he just doesn't want the financial responsibility.
I would suggest that you hire a family law attorney so the attorney can represent your interests and better understand your situation. The mere fact that you are pregnant with twins would not generally be a reason for a judge to award 50-50 custody.

You will need to file a Motion to Modify in the Court that issued the child support Order in the first place to vacate the Order requiring you to pay child support. From what you describe, you may be able to terminated the abandoning mother's parental rights.

Depends. With the ex-boyfrien on the birth cerificate, there is a presumption he is the father; it is not conclusive evidence, but certainly compelling. Yhe amount of time that has transpired and the circumstances are a little suspect. Nevertheless, if you voluntarily submitted to a paternity test...Read more »

Yes. But you will need an attorney to do so. You may be able to use the state or county attorneys who manage cases for child support services in your state. However, that process is slow. A family law attorney can help you accomplish your goal much more efficiently.
Try calling the AG's office to let them know your child aged out. You may have to file a motion and have the judge sign an order terminating withholding (I am assuming child support is being withheld from your paychecks).
My husband and I have tried our best to co parent with my stepdaughter’s mother. It is impossible to try to parent with her..we disagree on many things and she always wants to act like the superior parent. She always wants things her way and there’s Is no way we can talk to her about parenting... Read more »
A parenting facilitator can help resolve issues regarding the child. I have seen parenting facilitators help in very high conflict cases/situations. However, parenting facilitators can be expensive as well for both parties.
Child support judgement was reduced to half 27000 and was included in my bankruptcy filing and was paid off in 2006. Then the Child support office refiled for the original amount and tacked interest onto the original amount. The CS office refuses to acknowledge the bankruptcy agreement and more... Read more »
Child support payments generally cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. This means that a parent who owes child support cannot escape this duty by filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcies do not act as a stay, or hold, on actions to modify child support obligations. Since you state that the child support...Read more »
He did not tell me when the court date was so obviously he was granted everything he asked for. Which included taking my child support away and asking me to pay $100 a month. But about 3 weeks later he turned around and gave me back my child for me to care for a full time. He's going against... Read more »
The father doesn't have to tell you the court date because when you were served with the lawsuit, there should have been a notice of hearing telling you where, when and what time the case was set for a hearing. So you should have known when the court date was because it should have been right...Read more »
