This depends on whether you have a court-ordered/approved parenting plan. If so, you should comply with its terms. If there are no court orders on the matter, either parent is entitled to time with the child in state. If there is no agreement, you should probably not do it. It is hard to predict...Read more »

Child support for your 19-year-old child should end when he turned 19, assuming he has graduated from high school. His being in college should not matter. However, it appears you have another child. So, child support should be re-calculated with the current incomes and time-sharing factors. You...Read more »
I have started the child support process without a court ordered child custody agreement?

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT IDEA. FILING A PATERNITY SUIT WILL ENABLE YOU TO ESTABLISH A PARENT - CHILD RELATIONSHIP. YOU MAY OBTAIN CERTAIN VISITATION RIGHTS IF THAT IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILD. UNDERSTAND THAT THIS MAY ALSO RESULT IN A CHILD SUPPORT OBLIGATION BEING ESTABLISHED AGAINST YOU. YOU...Read more »

Assuming your case is still in Iowa, you should get an attorney there. A new attorney is going to have to spend some time reviewing the prior filings. However, it may not be necessary to read every one. It depends on whether the old filings have anything to do with the current issues. However, some...Read more »
I do not know what you mean by "malicious parenting syndrome". However, you may be able to defend the claim for arrears if she in fact filed for it falsely. You can also insist on compliance with the Parenting Plan so she does not withhold the children. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.

If he would like parenting time, then he can file an action for Allocation of Parental Responsibilities with a district court. This will allow a court order to issue that will set forth the responsibilities and parenting time and allow him to enforce the order if she does not comply.

There is no "bright line" rule. It depends on the circumstances. Generally shared parenting may not work well for children whose parent's live in different school districts. While time with both parents is important, it is not beneficial to children to spend a large amount of time driving between...Read more »
You could potentially file for an emergency restriction of parenting time depending on your evidence. If you believe based on credible evidence that abuse is occurring you can also make a report to the Department of Human Services.
We attended mediation and weren't able to resolve anything because I feel strongly that more time with his father would not be in our son's best interest (he is an admitted abuser and alcoholic). Since then, I have found another 50/50 plan that I would consider trying, but he won't hear it because... Read more »
In a case like this, you should consider requesting appointment of a CFI (Child and Family investigator) or a PRE (Parental Responsibility Evaluator).
