I pay child support regularly and my child’s mother keeps asking me to send her money via money order everyday and I always send her the money but she never lets me visit or spend time with my daughter.
You need to go to court and ask for a parenting plan which will specify when the child is supposed to spend time with you. Then if she refuses you can go back to court and ask the judge for help. You should also have a specific amount of child support to pay each month, not whenever she asks for...Read more »

Any agreements that you make for modification should be in writing and signed by both parents. As long as you are making the child support payments there really isn't any scrutiny.

He received an administrative letter from Tallahassee saying a child support case was opened. That was a few months back, have not heard anything since. He has... Read more »
IMO, at best all your husband can do at this point is to sue in a circuit court seeking determination of paternity. That would be a good place to raise the issue of the mother's marriage--although her being married does not automatically mean that your husband is not the child's father. Before...Read more »

It is possible that the court will take the family health insurance premium and figure out what portion is paid for your children only. It does not...Read more »
