If the CP still lives in Georgia, the Georgia order remains in tact. The GA CS order can be enforced in the new state. the orders cannot be modified anywhere other than Georgia as long as the CP still lives in Georgia.
So I’ve been divorced for awhile now but I’m confused what to go off of. The child support addendum originally stated that I paid 50% up to $300 per child for homeschool, and I don’t have to repeat payment if my ex decided to hold them back a year. I didn’t know, but my ex marked all this... Read more »

You should work with an attorney who can help you with the child support and getting you more time with your child. In the mean time, save all documentation that you are paying child support, just in case there are any issues that arise. Keep records.
$600 for 2 kids then when my daughter meets the requirements there is no support for her. Then I pay $428 for just my son. Since she moved in with me and it’s supposed to be $600 for 2 kids do I pay my ex any money or since I have a kid living with me and my ex has a kid living with her does it... Read more »

It's possible to subpeona bank records so you can track spending and income. There isn't an easy way to explain the process. You have to issues the subpoenas, give notice to the other side and also know how to get them into evidence.
You should probably hire an attorney to assist you.
If you were not married to the mother, then you have absolutely NO rights whatsoever to the child. You are going to have to file a petition (complaint/lawsuit) in the Superior Court of the county in which the child lives. Only when you do this will you ever have an opportunity to see the child....Read more »
We sent the papers in back in June, but it could take up to 10weeks for his name to officially be added to the birth certificate, can i go ahead & get child support or will i have to wait until his name is officially on the document?
A travel deviation is discretionary. You should consult with an attorney. It is possible that even though your order is 2 years old, the support could increase if your income or the child's expenses have gone up, or if the mother's income has gone down.
You aren't going to get a credit for anything. If the case is reviewed, the child support may go up. There is no way to tell. You should consult an attorney who can run a calculator for you and give you advice about whether you are paying too much based on the income information of both...Read more »

You can pay this way as long as you don't have a court order specifically telling you to pay another way. First, send a dollar to the number and get a text confirmation that she received it. After that confirmation, you can send the full amount knowing she got it. As an extra measure you...Read more »
Have you been ordered supervised visitation by a court? If not, you are not obligated to remain at her house during visitation. Get a copy of your order, call a competent attorney, and then schedule a consultation. I wish you the best!
Your question makes it sound as if you already have the court order. Only Courts (Judges) may sign Orders. Did a judge sign an order for you? I can't think so. If that had happened it would already be filed. So....... you will first need to file an application for citation of contempt and...Read more »
