Re: Child Sopport
First, is the child support order from Virginia or New York?
Second, if the child support order is from New York, you must go back to Family Court now for your son and right after you get your daughter to change the child support order or you will be responsible for paying child support to your child's mother until they are 21 years old.
Third, if the order is from Virginia, you will need a copy of the order and it would be best to get an attorney in Virginia to change the order in Virginia or you can try to get a court in New York to entertain a petition to modify it here.
If I can be of any further assistance or if you would like a free consultation you can contact my office at 516.746.4747 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
