Father Seeking Visitation
I am an out of state parent who has been paying child support for my 15 year old daughter and have never allowed visitation with this child. The mother moves around a lot and I have found it impossible to track this woman down. Four years ago while my daughter was living with her grandmother, the grandmother and I came to an agreement of visitation before the court and the County Attorney. This agreement was never honored. I recently received a notice from the State of North Carolina stating that they intend to increase my support amount. I don't feel that this is fair since I do not have visitation. It's my right to file a motion with the court if I don't agree with the increase. My questions are will the mother be required to appear in court. If I don't have an address for her when I file this motion, can I still file it? If the mother doesn't show up for court, what do I do then because it is my belief that the mother doesn’t want to appear in court for some reason. I would like to have her served and challenge her custody of my daughter at this time. I have tried in the past to have this done but could never get a valid address for her to file the paperwork.
