How will child support work, I live in hawaii with 2 kids and the ex lives in texas. Hawaii has residential jurisdiction due to the kids being with me for 6 straight months. The dad has only lived in texas. Will child support only be determined from texas or will jurisdiction fall in hawaii as well? If so cld my attorneys here in hawaii handle texas child support, or wld I have to get an attorney in texas? Or is it up to the judge???
