Child Support

questions & answers

Question: My ex mostly has custody of our four-year-old boy. She quit her job the same week we went to court and then got hired back once child support was determined based on her not working and living with her cousin. Now, her green card has expired. She did receive a temporary extension to March 2015. She received her card through a fraud marriage and lied to immigration about her address, of course all this was found out through court. If she does not get her card renewed can she legally take our son to Mexico and continue to collect child support as she continually threatens to do?

If a parent is planning on moving more than 100 miles away they must let the other parent know within 60 days of the move.  This gives the non moving parent a chance to having a hearing that can address whether the move is permitted.
