Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: My new husband has three children that live out of state and according to the divorce papers from his previous marriage, they share joint custody. After the divorce was final in Indiana, she moved without contacting him about this move. She has not let him know where the kids are for almost six years. He pays child support every month and has no contact with them. How do we go about finding the kids to have contact with them?

Answer: You should really contact an attorney regarding your situation.  Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to your question.  Even general direction cannot be given without the benefit of additional facts.  An attorney can review the situation and give you specific and pointed advice.
