My question involves child support in the State of: Florida?
My ex took our daughter out of state while I was at work about 2 years ago. I couldn't afford an attorney at the time, so we made a verbal agreement. Yes it was very hard for me to accept, but she wouldn't return and I couldn't make her without spending an arm and a leg to get an attourney. I would pay child support as long as I was able to see her. She followed along with it, until I decided to start a new family. I now have a fiance and a 6 month old son. My ex and daughter have lived in Conneticut, moving between her parents house and her on again off again boyfriends house. I fly up to get her and fly back, having to purchase 4 round trip tickets, which is costing me well over 1000 dollars each time. I am tired of having to deal with my ex. I have no control, and am filing with the courts in the next few months. My questions are, will they go by Florida laws, as I live here and they once lived here? Or Conneticut laws? Which is where they have been residing for the past 2 and half years? Also she makes double the amount I make and lives with her parents or boyfriend (its different every month) How does the support work? I want to be able to see my daughter a lot more and have a set schedule! And minimize her nagging for more money each month! Any advice would be great!!
