New Jersey divorce lawyerQuestion:

I continue to live in the state where my divorce took place and pay child support according to that state's child support laws.

My child and his mother live in another state where my payments are sent. According to that state's laws, my child would be considered emancipated because it has a lower age of majority.

Will I have to continue to pay under the child support emancipation laws of the state I reside in or should he be considered emancipated under the laws of the state where he now lives?

georgia divorce lawyerQuestion:

Can I reduce my payments through a child support modification given that I am responsible for paying my children's transportation expenses?

Since my ex-wife and I live far away from each other, in order to exercise my court-ordered visitation I have to pay the cost to fly my children to see me. Obviously, this gets very expensive.

Can I modify child support based on those extra expenses I have to incur?

georgia divorce lawyerQuestion:

I currently pay child support according to a marital separation agreement with my ex-wife. 

We both have moved out of the state where the order was issues, and now she wants to increase my child support payments by filing for a modification in her new state, which apparently requires non-custodial parents to pay more.

Which state has the jurisdiction to modify the child support order if neither party lives in the state that originally issued the order?

St. Louis divorce lawyerQuestion:

My child support payments ended several months ago when my 18-year-old child was considered emancipated by the state the original order was issued in.

However, my ex-wife and child now live in another state where the child support age of emancipation is 21, and she is threatening to take me back to court to have a new support order entered until our child turns 21.

Can she do that even if my child support orders were already fulfilled by the issuing state?

New Jersey divorce lawyerQuestion:

Per a court order, I pay child support directly to my ex-wife and not through the courts. My daughter turns 18 next month, which is my state's age of emancipation.

Since my payments do not go through the state, can I simply cease paying my ex once my daughter turns 18 or do I have to file a child support termination form with the court?
