Need some serious help here
Husband agreed to let SD14 go live with BM. Plan was for her to start new school today (Thursday, 1/24). But SD is still at our house, and there was a notice on our door last night that the sheriff's department is looking for my husband. We think they want to serve him with court papers.
To make a long story short, BM moved an hour away when SD was 11 and left her with us. We have had primary custody for 3y9mo. But BM wouldn't sign any papers to that effect. To be amicable, we didn't pursue child support. Now, if SD is going to live with her, BM wants child support.
1. Has anyone successfully fought child support when custody is joint (equal), as it is now?
2. Can we file for retroactive child support for the past almost 4 years?
I do NOT want to pay child support! We were SD's sole support for all her life (BM wouldn't even pay for school lunches, let alone activities, school supplies, etc.) We have paid for everything, and husband has been out of work for nearly two years during that time.
BM has some nerve! I think she is not taking SD (who is still here and should have started her new school today) because she wants child support.
