Currently there is a support order in Virginia for my daughter where she lived per our joint custody agreement. Recently she has moved to Raleigh, enrolled in school, and the previous custodial parent agrees with the action.
Only one month has passed.
Since my daughter now resides in NC can I file for support and custody modifications in a NC court? I understand that there is a reciprocity of sorts with the family courts regarding support and custody. I am greatly concerned about the added expense, loss of income from traveling to/from VA for any court dates as money is very tight. I am now supporting my teenage daughter and I am still remitting support via payroll garnishment to the VA parent.
To further complicate matters I am separated for 8 months from my second spouse. I have 50/50 custody with no support order in place. Can I file something to establish a support and spousal support order during our separation as well?
Is this at all possible?
- Get support and custody mod on a VA order in a NC court.
- Get a support and spousal support order in place while separated when neither party can agree to any amounts?
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
