Greetings. Please, for you and everyone else, call me Janet. You should NOT relinquish your custody, but instead file a Motion to Modify Support - which is a form that you can get from child support enforcement. Then, if you pay guideline support from the date of filing the motion, you will be able to maintain your custody! Best of luck.
