I live in California, and have a court order for child support payments to my two autistic children in North Carolina about 12 years ago. Over the past year, my ex lost custody of both of them through the actions of child protective services–her uncle became the guardian of the older child, who turned 18 and completed high school last year and is now living in a group home and working. The younger one was placed in a group home in a different county, and to the best of my knowledge the state of NC is his legal guardian. He has just turned 18, but I’m not sure of his high school status.
In the meantime, I was laid off from my job and have gone into arrears on my CS payments. Is there an economical way to file a motion from out of state to have my support obligation terminated? It’s a bit complicated, since my ex wife no longer has custody or guardianship.
