I have physical custody of our 3 children and was recently laid off from my job. Our custody order requires meeting halfway for visitations because we live in two different states. The NCP lives in NC. I do not receive regular child support, even though I have been trying for a year to work with the two states to establish an order for support, but absolutely nothing has been done. Both agencies seem to have no clue on how to proceed and who has jurisdiction.
That being said, it costs me over $200 in gas to meet for visitation. I don’t even know if I can make rent and pay the electric bill next month, let alone come up with $200 to drive up for Thanksgiving visitation and then again at Christmas. My ex does not care that the kids and I may have no place to live next month. Is there a way to seek temporary modification of the visitation schedule outlined in the custody order until such time as I get employment? Would the court even consider that? The order was established in NC.
