What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Montana/Missouri
My ex wife, despite sharing joint custody with me and disobeying our parenting plan, has allowed our 16 year old daughter to move in with her 19 year old boyfriend in a neighboring town. They are hiding this from me but our daughter as well as her mother aren't very smart about the information they post publicly online so I just found out.
Our daughter also was allowed to drop out of high school which is illegal at her age in Missouri where they live but no one will do anything about it so Im in process of taking her to court for contempt, a switch in custody, and asking her to be charged with educational neglect.
In the rare event that my ex wife continues getting away with murder and I do not get my way, I am wondering if I can request child support be stop for our daughter?
The child support order is based in Montana but my daughter is lives in Missouri during the school year.
If I don't get custody, I have read that in Missouri a child is allowed to move out at 17, which she surely will if still living there and if not forced to go to school by the courts-will surely drop out again....She is not a mature child, drinking, doing drugs ect
So if this scenario happens, can I ask the child support be stopped?
Please don't be rude in comments; I have been there and am there for her, I have always paid support on time, paid everything she has ever needed extra or wanted. I will continue to do so and would prefer paying support as apposed to our daughter ruining her life. I am paying thousands in attorney fees to try to ensure her future and fix what has been allowed to happen.
I am just curious because if her and her mother want to hide things from me and not talk to me as long as she is getting what she wants, I don't feel like I should contribute to her delinquency not that her mother would give her any of the money anyway.
