Hello, I live in New Jersey and my ex wife lives in Pennsylvania. Our daughter lives with her grandparents only in Pennsylvania and the grandparents even though I have been contributing money for my daughter are planning on filing for child support. I am wondering how this would work.
I am remarried. Would my new wife's income be counted in how much the court orders for support? Would my ex-wife's parents also need to file for support from my ex-wife if they file for support from me? What state's child support laws have jurisdiction in calculating child support payments since I live in N.J. and my daughter in P.A.? Would I need to travel for support hearings in P.A., could I attend by telephone or would the support petition be filed in P.A. than transferred to N.J. for hearings and decisions for my part of the support?
