As an experienced Rochester Child Support Attorney, I am often asked how to file for support when your ex lives in another state.
- When a boyfriend, girlfriend, or former spouse has moved to another state – and the custodial parent wants to receive child support – the parent who desires child support must file an application or petition in family court.
- The petition is filed in the county where the child lives.
- The other party will be served with the petition and the application for child support will be heard by a judge who will enter an order setting forth the terms and amount of child support.
