What to do if my child’s mother failed to keep an agreement to have me removed from child supprot?

The agreement was that she would remove me from child support and return all payments received back to me. My son came to live with me over 3 months ago. As to date I have not not been removed from child support, have not received any of my child support payments back, and not received any financial support at all. I live in My son’s mother and I made a deal that I would keep him this school year while she rehabilitates herself from having a another baby. What can I do? What would be the best plan of action for me?

I suggets that you prepare a child support modifivcation agreement and order (or have a family law attorney do such for you) and send it to your child's mother for signature and return.

If she fails to date, sign and return it to you in a reasaonable time period, your legal options seem to be to file a petition with the court seeking to modify the current child support order that you are under for the reasons stated in your question.
