Just a quick question. My son lives with his dad right now and when he went to live there there was no child support ordered. My ex owed money in child support so we decided to do an order of $50 a month to come off the arrears my ex owed. Things have changed, and my ex isnt really taking care of our son and were about to go back to court to get my son back. My ex wont just give him back. We have been getting along except this one issue, and now he wants me to pay him the $50 a month. I am fine with that. In our current order though there is nothing saying how I am supposed to pay but everyone I know says I shouldnt just send him a check every month. I also dont want to get into any trouble with the law you know? Do I go to the child support office and pay them there? Do I just wait and go back to court since our case is being filed for a change in custody? I really am not sure how to go about this.
I normally wouldnt make an issue of custody or support for the record. But my son isnt being taken care of. My husband and I have bought 100% of his clothes. He has multiple tardies. Has been moved once this year and ex told me he plans to move again and far from us. He has also introduced a new gf he met online who I dont get the best vibe from. He had been in a long term relationship before and Im not too keen on him having overnights with random women with my son there. My son was sent to school in my ex husbands shirt once, sent to me with ticks over the summer, and always has dirty socks. I have begged and asked my ex to just give him back but he wont. I already paid our lawyer, but hate family court. I dont want to start more drama then I need to.
What should I do?

Next question overall
Do you think is normal for a man to be emotional or too sensitive at times?
