We had 50/50 custody of my 2 Skids at which time there was no child support either way and all expenses were to be shared. Recently there was an incident with their mother and we had to file for emergency custody- CPS was involved and my DH has been back and forth to court with mediators etc. We were granted emergency 100% custody until October 29th when the judge will make the final ruling on a more permanent custody arrangement. We've requested initial supervised visitation and if BM can stay sober (she is in a treatment program right now) then gradually increase visitation as the kids get comfortable again with her etc.
My question is- do we have to file separately for child support during the time we have 100% custody. Our immediate concern was getting the kids out of her house so we did not file for it yet. Will she owe for the time we've had them (its been about a month and will continue at least until 10/29). Any help is appreciated.
