Best Answer

Yes. Child custody is decided on what's best for the child. So if its best for the child to go with him/her, then that is what the judge will decide. * It's possible, but the non custodial parent will still have to be notified of the proceedings and given the opportunity to object to the act. Considering the cited circumstances that hardly seems fair, but it is, in the US the law.

My childs mother has custody I am paying my child support but the mother won't let me see my child- what can I do?

You should visit the court immediately and file a motion for contempt. If the custodial parent is violating the visitation order then they are in contempt of a court order. If the violation continues they could lose custody. The court will schedule a hearing on the motion for contempt and the custodial parent will be required to appear and explain their actions. If you don't already have a visitation order in place then request one from the court as soon as possible.
