Can you get custody of your 18-year-old daughter if she is a senior in high school and lives with her boyfriend and if not do you have to continue to pay child support and who do you need to pay?

Your daughter is no longer a minor so custody or child support is no longer an issue unless the courts have adjusted this in their recommendations, such as: You have to pay child support for your daughter's education. Then you must! As you know education doesn't come cheap so most women can't afford to pay for their kids education. I suggest you see a lawyer and go over the conditions that were met when you divorced. If your daughter is working or her boyfriend is working and all you need to do is pay for her education you may just be able to squeak out of it. In addition never, ever arbitrarily cease court order child support payments. A person taking such action can face a contempt citation which can further complicate the issue. It should also be noted that the age of 18 is not necessarily the legal age of majority or the age that was stipulated in the original support agreement. Four states have a higher age of majority than 18, in Alabama and Nebraska the age is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21.

A mother of a son or daughter who is not caring properly for their child may get custody of the child. This would be determined by a judge when the parent is not fit to continue to parent.

Take her to court. File for custody or joint custody or visitation rights.

Yes. Switching guardians has nothing to do with the restraining order. It will remain there until it is cancelled.

Unless their is custody involved the girl's father is able to take her and not give her back. If their is custody involved and he takes the girl and won't give her back then that would be considered kidnapping.

yes if you have full custody you dont have to consult your ex.

I assume that the "ex-boyfriend" is also the father of the child. If you believe that he lied to gain custody, you can file a motion/petition for a custody re-hearing and be prepared to demonstrate that he lied, and that you are a 'fit' mother to have custody of the child.

He's using the daughter as a pawn. This is a ploy. Continue with the divorce... tell the lawyer you need an iron clad custody and visitation schedule NOW.

If your boyfriend has custody of the daughter and needs her mother's help and she has come from out of town, then it's acceptable for them both to work together during this difficult time for the sake of their daughter. This is something you are going to have to accept. However, you do have the right to ask him where this leaves you in his life. Phone him, meet with him somewhere so you can sort this out. Good luck!

that depends on if the mother has custody over her daughter or not. It also depends on how old the daughter is. If she is under the legal age limit, then the mother is still responsible and makes all decisions for her. If the mother does not have full custody over the daughter, then the mother and the father of that child must come to an agreement on the living whereabouts of the daughter. If the mother has legal custody over the daughter and the daughter is not of legal age yet, then yes, the mother can bring the daughter over too.

For 1) are you in custody of your daughter? If you are in full custody you could take her to court for kidnapping is your EX mother in law in custody of your daughter? Do you have joint custody? If your ex mother in law has no custody over your daughter you could take her to court, she is not authorized to take care of your child.

It isn't automatic, but because of your living arrangement and association with a known criminal it certainly could be grounds for filing a motion to re-open the custody arrangement.
