Can a parent that is behind in child support get joint custody of a child whos mother already has full legal custody?
Certainly some evidence of responsibility (ie paying child support, job, time spent with the child) would help your case.

You can't. If there has been a change in the custody order you are still responsible for any arrears incurred while the other parent had legal custody. Your garnishment will not be returned to you since it was imposed for money you owed. You owe those arrears until they are paid in full regardless of the change in custody.

Second, if the father does voluntarily give up his parenting rights, or a judge does involuntarily remove his parenting rights (or awards full custody to the…
