If my son's mother no longer has custody of my son and I don't have custody do I still have to keep paying child support?

Q: My son's mother lost custody of my son and I don't have custody is it mandatory for me to keep paying child support. I'm confused.

Can a father (ncp) try for primary custody if he doesn't have the means for it?

Q: My friend has an ex who wants to try to get primary custody. The child is almost 4 years old and has always lived with the mother. The ex doesnt make as much money as the mother, he is always broke, and has no bedroom or things for the child. He also wants to pull the child out of her preschool so that he doesn't need to pay the tution. He lives in the bronx and the mother lives in queens. He lives with his gf and their new baby. But she is the breadwinner. He was just placed on child support and it was more then he expected. He wants to try to get primary custody so as to get off of child support. Would he be able to get primary custody if the mother is a good mom and the child lives in a good area, in a nice apartment and has her own bedroom and things. The child is attached to both parents. If he can't get primary and he tries for joint, If he gets granted 50-50 physical custody would he still have to pay full child support to the mother in New York State?

Can I get the custody order modified?

Q: My ex-husband has custody of our 4-year-old son. However, since the order went into effect December 9th, 2017, he works two jobs and has no real time with our son. Our son is either with his girlfriend, other family members or in school. I get three weekends out of the month for visits, every Thursday 8pm to Sunday 2pm I want joint custody or sole custody, if possible, whereas he could legally physically live with me and his two sisters and my ex would actually have more time with him if we just gave him those three weekends a month but starting from Friday to Sunday due to school scheduling and such. We communicate failry well, well enough at least but he isnt being cooperative regarding information about our son and it's a bit childish. He misses his sisters, my daughters, and it would be in his best interest to be with them and to be taken care of by his parent and not pawned off on others. Is this real sufficient? Also, I've recently gotten into a 3 bedroom apartment via voucher, I'm on public assistance and I'm in school full-time during the day and I'm out before they get out of school.

What are the chances I will be granted sole custody of my son?

Q: His father has not been active in his life, my son will be a year old soon. I finally got his father to agree to a visitation schedule we created outside of court but he constantly no shows or cancels at the last minute. All of our communication is kept via text due to his verbally and emotionally abuse behavior. He refuses to check on his son at all, even through text. He does send money monthly, but he is just not a present factor in our sons life. He has a child from a previous relationship with an ex that is very volatile and they tend to include the 5 yr old in their arguments. He doesn't understand the damage it is causing the child and tends to blame me still for our relationship ending after almost a year. I'm wondering what my chances are in receiving sole physical and legal custody. I would be willing to allow supervised visitations. Would the emotional and physical abuse play a part in the outcome as well?

Do I have a stronger chance of getting custody? Full or joint?

Q: My daughter's father and I are unmarried and splitting up. We both reside in NY and he is threatening to take her away from me to hurt me. She gets babysat by his sister, whom I pay, while I go to school in the mornings to finish my degree. I work as well as a real estate agent from home, so I am mostly with her. When together, he would only sleep all day and party all night. He does drugs and drinks and comes home around 5-7am. He doesn't work. He is also violent to me and I have a couple pictures and medical documents stored away. The last argument we had, I was cooking and had a knife in my hand and he smashed my phone and as I was asking him why he did that, he took a picture of me with the knife in my hand and my daughter in the picture watching tv. He is threatening to show it if I take him to court to protect himself. I am always with my daughter and taking care of her, but worry that this can affect my chances. Help
