Q: Originally the child support was decided in the Westchester Family Court NY. Later the physical and legal custody of the child was given to mother of the child who decided to move to CT state and thereafter leaves for India. Now to move for modification of child support, which will be the appropriate court? Whether westchester or court in CT?
A: David’s Answer: If you remain living in New York – and more particularly Westchester County, then you would file any modification case in Westchester. NY & Westchester retain continuing & exclusive jurisdiction for modification/enforcement matters so long as 1 parent remains living there. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
