Is it legal for child support cases to be opened in three States?

Q: I have three opened cases in NY, NJ and NC with the same pertinent information. I owe no arrears in NY but it appears I owe arrears in NJ and in NC. Is this Family Court negligence?

A: It depends on whether child support is merely opened via Support Collection Unit, or whether you have 3 separate court orders. There should only be 1 court order outstanding at a time, though same can theoretically be enforced in multiple jurisdictions. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
