What can I do, if I feel that my girlfriend's ex husband is telling lies about me in court, when this has nothing to do with me?

Q: Child custody case is happening between my girlfriend and her ex husband, who in fact is nothing to those kids. Anyways, he had called CPS and it was unfounded. In the CPS case it was mentioned that I smoke weed and offered it to one of the kids. Now I just read the paper his lawyer had written to the courts where he stated I am a current or former drug addict. I had taken a drug test for CPS cause there was nothing to hide, but now this is going to far that he is now telling lies in court and mentioning me with these statements and getting kids involved with these lies as well. What can I do or should I do?

I have a second hearing for a custody case. I refused a lawyer the first time. Will she ask me again if I want a lawyer?

Does my Order of Protection (I was defendant) and So Ordered Divorce allow contact with my ex-wife?

Q: My daughter's school is holding an annual special education review meeting, which I'm invited to. Can I attend if my ex-wife is there? The order of protection states: "Contact regarding visitation permitted if permitted by other court order." The So Ordered divorce Stipulation of Settlement states: Both parties shall be entitled to attend all public events for the Child, including but not limited to ceremonies, plays, performances, concerts, graduations and games. The party who does not have parenting time shall be entitled to greet the Child and take photos with the Child at the event. Both parents can be present at parent-related events for the Child (e.g., school or religious). 

How can I go about reducing my child support amount?

Q: Me and my x wife agreed to the child support amount and in our agreement, but now I have unexpected expenses like I had to get a new car cause my 2006 car finally gave out, so I have car payments. We split all extracurricular activities and schooling 50/50, I feel I'm paying to much still with me paying have for our daughters extracurricular activities. Our divorce agreement was finalized in 2018. I'm financially struggling and dealing with a VERY unpleasant co parent to say the least.

Can I do anything about my ex's employer not submitting child support payments?

Q: I have a court order stating I am suppose to receive $300 weekly. He gets paid bi weekly and I they started sending me payments biweekly. Which I am ok with. But now payments are not coming in as frequent. I never know when I'm getting my child support money. The last 2 checks I received because I called child support and filed a complaint but it's going on 3 weeks and I still have no child support payments. I have asked my sons father if he can talk to his HR dept but he says they take the money out of his check and me not getting the money is not his problem. What can I do?

Visitation

Q: My ex husband and I have a visitation agreement in which he has our son every other weekend. I was granted sole legal and physical custody of our child in our divorce. My ex husband recently moved to new jersey into his girlfriends home and he does not wish to provide me an address as to where my son is going to be staying on the weekends that he has him. He also is not allowing that I speak or meet the girlfriend prior to my son staying there on the weekends. Can I stop him from taking our son on his weekends if he chooses not to provide me with an address? Or even allow me to know who is going to be around our child? What should I do?
