Little history on her mother her mother is all about money and she has been trying to have my fiancee to go against me and child support against me. Can grandparent file child support against me?

A: No – only the proper custodial parent can generally file for custody. Thus, if she doesn’t have at east joint custody of the child, then she may not be allowed to file. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
