My daughter is having problems with her daughter's father. He is always threatening her because he owns his own business

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My daughter is having problems with her daughter's father. He is always threatening her because he owns his own business & she's not working right now. He makes her let hm take my granddaughter every other week even though we all agreed that once she started school that would stop. Now my granddaughter is wetting her pants again and is just can't be settled. He wants my daughter to sign off on his child support that he hasn't paid all year so he's threatening her again
JA: How old are your children? What state do they live in?
Customer: We live in Nebraska my daughter is 26, granddaughter is 5
JA: Is there an agreement for payment of child support?
Customer: There is a child support order for something ridiculous like $17 a month He was in prison when it was ordered
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Thank you no I think that's it

I am very sorry to hear that. That type of behavior is unacceptable. Even though child support had been previously ordered, it would not affect a potential child custody agreement. I would strongly recommend that she file a petition with the court to establish a custody agreement and she can argue that it is in the best interest of the child to be with their given the poor behavior of the father. She can also ask that child support be modified now that he is working. She can hire an attorney or she can seek help from her local legal aid office at no charge.

Customer
Ok we'll try that
