Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My husband left me for a work colleague he was having an affair and got pregnant for over 6 months. He left me and our two kids. He was abusive and even when I confronted him about this woman he was seen, he will get angry and agressive.
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: Now he is threatening me that he wants to take me to family court and he will not pay child support if I don't let him have the kids every second weekend and 2 to 3 days a week.
JA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?
Customer: Auckland New Zealand.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just wanting to know how much power does he have, I except he is the father, but do not except his bulling attitude. He cheated, he got married and now he thinks he can come and threaten me for custody of my kids.

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Child support is something you can claim through Inland Revenue and he cannot stop paying this as a condition of seeing the children. Inland Revenue will assess him and deduct the payments from his income even if he is not seeing the children.

But if you want him to see the children (perhaps they may want some contact) then you can negotiate a parenting agreement which says when they can visit him. Some use a lawyer but you can also mediate through Fairway who appoint family mediator who will meet with with both of you and sort out a parenting agreement.
