Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but here goes.

I'm getting married April 2 to the most wonderful guy in the world. Everything is great, for the most part. He has a two year old daughter with the woman he was with before me. They've never been to court to decide custody issues, and he has been giving her $200 a month for Faith (his daughter) even though they never had a formal agreement about that through the child support office. Recently, Erica (his ex) filed for formal child support. Even the counselor at the child support office doesn't understand why she's doing this becouse she'll be getting a little bit less than she's getting now. Anyway, Dustin and I signed the papers. Now she won't let him see Faith at all. She was letting him have her every sunday. Neither of us are sure what to do, and it's hard on us not to be able to see Faith. To make it even worse, Erica has family in Mexico and has threatened on numerous occasions to move back there with Faith. I have no clue what to do. Has anyone been through this before?

Really the best advice we can give you is to seek legal counsel at this point. A lawyer will be able to tell you exactly what your legal rights are in the situation as far as paying support and custody/visitation rights.
