Answer:



Answer:


You are required to make all child support payments until you receive an order from the court

permitting you to terminate such payment. You may bring a preceding in court to challenge

her right to serve as residential parent based on the fact that she is neglecting the child

and failing to make sure that he attends school as required under law.
