Buffalo Divorce Attorney Discusses Filing for Child Support if Your Spouse Lives in Another State
If you’re filing for child support, and the other parent resides out of state, you file for it in New York State Family Court. As an experienced Buffalo Divorce Attorney, I would say that this is done in the same manner in which you would file for child support if the other party was living here in New York.
The notices are going to be sent out differently. The out-of-state party is going to have the right to appear in Family Court in the state they reside in, usually by video or some other form of communication that the court is going to set up. Both parties can present their case in the two different courts, and still be able to communicate with the court here in Erie County.
