Ask
A Lawyer on SingleDad:

Does Moving States Affect
Child Support?

If my
ex-wife or I ever move to a different state than where we currently live what
happens to the existing child support order?

Do
we have to go through court all over again to come to a new agreement based on
the child support laws of the new
state?

Answer:

from Cordell & Cordell divorce
attorney Jamie Kinkaid:

The short answer is no. In fact, unless
everyone agrees after an order is entered in the original state, or if the
original state refuses to exercise jurisdiction, a new state will not assume
jurisdiction.

Therefore, the order in the issuing
state will remain in that state, however you can register it for enforcement in
another state. Registration for child support enforcement is different from
getting a new order.

Registration is simply asking the court
in the new jurisdiction to help you enforce a pre-existing order. Even with a
move you can set up a visitation schedule, which accounts for this possibility.

In
closing, please understand that my response is based on the limited facts you
have provided, and I do not practice law in the state where any necessary
proceedings may take place.
