    my step son was dropped off by his mother, three months ago. We were finally able to get a court date for custody (he is 16). DOR has put all support payments on hold from today forward. Will she be forced to pay back the support she took for the three months he was not with her? (we live in Mass). She would not agree to sign him over prior to getting a court date. Now that we have a date, she has agreed to give us custody.

    "You" will not get custody. If custody is changed then your husband (The Father) will

    No kidding.. WE are a family. I know that I will not get custody, my husband will. That was not my question.

    No one can say for certain that will be up to Judge. If I were to bet I would say yes those funds should be returned

    Well in that case, the answer is simple:

    Maybe:D

    When you come to a forum looking for help, it generally behooves you to behave with some decorum. :yes:
