would it be concidered extortion if my kids mother says the only way I can see my kids is If I pay her 650 dollars?

Child support and visitation are two separate matters.

If you are ordered to pay child support and aren't she needs to take you to court to have that resolved. If you aren't ordered to pay child support and she feels she needs money, she needs to take you to court for that as well.

If you have a custody arrangement signed by a judge she is required to abide by that, regardless of and independent of the status of your child support situation. Failing to allow you access to your children when there is a court order allowing it is a jailable offense. (she's in contempt of court)

Child support is for supporting the children and paying for their living expenses. It is NOT payment to the custodial parent in exchange for visitation rights.

If she will not allow you to see your children the next time it is your court appointed time, have a copy of the custody arrangement in your hand and call the police.

Do you pay child support? If not, maybe she needs money for the kids. If you pay child support then I don't think she can do that.

If you've been paying child support and being part of your kids life get an attorney. If you haven't she probably needs help and sorry can't blame her

The courts dissmissed the child support and only requires me to carry the kids on my insurence! The kids are supposed to be with me all summer long and 3weekends out of each month but she moved and hasn't let me see them since November. If she needs the money she can get a job. Kids are not paychecks

And you are right kids are not paychecks. It's hard to give advice when we don't know the whole story. She's wrong in not letting you see your kids. Sounds like you need an attorney and I really hope the best for you. And I'm sorry for my comment. If she's not taking care of them properly maybe you can go for full custody. My son did for his son and won. Good luck

I don't think it's legal 4 her to keep it ur kids from u . U should look into it some of them try this tactic but without a custody agreement it's not legal unless you've dune.somtin to harm them.
