Mary is the custodial mother of her children; this means the children live with her. She and the non-custodial father, are married, but separated. The parents went to Family Court to establish orders of custody, visitation and child support. After this, they initiated the divorce proceeding, in Supreme Court, which stalled. Mary filed in Family Court to increase child support because of an increase in the father’s income but her case was dismissed because of the pending divorce action in Supreme Court. Mary’s options are extremely limited because she is without an attorney, or pro se. She can either pay her divorce attorney to file additional paperwork to deal with this issue in Supreme Court, or she would simply have to wait for the divorce to finalize before she can once again bring it in front of Family Court.
