Q: I'm wanting to know what "cause stricken" means with DHS pursuing a noncustodial parent who has not paid child support.

The noncustodial parent does not have custody and has not paid anything since it was ordered by court during the divorce finalization.

Would have to see what you are taking about but, if a hearing for instance was stricken that means basically that the hearing was cancelled.

Q: Can a former Judge who was recently over my childs custody case. Resign as Judge, and then turn around and be a partner

With the mothers Attorney against me? Is that not a conflict of interest?

Pete David Louden
answered on Jun 12, 2021

Same answer. The attorney and the former judge will probably know and have worked with many of the other local attorneys. Not necessarily a conflict.

You should have your own attorney and then you won't have to worry about who is representing the other party.

If the parties are not married and there is no court order for custody/visitation, then the mother has custody.

Don't wait until there is a problem to take action. Hire an attorney NOW, as in first thing tomorrow morning so you can secure legal rights to the child.
