We’re currently headed to mediation. However, I just found out that he “remarried... Read more »
You should contact an attorney but generally speaking bigamy is actually a criminal offense under Texas law, although a defendant can escape conviction if they reasonably believed they were not already married when they entered their second marriage.
We got 50/50 and the temp order states child support and alimony for me to start paying and for both of us to take care of our own mortgages and bills. She has not made the mortgage payment and I haven’t pay for child support and alimony yet since I don’t have any court paperwork. Her lawyer is... Read more »
The Order will include the start date that the judge ordered the payments to start. Most temporary orders are entered by the Court within a relatively short period of time after the hearing occurs, from a few days to a month or so on average. If the other party was required to prepare the order...Read more »

About $100,000 equity in the house, $30,000 in 401K and he has $40,000 in separate personal account from... Read more »
I dont know if any of the lawyers you met with for consultation purposes were specialists, but presumably during your consultation[s], you discussed your employment history, your husbands current employment setting and your employment potential to determine what your husbands support obligation...Read more »
I have 6 children. I'm on child support for only one of them due to the mother lying to me about closing the case before the court date. I provide for all children and with this one child support case it's taking away from me providing for my other children as I used to. Does the fact... Read more »
What is my next step if my ex fills out the Motion To Set Aside Default form? She is in default from my supplemental petition for modification for timeshare and child support. (I assume she would need to get a lawyer at that point and I will no longer be able to self litigate effectively. The judge... Read more »

My mother has been getting child support for me for years. My father still has quite a bit of back pay remaining. I no longer live with my mother, am over 18. She still has the card that the child support money is deposited on and is using it for her own needs. Even when I was living with her she... Read more »
I cannot tell you that it is impossible to do what you are asking; however, I can tell you that I have not seen it happen in the 20+ years that I have been practicing. MDHS is going to assume that your mother used her funds to support you during your minority; therefore, the arrearage amount is...Read more »
If the CP still lives in Georgia, the Georgia order remains in tact. The GA CS order can be enforced in the new state. the orders cannot be modified anywhere other than Georgia as long as the CP still lives in Georgia.
My ex has not seen my kids, going on 3 years. He also has not paid a penny in support. He owes about $45,000. He owns a business and does not give himself a paycheck. I supplied the court with his bank information, all addresses, and a list of assets and places he rents to store things. Why... Read more »
Your best course of action is to file a violation petition with the family court. The court can then put him in jail if they find he willfully failed to pay the support order and award you attorney fees for having had to bring the action. In regard to sole custody, it sounds as if you have sole...Read more »
If my ex and i presumably have a child, and she was married had the husband sign the birth certificate with out my knowledge, and ive been sending money to help support and I find out the child is is not mine would I be able to sue to get money that I sent for presumed child if i have records ?
Doubtful. It sounds like at this point you are sending her money out of the goodness of your heart and not pursuant to any order - in other words, the money you gave could be considered a gift. The law presumes that each party performs due diligence, and it doesn't sound like you took any...Read more »
I filed a supplemental petition to modify the parenting plan and child support to reflect the timeshare actually received. (She pays bare minimum and does not pick up her days.) I served her these motions and filed with the court, but she has not served me with the proper response. All she has... Read more »
The daughter is 18 and married. The mom has never been on any government assistance. It’s for back child support. He was told until it’s completely paid he can keep going to jail if it’s not paid. That there was no time limit to serve for it to be dismissed.
I recently file a motion to dismiss child support case. During the motion, the state and my ex-wife didn't show up. The judge then told me that, she will schedule hearing before approving my request to dismiss order. she moved it down to 5 months.; like late January. This is confusing. I want... Read more »

CSSD has a payback program so you can make payments on the arrears. You can also schedule a hearing for yourself on the issue of relief from getting your license suspended. I also recommend you seek a modification and for forgiveness of the debt incurred during the period your 12-year-old was...Read more »
