You would need to write up and file with the Court a written Stipulation reflecting what provisions of the Judgment you've agreed to modify. Both parties would need to sign and notarize the Stipulation. You then need to prepare and file a proposed Order and a proposed Amended Judgment.
My husband is paying child support for 2 children. His income has gone up since then. He got a higher paying job so we could make ends meet. But we now we have 2 boys of our own. I'm afraid if it's reviewed the amount he pays will go up. On the "child support calculator" on the... Read more »
The short answer to your question is "yes, the biological children your husband does not share with the obligee are taken into consideration." That being said, it is not a dollar for dollar "match." In other words, your husband's child support obligation may still go up...Read more »
I’m originally from Wa, and have lived in North Dakota with my daughter up until a year and a half ago when I needed immediate medical attention because of severe Crohn’s disease, malnutrition and heart failure. I am now on the mend and would like my daughter to live with me in Wa because that... Read more »
They have supported me my whole life sending me to private school and only until this summer did I get a job as they said it was unnecessary in the past. This summer they told me I had to live with them here in ND instead of our home in AZ. I was told I have 7 days to get out of the apartment by... Read more »
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, any parental responsibility in North Dakota ended on your nineteenth birthday. They are no longer obligated to house you, feed you, or provide for you. If the care is in their name, then you no longer have a right to that either....Read more »
If the parents are unable to sort it out between the two of them, the matter would need to go before a judge. Without further information, it is impossible to determine the outcome of such a proceeding.
There is never a guarantee that you can obtain custody over a child that is not yours. That said, you have several options to pursue and should contact an attorney to discuss whether custody is the best route for you to take. Some routes are more difficult and expensive than others and your lawyer...Read more »
We were living in oklahoma from April 2017 to April 2018. My children's dad and I decided to move back up to North Dakota. And he went back to Oklahoma for work and we ended up splitting up a month and a half later. He's threatened to take the kids away from me in the past. He raped me... Read more »
You should have an attorney review the document as it is easy to assume there is no termination date mentioned when there is - unfortunately, an attorney will not be able to answer this question online.
We have been divorced since 2009 (my son was 2) and as my son has gotten older, he hates going down to his father's - to the point it will make him sick. His dad is never around to spend time with him on his weekend, his new wife/children are mean to my son, and when he's there, he is to... Read more »
Like most legal answers, it really depends. What state are they living in? Is there an Order/Judgment in place? In North Dakota, if there isn't anything in place, he has as much of a right to the child as the mother does. That being said, he should not keep the child from her. There are...Read more »
We agreed to motivated transportation but since he is to have his transitional visitation scheduled visits in a public location, I am of the belief that a car is not a public location and therefor I want to provide the transportation and believe they should stay in one place for the entire duration...

Yes, it is certainly possible. North Dakota Century Code Chapter 14-09 deals with child custody. The court heavily weights the twelve best interest factors as stated under NDCC 14-09-06.2. I hope this helps!

I would like to get custody of my son and I was told by friends that they had an experience where the mother let their child hang around a sex offender and she lost full rights as a parent. I'm also in that situation and I was just wondering if it's possible.
Mom has been receiving the money and hasn’t given my son any of it. He has been living in North Dakota for 2 yrs, supporting himself. How can I stop the child support (close the case) and can I sue his mother to get back the money that belonged to taking care of him.
The answer is "it depends." Is there a Judgment? What does the Judgment say? If there is no Court Order/Judgment, then the father should have as much of a right to the child as the mother does. You should contact an attorney as this situation is very fact dependent.
