I have no problem paying whatever is needed for my child, my question is how I’m I suppose to correct this situation when the other parent have family members working... Read more »
Since this involves Puerto Rico you need to address the problem there not in NY. If you live in NY you can try to file a petition to stop child support as the child is not attending college and the defense would have to prove what college the child is attending [you might even get the grades for...Read more »
The judge has ruled against his modification, petition to reduce, and now he has petitioned for suspension. We started the process 2/17 and finalized 6/17. He lost his job 8/18; got the order reduced based off another CS case but that case was dropped and my original order was reinstated 10/19, now... Read more »
Unfortunately there isn't much you can do unless he keeps filing and the court has had enough. At this point you can try to move to dismiss if he hasn't shown a change of circumstances since the last order.

Your question depends on which state this is all taking place in. I cannot tell you about PA law. In NY however, if the house was purchased during the marriage she is entitled to part of the proceeds in the divorce. Even if it was purchased before the marriage she may be entitled to part of the...Read more »

If things are as you say, the court will order your parents to pay support to you. I strongly urge you to have a consultation with an...Read more »
