I was under the impression from correspondence that this would be automatic. When I contacted OCS I was sent a mod document which is more than I thought was necessary. Every time I try to call their 800 number for AA county it's busy. Not sure what I should do, filling out a full financial... Read more »
It is not automatic. The court/ child support enforcement is not watching to see when a child turns 18 or graduates high school. You must file with the Court to terminate (modify) the support. It is only retroactive to the date of filing -- not the date of the child graduating high school so...Read more »
I presume you are asking how to get your driver's license back after being suspended by child support enforcement. The easiest way is to make a payment on the child support owed.

If it is not in the Order, it did not change. The order contains everything that changed. For child support to change, you have to present evidence at trial about why the child support has to change and the amount of the expense that causes the changed. It is not just asking for it to change...Read more »
The child tax credit is set for IRS regulations based on the number of overnights. The parent with the most overnights is entitled to claim the child on taxes -- unless that parent agrees in writing to allow the other parent to claim.
Long story short the mother of the child didn’t know who the father was when she was pregnant and gave birth. She now has my significant other on child support and Denise him his rights to see his son. In a way it looks as if she doesn’t want the father to be part of the child’s life. She... Read more »
Whether or not he is on the birth certificate is irrelevant to his obligation to pay child support. If the child is his, he is legally obligated to support the child. If he would like a relationship with the child, he can file a custody matter where he asks for access. The mother cannot deny...Read more »
Two separate things. If you want access and are not getting it, you must file for it. You are entitled to some form access whether or not you are paying child support. On the other hand, paying child support does not guarantee a certain level access.
In the State of Maryland child support ends when the child turns 18 or graduates high school whichever is later. It does not continue because the child is attending college. Nor can he file for back support in Maryland. Support is only from the date of filing for it, not before that.
Husband had child outside of our marriage. After that mess, we managed to still be together. Financially, I would not like any of my hard work /financial to be something the birth mother can use to her favor. My husband has 50/50 custody with child support obligations. If any motion is filed and... Read more »
Only your husband's income would count towards the child support obligation. You have no legal obligation to the child so you income cannot be considered for calculating the obligation.* His income is proved in ways other than tax returns. His W-2 shows only his income.
We supposed to have every other weekend every other holiday 8wks out of the summer and communication 7pm daily we have not seen the child since February and no communication since april a well check was done and the officers was told the child was not there but in north Carolina
You must file against the other person for contempt. The court has the power to enforce the current order against the other parent. If the child is out of state, t he other parent can be required to return the child to the state.
Last night he threw firecrackers at my apt. I thought it was a shotgun because of the very loud sound so i called the police and told them i heard a shotgun firing by my apt. They came and admitted that he had firecrackers but no gun on him. He has threatened me in the past. The cops allowed him to... Read more »

I don't think I should be required to provide their basic necessities for his house. Am I required to provide all clothing... Read more »
To keep at his house, no. You should back a bag for the kids and that bag with all its contents should come back from each visit. If he wants clothes kept at his home, he should provide them. Child support is not enough to cover two sets of clothing for the kids plus provide for their other...Read more »

Without a court order, both parents have equal custody. The mother could take the child to live with her.
