In Court you will need to disclose more than just the balances of your bank accounts. You will need to probably fill out an updated Family Court Case Information Statement, which provides your last year's income, your current YTD income, you income based on your last three pay stubs, your monthly...Read more »
If you are the legal parent of the child, then you have a child support obligation. The right to be financially supported is the child's right, not that of the custodial parent. You cannot "sign away" your rights to a child to avoid child support, unless you mean signing over your parental rights...Read more »
If it is his premarital property, the only claim she might attempt is for a portion of the appreciated value of the property during the marriage. That is, if the house was worth $200,000 on the date of the marriage with a $100,000 mortgage (so total equity in the house was $100,000 on that date),...Read more »
The mother want child support while I pay for my part of college, I pay for clothes, food, I bought my child a car. I don't care about paying for my kid education or expenses. I am just sick of giving money to my degenerate ex spouse that use the money to pay for helsef, party, drink and drugs
This is not the type of question that can be answered adequately in this type of focus. The general answer is that the child is not emancipated if (s)he is a full-time college student, so you have a continuing obligation to pay child support to the parent of primary residence. It is unclear from...Read more »
If you have not already, contact the child support call center (877-655-4371) and notify them that he will be awarded SSD, and probably a large lump-sum retroactive payment. I am not sure if they will be able to intercede to collect some portion of your arrears before he receives that payment, but...Read more »

I strongly suggest you contact a qualified family law attorney for a consultation. This type of move will affect both parents' lives and the child.

This type of issue is sensitive. Being that your post is two weeks old, I presume that one way or another it has resolved by now. As a general rule, it is best to try to address these type of teenager issues delicately, by trying to talk it through with your child, while trying to gently remind the...Read more »
Your spouse will only be entitled to a benefit based on your social security income if your marriage lasted for over 10 years. If she makes a claim on your benefits, it will have no impact on the amount of Social Security retirement you receive. She also would not have a claim to social security...Read more »
The short answer is yes, I believe you are able to file for support in New Jersey. Bring the divorce and custody orders with you when you go to the courthouse, as those orders will need to be registered in New Jersey to get the case opened.
It's hard to understand exactly what you are asking, but I am assuming you have an order granting you custody of a child and that you have, since the order was entered but before you actually obtained custody, began living with someone. If that is the case, your new roommate would not automatically...Read more »

You really need a lawyer to look at the specifics. Retroactivity might be fair in this fact pattern, but your ex probably would not get a retroactive award if the matter went to court, due to a statute. The bi-annual exchange of tax returns is not very unusual, but in your case it doesn't sound...Read more »
No. If the initial order was entered in PA, then PA law applies to the end date of the child support obligation. Also, there does not appear to be any basis for you to have an alimony obligation impressed on you now, after you did not pay alimony for 14 years. That said, you should probably bring...Read more »
Yes, if it was not already considered in the initial calculation of child support. In New Jersey a parent's payment of the child's portion of health insurance premiums should be factored into the calculation of child support pursuant to the New Jersey child support guidelines. In order to have the...Read more »

You realize you are posting on a public forum an admission of "possible" criminal conduct and/or conduct that would likely be harmful to the interests of children, right?

I'm not sure. You should, however, contact your county probation department and ask to speak with the probation officer who handles child support judgments. Tell him what you know. If they can intercept it, he/she should be able to help you figure out how. If not, you can at least try for a levy of...Read more »

So long as no new child support order has been issued, your son's father remains bout by the order currently in effect. That means that he should continue to pay child support based upon that order.
