That depends. If there is a custody order, you will need to modify that so that he can register her for school. If the order was in Georgia, and she is here now, it would be appropriate for him to file here to modify it. If you both agree to terms, this could be uncontested and an attorney could...Read more »
It sounds like what you are asking is if the Court can "double dip." If the income from the first job satisfies support, and any accompanying arrears, they should clearly not be withholding from another job also. Talk to the child support office about this. If you get nowhere there,...Read more »

Your parenting plan will govern these issues. If you have a temporary order, this should be addressed in a parenting plan. To the extent he is violating any terms of that order, you may need to file a Motion for Contempt to address it. Consult with counsel if you do not already have counsel.
No to most of what you are asking because most of what you mentioned has nothing to do with income and everything to do with expenses. If you have another child support order in place, or guardianship over another child in your household, this may affect your income by reducing it by the amount...Read more »

You need to consult an attorney in Puerto Rico. In Georgia only the parent's income would matter, and that would be the case regardless of what your prenup says. Consult with an attorney in the state you plan to live to make sure that prenup meets the requirements that state sets forth....Read more »

They then alienated me, and the childs mother signed her rights over to my mother without my knowledge. My mother then took my son and moved to Louisiana. What is the first step I can take to getting my son back?

If she is in DFCS care you are going to have to pay child support. You need to speak with someone about representation in the juvenile court case. You are entitled to court appointed representation in a juvenile dependency case if you meet the income requirements.

That is a fantastic question. However, I would encourage you to repost it in the insurance law forum, as that is a little bit out of the wheelhouse of most family law attorneys. Good luck getting resolution to this matter.
The expenses themselves typically have very little to do with an award of support. If you have kids currently, there is some accounting for that in the child support worksheet. You need to speak with an attorney to defend you so that you make sure you get all allowable deviations and credits...Read more »

We have 50-50 custody now, and I pay for my two children, it my oldest who is 16 does not want to live with his mother anymore, do I still have to pay child support for him? Can I just get my child support in half?
You need to consult with counsel about a modification of custody and visitation, as well as a modification of support. Without seeing the numbers, it's hard to say exactly what will happen with support based on the new circumstances. It really depends on incomes and what happens with the...Read more »
You cannot compel a child to be emancipated. The right of action lies in the child. You cannot relinquish your parental rights either. You may have an action for contempt, but you would need to discuss this in further detail with counsel to determine if that is the case.
