Your question is confusing. Gross up is when the tables go through calculations twice to determine child support. Once for the child's basic needs, and the second time for a "gross up" of additional needs from spending extra time with the second parent. The gross up calculation...Read more »
My sons biological father is not on the birth certificate and paternity has never been established. My son is about to be 6. Bio dad (an incarcerated violent felon) has not seen him since he was 6 months old and has made no effort to contact is in the last 3 years. Can my fiancee, who has been in... Read more »
Yes! You need to do a step-parent adoption which includes checking if the biological father registered himself in the Florida putative father registry. If he didn't, which most men do not do, then there is no need for consent from him. His rights would be terminated in the adoption. But you...Read more »
Yes, you will need his consent or you will need to have him served with the petition for name change. If he is served and does not object, then you can go forward without his consent. If he responds, then you will need to convince the court why the name change is in the child's best interest....Read more »
This sounds like a complicated issue that will require more details to assist with. Neither the step-parent nor the grandma has rights to the children. Therefore if one is causing alienation from the other, there may not be much the court can do. But it is a child's right not to be spoken to...Read more »

My son and I moved to Florida in 2013. All the visitation and child support paper work was done in Ohio right after we moved (that’s where his dad lives and where we moved from). Recently Florida took over the child support portion because I lost my job and needed to get my son on state insurance... Read more »
Once your child has been in the State of Florida for more than 6 months, you are able to domesticate or establish your case in Florida and request a modification. You do not need to go back to Ohio to make changes. But what your son wants is not a good enough reason not to send him to his...Read more »
Do I have any legal recourse in getting my inheritance back from my exhusband in our divorce. While married I received a sizable inheritance that he borrowed/took and purchased himself a car, motorcycle and spent approximately 50k shopping. The motorcycle and car are in his name only.
Like many things, it depends. It depends on whether you were aware he was using it, depends whether the funds were commingled with marital funds, depends on if the assets are still around... anything purchased during the marriage is marital even if it's in only one person's name. You...Read more »
Agree with Rand. Child support is through high school or until a child turns 18. Therefore, it looks like child support will be completed if your child already finished high school and is approaching 18.
My brother had slapped my nephew and so he called me to come get him. When i got there, my brother said he wasnt going anywhere but then threatened to beat the crap out of him when i left so i stayed. After arguing for several minutes he told him to leave but not to ever come back and even said he... Read more »
Typically, if you are returning to where the other parent resides, the other parent is likely to agree with the relocation. Otherwise, you are supposed to follow the relocation laws of your state to obtain permission to move. If the relocation happens by agreement, you and the other parent can...Read more »

There's a lot of information in your question and you should probably consult with an attorney for more detaled legal advice. That being said, if there is no child support order, the child support amount has not been legally established and therefore the Father is not violating a court order...Read more »
NCP was supposed to hold medical insurance on a special needs child and never did. The child has since been emancipated and I am looking to collect arrears that are past due? DOR has a hearing 10/14/2020 for contempt of non-payment...I need to know if I can ask them to recalculate the past due... Read more »
The court can only give you what you ask for. You have to file a Motion for Contempt if he was supposed to do something and did not do it and it cost you money. Most child support orders include a division of medical expenses and you can seek reimbursement for those expenses. But unless a motion...Read more »
I am to move into his house and take care of his wife and to have anyone removed if they don't have permission to be there. The wife is not mentally stable to make decisions for her self. Question is can I do all of that without the police getting called and me going to jail for trespassing
The problem is not the police being called, but the fact that if his wife is there and this home is marital, a power of attorney is probably not sufficient to give you authorization over her property. If she has mental capacity and has not been declared incapacitated, a power of attorney on the...Read more »
I've received a letter from the Clerk of Courts over a month ago stating arrears are paid in full. Therefore the case is closed with the Dept. if Revenue. I've looked up the case order online the case status is consent judgement not closed!
I was not informed of the proceedings in February, he was awarded sole custody by a majistrate, last week i was granted a retrial, does he maintain sole custody now or does it defer to the agreement signed by a judge on 8/20?
This depends on what the order for the retrial state. If the order was set aside, then the prior court order applies. If the retrial order did not set aside the last custody order, then you are still under that order.
You really need to have an attorney assist you in evaluating all of your...Read more »
He lives in Colorado, I live in Florida, our case jurisdiction falls in Colorado. He has decision making. But he wouldn’t be going with the kids. Him and his fiancé were kicked out so they sent our 2 kids and their 1 child to live with his parents in Kansas for the school year.
I'm pretty sure the courts in Colorado would not be ok with him sending the children to live with third parties over a parent. Unfortunately, you will have to get an attorney in COlorado to assist you since I'm assuming that is the home state of the children for the last six months.
An unwed Mother is the sole and natural guardian of children born outside of a marriage. Therefore as the Mother, only you have the authority to choose their school and their residence. Once you go to court though, that changes. You may want to try to work it out with the Father. Otherwise, you and...Read more »
Child lives with neither parent yet she seeks child support. Lost my job and I’m a injured vet whom served 7+yrs. original case from Illinois. Mother moved child from Chicago to Arizona without fathers (me) consent or knowledge
Your question is unclear. If you need someone to review the order of child support or modify it, since you lost your job, you will need to have someone where the order was initially entered, which from your question was not in Florida. You may want to repost your question in the Illinois section of...Read more »
Why are they still garnishing my disability check and took my stimulus money when I don't owe them nothing I sent a copy of the transaction history dating all the way back to 2012 showing balance due is zero I believe I'm intitlled to reimbursement from the date of case being closed til now
Sometimes, when a child support order is not clear when child support ends, you have to ask the court to end the child support. You may need to get a court order ending the support and addressing the issue of over payments.
