Yes, for purposes of child support a child is defined as follows:
"Child" means an individual under 18 years of age, an individual under age 20 who is still attending secondary school, or an individual who, by reason of physical or mental condition, is incapable of self-support.
You are not legally obligated to follow a Guardian ad Litem's recommendations regarding parenting time. However, depending on the situation it may be advisable. I would need more information before adequately answering your question and providing advice.
My cousin and his wife (soon to be divorced) are having problems. She walked out on him and her kids to live with her boyfriend months ago. And now is threatining to take the girls away. Is it illegal for her to do so? What should he do?
I would need more information to adequately answer your question. For starters, it depends on whether there is a court order granting your cousin parenting time. Please have your cousin contact me if he is interested in setting up a consultation at #651.270.6484.
The citation should be sent to the address listed on your driver's license or state issued identification card. There is no law that prevents the Court from mailing a citation/court date to your parents' address.

Their father is abusive and rarely sees them. There is no court order deciding custody or visitation. I need to move out of this house but am having on luck finding anything here. I am considering moving out of state so my children don't end up homeless.
expeditor. The judge never made us find one. The father has not seen my kids in a year. Can i leave state without his consent with my kids? I know he can't pay to get an expeditor so he can't take me back to court again, can he?
Because Father has parenting time, you would need either Father's consent or court permission to leave the state. This advice is general and if you want advice specific to your case you can contact me at 651-270-6484.
