In MN, i have been separated from my wife for 4 years, but we have not yet finalized the divorce. She now has a 9 month old child that I am not the father of. However, I recieved notice in the mail that i am expected to pay child support for this child.
Yes, unless you are able to establish that you are not the father. I strongly suggest you contact an attorney to discuss your matter as there are strict time limitation in challenging paternity. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your matter - 651.270.6484.
You would have sole legal and physical custody of your child. Legal custody is the right to make decision involving religious, medical, and educational issues. Physical custody means the parent that makes decision regarding the daily care of the minor child.
More information would be needed to properly answer your question. For example, it would be important to know whether mother has parenting time at all during the summer. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your issue #651.270.6484.
I have never let my dogs unattended. And the only reason that this subject was brought up was that I was taking out the dogs to go to the restroom outside and came back in & the dogs saw some neighbors in the hallway.

It depends on what the child support order states whether there is automatic holding of child support. In any event, child support orders, even from a different state, can be enforced in Minnesota. So, her check can certainly be garnish for child support orders from Kansas.
My first question would be why do you think your neighbor says this? If your dog is causing problems in your neighbors' yard, then I would hesitate to advise legal action but would need more facts to properly advise you. If you are in fear of your neighbor, you may have grounds to file an Order...Read more »

It is difficult to give advice without reviewing the custody decree. Generally, the father should be paying something in child support. I really would set up a consultation with a family law attorney to discuss available options.
This certainly could affect whether you have custody of your caught. The court will look at who ever is living in your household and would take into consideration that he has been criminally charged. It would heavily depend on the facts of your case and the facts surrounding your husband's...Read more »
I am the custodial parent of a 13 year old. The non-custodial parent moved away and hasn't seen him in 5 years. When he moved he gave me full custody but kept the right to reasonable (25%) parenting time so he could visit him when he came back to town. He has not used the parenting time for the... Read more »

In any event, you have to meet certain requirements before you can seek a modification...Read more »
You could try calling Child Protective Services but they generally only get involved in more extreme cases of abuse where the child is in imminent danger of being harmed.

Yes, you can and you should include the in forma pauperis (or fee waiver) form with the petition. If you don't the court will reject your filing and demand either the IFP forms or a check to cover the filing fee.
