Navarre, FL asked in Child Support for North Carolina

Q: My Fiancee pays child support for 3 daughters in North Carolina. He lives in Florida. 2 daughters have turned 18.

When he called Child services in North Carolina they said child support will continue until the youngest who is 13 turns 18 unless he goes to court for reduction of child support. He cant afford to leave work to drive for Florida to North Carolina make court dates for this. Can he hire a paralegal to represent him in court? One daughter is going to college this year and he wants to help her with this. He is continuing to make all payments and health care, and extra money they may need, now and has never been behind in payments. Any info would help.

A: Paralegals are not allowed to practice law and go to court, as they do not have a license to practice law. An attorney can do this for you.
