When I got married, my husband has two last names. We both want to just use one last name, so we signed out marriage certificate with that one last name. Is that proper documentation to change our names on legal documents or do we both have to do a legal name change?
Your question is a little confusing. Are you saying there was a support order in place that ended, but you were married the whole time? A subsequent divorce would not entitle you to recover child support that was ordered and paid.
If you don't already have a court case, you need to file a complaint for custody and parenting time with the court. If you do already have a court case with the mother, then you need to file a motion for specific parenting time and possibly custody.
Typically, there will be an agreement for your social security payment to satisfy your child support obligation. But otherwise, yes, social security can make the determination that if your ex has sole legal custody of the child, she would be entitled to that payment.
i am 17 years old, & i strive for adult life. i crave that adulting, & high responsible adult life. i want to move to ohio if my emancipation goes through. i’m not abused what so ever, my parents are loving & supportive. is this possible for me
Ironically, the fact that you say your parents are supporting may be a factor for your emancipation to be denied. Generally, to be emancipated, you need to make a showing that you are capable of supporting yourself.

If the child has been committed through some legal means, which it sounds like, you will likely need to show he no longer has a need for those services. That means you'd likely need to hire another professional to assess him and render an opinion. You may be better off, time and money wise, to...Read more »

This situation is why court orders exist. File a motion and get a court order for specific parenting time. That way, one person cannot just change their mind. Of course, parents can continue to agree to additions or changes. But an agreement requires two people to agree.

The VA does not owe you anything. The servicemember - your father - could elect to either use it himself or determine which child, or even his spouse, could use it. It does not matter that you are the first born. And GI Bill benefits are for education, and so an active support case would not affect...Read more »

I'm not sure what you can do at this point. When CPS is contacted, they do have an obligation to investigate. Your time to act will be when you receive the result of that investigation. Hopefully it is as the caseworker told you: unsubstantiated.
A report has been filed with CPS. Her parents filed a police report when she didn't return home from school. A teenage friend took her to the teen shelter for homeless and run away kids. Her parents and police are there telling her she has to go home with her father, and she's very frightened.
Sounds like this is in the hands of the professionals; I would leave it there. If there's a genuine concern, CPS will take appropriate measures. For your sake, do not involve yourself in this situation in a negative way by having her stay with you.
Hi, before my divorce (divorced for 2 years), I have cosigned a car loan for my ex-spouse (both of our names are on the title). As part of the divorce agreement, I agreed to let him keep things as is because his credit is not good enough for him to refinance the truck on his own. He supposed to... Read more »
A divorce will ALWAYS impact jointly owned property, and the fact it is placed in a 'trust' for some estate planning or administrative purpose doesn't mean a divorce court shouldn't or couldn't 'delve into'...Read more »
