In North Carolina Child Support Enforcement Services must, by law, seek support from the non-custodial parent when a child receives some sort of public assistance, including Medicaid. You, as the custodial parent, cannot waive this even if you do have an agreement that states otherwise. The amount...View More

In North Carolina, there is really only one type of divorce -- "Absolute Divorce." However, when someone files for divorce, child custody and child support aren't automatically included. Also, the appropriate place to file for child custody or child support typically depends on where...View More

We were finally able to be divorced on 2/2023 but now she is trying to file child support against me. How is this even possible? Could she have legally... View More
In North Carolina, when a woman gives birth to a child while married to a man, the man is legally the father of the child. It doesn't matter that the man and the woman are separated, only whether they were legally married. A man who doesn't believe he is the biological father of the child...View More

If the judgment is accruing post judgment interest, you may wish to consider filing bankruptcy or settling rather than waiting it out. Judgments are good for 10 years and are easily renewed for another 10 years. Your only dangers in waiting them out is that your assets may appreciate and become not...View More
Sure. There is no requirement that both actions are handled together. However, I do question why you haven't been divorced yet. Many family law attorneys offer a "flat-fee" divorce package that isn't too expensive. Alternatively, you can attempt to file it yourself.
Long story short: He sexually abused my daughter, threatened to kill me over a misunderstanding, has been convicted (juvenile), is on probation in a sex-offender treatment facility for the last year and a half, and will turn 18 March 24th of this year. He already told me he will most likely... View More
If you think he will harm your daughter again if he returns, you CANNOT let him back in the home. You may need to contact Child Protective Services, and let them know the situation. Perhaps they can find a foster home for him. Financially, you and his father are still responsible for him. CPS may...View More
Yes, you can file discovery requests to seek relevant information to the case. However, there is no "form" for discovery requests, so it is something you will have to generate yourself (or more likely - pay an attorney to generate).
If you don't have an existing custody case, I would consider filing one ASAP. If you have an existing case, you may want to file a Motion for Emergency Custody before she leaves alleging that the child will be exposed to a substantial risk of bodily injury. Some judges may agree that such a...View More
If your child is receiving Medicaid, they will typically force child support whether you want it or not and you won't get to 'agree' to an amount, it will be set according to the child support guidelines. So it should not affect the Medicaid eligibility. Best of luck.
I'm not clear what the question is. There are some pro bono programs for domestic abuse victims. They usually focus on restraining orders and the like, rather than property and divorce. They also usually have more cases than they have resources to handle.
The short answer is - no. In order for a child to be adopted, your parental rights would need to be terminated. The best chance of you getting your child back is if this process is not yet complete and you hire an attorney. Best of luck.
My ex husband and I had a written agreement that he will be claiming our 2 older kids and I’ll be claiming the 2 little ones.that’s was my only option at that time (3 years ago) since I didn’t have and Attorny and couldn’t afford to have one. He only pay court order child support. He... View More
It depends on whether the agreement was properly drafted and executed and whether it was incorporated into your divorce judgment. Typically, you likely will not be able to change it. Even if you could change, it you'd likely need some grounds to do so which based on the facts in your...View More
