I will now have shared physical custody instead of partial. I work and sons father doesn’t. Can what I was paying with partial custody be decreased now that I will have my child 50/50? Dad can, but chooses not to work. Is this okay? Can they ask him why he’s unable to work? Should I pay the... Read more »
Your order may decrease but it's all dependent n your relative incomes. You should consult in person with an experienced family law attorney in your area to discuss the best way to present the case in regard to the father's alleged inability to work.
I was staying at my parents house for the duration of a drawn out divorce. I was given every other weekend based on my distance. I am purchasing a home within the same school district and less than 10min from where my children reside with my ex. I want to be an equal parent to my children but my... Read more »
Doesn't sound like it's on the up and up. What exactly do you think she should do about it? I assume she can go to the District Attorney's Office about it but you can be certain the ex gf will either flat out deny the accusation or say there was a misunderstanding.
I am currently married but recently separated. The mother of my 3 children (ages 10, 12, and 14) moved out in May to her parents house. We recently went to child support mediation where she was asking for $2390 a month; my monthly income is $3800, which will not allow me to even afford my... Read more »
Her unemployment compensation should have been taken into account. Check the bottom left side of the order where the respective incomes of the parties are shown. If it shows zero for her then you should consider seriously appealing to a judge but be careful not to miss the appeal period . That's...Read more »
Is there a law that says the spouse who was in the wrong can still get child support knowing what they did was wrong. Also my children were involved with the other person. My kids were told to keep him secret from me . He is currently living with her. Is she due child support or can I fight it.

It’s been a battle she is well known in the courts but how addicts are viewed now is different than 10 years... Read more »
Retail theft is not one of the crimes that the custody court is expected to consider when making a custody determination. I wouldn't think that you can have the support stopped based on these charges either. Obviously you're very frustrated with the court system but these arrests are not likely the...Read more »
She wants to live with me badly because of the abuse that goes on at home. Which I know of because I had to endure abuse myself when living with them. I am 33yrs old. My parents are narrcistic. They won't even allow her to visit me or we can't talk on the phone or anything. Because they know She'll... Read more »
If the abuse is *physical* abuse, you should contact the Children & Youth agency for the county in which your sister lives. Even if it's only mental/emotional abuse, I'd contact that agency and let someone know what's going on. Hopefully they'll open up an investigation and get to the bottom of...Read more »

People take pictures of family members all the time. When they are your kids and you are just taking their picture for a memory of an event or otherwise, unless you have a custody order to the contrary, there should be no issue. If you are posting pictures of your kids on social media, it should...Read more »
Every day/night at least once a day during my custodial period the father, stepmother, and sometimes step-siblings ask son to call them. They are on the phone for no less than 5 mins, sometimes 15-20 mins. If I'm lucky, I get 1-5 mins.
If son gets to see them briefly during an event, am I... Read more »
Yes, you should still allow the call. If you believe that the manner in which these calls are being handled is unreasonable, then you will probably have to file a petition with the court to request clarification and perhaps some rules-setting.
