I have a child that was 17 at the time of her dad went missing. I was receiving child support and alimony. D's body wasn't recovered and no death certificate was issued by FL (state of accident). Montrose County filed for support of evidence that he was deceased but bec it took place in... Read more »
I am sorry to hear about the situation. You could talk to a caseworker who could explain the reason. Often people will have life insurance to insure support or you might be able to make a claim against the estate if probate is a possibility.
Generally the main issue at a child support hearing is proof of your income. You may also want to have a list of any direct payments that you received, if any. If you receive the child support then DOR may still represent you. Contact them directly for guidance.
We agreed in our dissolution, to no child support. She came to me shortly after that, and demanded I paid her. So I have been paying support, since then, though I was not ordered by any court to do so, so she wouldn’t move my child a long distance from me. Now she has brought up going through the...

Yes, she can file to have a child support order issued. Even after a marriage terminates, the court retains jurisdiction to review child support issues until the child is 18 or graduates high school. Ohio uses a calculation worksheet. Here is a link where you can enter amounts and get a...Read more »
Got unemployment and we all got medical card. However she by law had to put them on her insurance as well. She had other kids on it that were not mine already. Am I liable for part of her premium? If so how is it calculated? Now I'm self employed grossing 25,000. Will they go by that gross or... Read more »
My child support modification was recently transferred to a new judge. I have represented myself up until this point but the judge just ruled against child support. Before this judge took over the previous judge had already said child support would be modified and I proved a change of... Read more »
If the judge is not involved in the daily case activities of the former firm, then this would likely not be a conflict of interest situation. The judge has a duty to be impartial and their former employment should not play a part in their ruling. However, if you feel uncomfortable, you may exercise...Read more »
The father was ordered to carry insurance & pay a set amount biweekly. Since the order was put into place he lost his job due to drug use & eventually completed rehab, now has a new job making a significant amount more than when the original amount was ordered. My husband & I have also... Read more »
Child support is based on each parent's income or ability to earn income if they are not working. If you are able to work as a nurse but choose to stay home the court can impute income to you as if you were working. The imputed income will be used to calculate the child support.
My daughter (14) moved in with me Jan 7th of 2020 due to her mother not being steady or able to provide basic needs. Her mother packed her stuff and gave her to me (i have video). I filed all requested paperwork that the state asked but now it's in limbo because the CP makes excuses to why... Read more »

My brother has health issues and can't travel and they still are taking child support for his son that is now an adult and is not in school. Is there anything he can do from PA to get those payments stopped?
My ex wife,kids and I move more than 5 years ago to Florida, she register the case in Florida and is being enforced by DOR, PR child support is till age 21, Florida 18, she is now requesting a modification of child support and my oldest is almost 19. Do I have to continue paying till the kids are... Read more »
Florida only enforces the original order from PR. If that order says child support until 21 then that is the law of the case. You have to return to court (in FL) to litigate the modification. You should look for a local family lawyer that offers a free consultation to explain or investigate the...Read more »
We currently have a shared parenting agreement. I have him twice a week after school until 8 and every other weekend. We split all holidays and breaks from school. But the magistrate said she still considers it basically standard visitation, and the mother the primary guardian or custodial parent,... Read more »
Yes, you should file to modify parenting time. It would be best to have an attorney assist you in how best to present your arguments. You will probably want to ask the magistrate or judge to interview him on what time he’d like with you.
My ex filed for child support in the state of California but moved to a different state. I’m suppose to have a court hearing but I no longer reside in California either. I’m unsure of what I should do.
Thanks for your question! I would strongly recommend that you reach out to a family law attorney in your area as soon as possible so the attorney can review the previous final order with you and learn more about the facts surrounding your situation.
Not sure what you mean by "on going stipulation for separation". Has the stipulation been signed? Is there litigation "on going"? If there is a signed separation agreement, you can go into court and ask for a modification. Whether you get it or not will depend on several...Read more »
