Technically all back child support is due and owing. There are limits on what can be collected via income withholding on your wages. A typical income withholding is often 150% of the child support. Thus, if your child support obligation is $300, then a typical income withholding may be $450. It...Read more »
Non-married, child. 12/15 breakup. Verbal agreement 50/50 sharing. I paid for 80%+ of food, toys, clothing, etc. Everything good. They popped another child out 10/16 and another one 10/17 with partner. Bad financial management led to them getting evicted, 03/18. Provided ex and children a roof over... Read more »
If you are sued by your ex for child support and are properly served, and then you fail to respond, be it in Tenn. or Fla., you'll likely end up with some kind of default order against you. Which can lead to further issues. Best not to ignore lawsuits if one is filed--things usually just get worse....Read more »
I owe my child's mother back child support. I was paying her for years through Western Union and she wasn't reporting it. I was able to get that taken off what I owe because I was able to produce proof of the payments. Fast forward a few years, and she said she is willing to have the balance... Read more »
In many States the custodial person can sign an affidavit stating they have received the money and there isn't anymore due; however, it will depend on whether there is any money due the State for medicaid recovery, etc. You can check the State's child support website for more information.
I have started the child support process without a court ordered child custody agreement? If we get a notarized parenting plan will that be enough to prevent any negative repercussion if/ when the father is served with documentation for the cs? Will he be able to just take baby from me if i have a... Read more »

My ex owes me over 6,000 dollars in child support. I barely make any money and have full custody of my son. He didn't show up to two show-cause hearings. They increased support and he hasn't paid me at all. One time they brought him in and he gave a sob story about how he doesn't have a job so they... Read more »
This won't be the answer you probably want to hear but it is the reality. What you've seen is what will continue until the amount owed becomes such as to justify a felony charge for non-support. And even then, he may just sit in jail.
There is very little you can do on the enforcement end...Read more »
That's an interesting question. You should file a motion asap and request that the funds be applied towards the arrearage. I don't know what a judge would do, but I suspect you have a good chance on winning this.
I was serve on Friday 01-17-2020 with a notice of registration of foreign support order.
It states if i want to contest the validity or enforcement of the order, I must file a written request for hearing asking the court to vacate the order. Which forms do I have to fill out? I live in the... Read more »
There are no forms for that. You need to hire a lawyer to draft the motion, which has to be based on the legal grounds that the Illinois order is invalid in Illinois, incorrect, or not the current order. So your NC lawyer would either need to consult with an Illinois lawyer (and get an opinion...Read more »

I have an almost 1 yr old. The father and i have a visitation schedule all figured out between us, but nothing through the courts. I have baby from friday evening through wednesday, and he has baby wednesday night through friday evening.
She was fine when I dropped her off. Also she was not complaining of any medical issues to her dad or myself. Her dad was a work when the wife took her. The father is not legitimized. What legal action can I take?
The real question is how what your child harmed by this? If the stepmother felt she had a medical issue and the urgent care either treated it or decided there was no issue, there doesn't seem to be any harm done to your child.
From whom are you going to get child support? He has no income and his child support is suspended while he is incarcerated. So unless he gets an inheritance or wins the lottery while in prison, you won't be eligible for child support until he gets out
we are not together and are able to coparent very well together still. we have both decided that whatever the children need we will get together and split everything. will the state still make one of us pay child support if we both agree that that is not needed.
Your attorney or mediator, if you agree on everything, needs to draft a Consent Judgment regarding custody and child support. However, child support can always change under one of the following circumstances:
1) one parent accepts state or federal aid, like medicaid,
Child wants to graduate high school early but I don't think they are mature enough yet. We don't have anything outlined in the parental plan for higher education however I am the primary decision maker with high school.
