Hello. She would need to ask the Court's permission or get him to submit to a test voluntarily. Weed is illegal in Alabama. It is against the law to partake, have possession of it, sell it, etc. You have an obligation to your other children to protect them from illegal drugs. Thank you for...Read more »

Hello. No, it will not be legal unless and until it is a court order. Otherwise, you are at his mercy of when and how much he decides to pay. Contact DHR or hire an attorney to file for CS. Thanks for your question.

He does not have the right to bother you during your pregnancy. Contact him one last time and tell him if he bothers you again you will have him arrested. And then stop all contact. If he bothers you again call the police and have him arrested. When you go to the hospital and have the baby, do not...Read more »

My daughter, 16, had a baby with an adult man. She is unmarried, living with her mother, and I am paying child support for her plus insurance. Is the baby's father responsible for any hospital bills related to her care?
Hello. Your daughter is still a minor and whatever the current order states, that is what you will need to follow. The father is financially responsible for his child, not your child (daughter). Thank you for the question.
Hello. He's not required to pay without a court order. Sounds like you don't have one yet. Just stop pursuing it. Yes, you still have the option to do so in the future if you maintain custody. Thanks for your question.
Hello. It's impossible to tell you exactly without looking at your case. However, it sounds like you did not pay through the state; therefore, no records exist of your paying support. Thank you for your question.
Hello. Unless she is disabled and unable to care for herself, then it terminates on her 19th birthday. Any money received by the custodial parent after that date is subject to claw back, should the non-custodial parent decide to legally pursue it. Thank you for the question.
Hello, uncontested means child support will be addressed in your agreement. The Court will make whatever your agreement is the Final Order. So, no, unless you both agree. You will still need to complete the child support calculation forms so they can be filed on record. Best wishes.
Out weekly. She gave me no child support or alimony even though I stayed home with the kids and didn't have a career. I got a little place of my own because I couldn't stay where my ex was. He moved out of state and sold the house. Can I get child support and alimony now that I have my... Read more »

I will say...Read more »
