Support for our daughter. Can i sue for support for those 2 plus yrs?
answered on Dec 9, 2020
In general, no. If you did not ask for past care and support at the time of the divorce when the child support order was put in place, you cannot go back and ask for it now. I would recommend you seek out the services of a family law attorney if there are other circumstances that might that might... Read more »
I was looking over my child support payments, no balance. And I always wondered if it is possible to open a child support case while married. My ex-wife opened this case in 2009 but we were divorced in 2010, so I always wondered how was that even possible to open a case while married.

If she was drawing support from the state they can bring an action.
My fiance was just served with a summons regarding child support that was on a child that might not be his. I am just wondering if we can prove that he is not the father, can she still charge him with child support.
answered on Feb 5, 2020
he needs to request a court-ordered paternity test performed as part of the child support action. If it excludes him from being the father, he will be fine. Of course, if it does not, he will be adjudicated the father and owe support.

Yes. Depending on the facts, the parent can face a misdemeanor or felony. Ask the judge for a body attachment (civil warrant) and they often "find" extra money after being hauled before a judge that explains they are about to spend a some time in jail.
I found out a month ago that my ex has reopened the child support. It retroactively went to 2014. I am $16,000 behind. Passport is suspended. I have a cruise booked for Dec 4-7. I have called several places about it. And no one seems to know the answer but tells me they think I should be good.... Read more »

I do not believe you will be able to leave or return with the passport suspended. If the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE)... Read more »

It sounds like you need to get divorced and get a custody/support order in place.
There are some potential issues with jurisdiction because she spends what looks like equal time in both states, but regardless, this is an issue you probably need to get in front of an attorney to figure out... Read more »
I've been dealing with physical pain and haven't been able to work and my son dosent want me in jail
answered on Aug 6, 2019
Support is paid to the child's primary custodian, and is owed to that person for financially supporting the child. Your son wouldn't be entitled to the back child support, his primary custodian would.
If your son was receiving benefits through some government assistance program,... Read more »
The custudy papers say the mother gets sole legal and physical custudy. It also states that his signature could be used in a single parent adoption he does pay child support.
answered on Aug 5, 2019
Unless his parental rights have specifically been terminated, he can probably still go back to court and prove a material change which would warrant him getting some visitation.
It depends on the specific language in the last custody order. If he wants to have visitation with the child, he... Read more »
She just went to court and lost custody of her two youngest children to her husband due to not passing urine or hair folicle test, and is now threatening to take me to court to raise my child support, can she do that?
answered on Jul 18, 2019
If the two children you're talking about are not your children, these issues are probably not related.
Are there other kids which you pay her support for? A change in a support obligation requires a material change in circumstances. Without knowing more, I cannot tell you whether she... Read more »

If its a debt based on written contract, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of breach. I'd have to know more about the circumstances to know for certain when the statute runs.
2 kids can my husband leave state with one of are two kids without permission and no interest in bring the child back
answered on Jul 17, 2019
You and your husband both have a constitutional right to access to the children until a court orders otherwise. If you think your husband is about to leave the state with one of your kids and never come back, you probably need to get something filed to prohibit him from doing that. I would... Read more »
He hasn’t payed it in years.
answered on Jul 7, 2019
He still owes that back child support. It is due to your son. You son can bring an action to enforce the payments, assuming dad has anything.
How do I proceed to take action? I do owe back pay due to incarceration, we court ordered every other weekend to have kids. She had em weekend before so it’s my weekend. She stating just cause she didn’t receive child support payment that I’m not getting kids on my weekend?
answered on Jan 6, 2019
She is violating the visitation order.
Visitation and child support are separate. That is, she had no right to stop visitation because you aren’t paying. Only the judge can modify the visitation.
She needs to go through the court/OCSE to address child support, not keep you... Read more »
As long as you pay for the phone can the parents of the one it was given to take it away. If they make the kid go with little food and don’t let them out to go anywhere but to school and if they mentally abuse the kid
answered on Dec 23, 2018
If the parents take it, what exactly would you want to happen?
If the child is being starved and mentally abused, why not use the phone to call DHS?
We got a divorce and the got back together and had the judge sign a paper that stopped it. But no one can find it and she told them we didn't so I have 32000 that shouldn't be there
answered on Dec 22, 2018
Without real proof that the modification occurred, you are going to be held responsible for the support amount.
If the judge signed an order it should've been filed. if there was a hearing there may be a transcript.
I have no rights. Her will not cooperate with me.

There isn't enough information given.
What do you mean by "pay child support?"
If you are the legal father and paying support (through an OCSE paternity action, court ordered child support from a divorce, etc.) you need to determine your custody/visitation situation.... Read more »

He doesn't understand the subject. If "signing away rights to avoid child support" was that simple, millions of dirtbags would do it.
It IS possible for a parent's child support obligation to terminate, but the situations are quite specific. For example, someone else... Read more »

When child support was set, did dad make sure OCSE was aware of the older dependent?
Whether the mother has a job or not, dad still owes support for minor children.
