I Petitioned for custody/ visitation. At the hearing the commissioner continued the case. Before she adjourned i requested a stay on a DCSS case i just discovered with no service attempt. Judge didnt rule on it but ordered the caseworker in court to serve me. How is this ok?

There are certain entries, as well--new children from other relationships, tax filing status, etc. Support does not change based on the age of a...Read more »

You have so many issues here that this is almost impossible to respond to through this medium. My first recommendation is to sit down with a local family law attorney that does a lot of custody issues in your area. You really need an expert's analysis of your specific problem.
This may be a little complex, but first request the production of all cancelled checks or cash payments receipts for rent for the period of time in question. Analyzing the requested information may require skills you do not currently possess, such as sequential numbers on printed receipts etc....Read more »

She will certainly have the right to request more support. I do not have any financial information that would allow me to indicate whether she would be successful or not, but considering he is already paying support it would seem likely.
The courts do not look into the reason why she wants...Read more »

Your right to make decisions regarding the terms of the supervised visitation; such as location, times, supervisor etc. are all governed by the terms of the custody order. You would have to read your custody orders to determine what options you have, or do not have.

You have parental rights. You have the right to custody and/or visitation. If you want those rights adjudicated; i.e. to get a court order, you will need to file a parentage action (aka paternity) and request child custody orders and support.
