You can do whatever you want, but you might as well just document this violation and then wait until August 11 to see if the documents were delivered as the lawyer said. If not THAT is the time to start moving against both of them.
You are, as I understand it, current then. But if you have a question about this situation, you probably should ask it in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > Illinois; it would have nothing to do with Florida law.
keep Sending her mother money to help support my daughter or should I wait until the court case is final. I just hate the fact that courts like to say any money sent for support of your child is considered a gift. Which I don’t think is fair. She uses my daughter as leverage to hurt me by not...

You should have a consultation with a family law attorney to find out what you can do to get more time sharing with your child. If you continue to provide support for your child, make sure to keep track of it and always put in the legend of any checks or money orders child support. Most JUSTIA...Read more »
The father did not follow court order of letting my child visit me, the court order child to visit mother; he is now an adult and I had no contact at all. Can the father be held on contempt of court? I have not seen my child for 6 years.
You should have brought this up with the court when it happened. It's quite possible that witnesses to what transpired have forgotten the details, so it is unlikely that contempt of court will be found.
I am up to date on all payments, I have no arrears, and my payments are deducted from my disability check each and every month on time. The other case is in Iowa and it was fraudulently done by my ex. What can I do to have the child support case in Iowa closed?
I recently served my ex-husband with papers requesting to move from Florida to Texas and he responded. Does Order denying mean I can't move? The Docket does not show the order so I can download it and review it and I have not received anything in the mail.
Whose lawyer? Yours or the other side? Mandatory disclosure of financial documents is REQUIRED for both parties. The deadlines are within 30 days o the case starting. Therefore, it is very possible that these documents are overdue. Here's the form with the list of all documents required to be...Read more »
My wife & I were in a poly amorous relationship with a woman who disappeared to TN & has very recently had a baby whom she says is mine. She is adamant she does not want me involved in any way & I have serious doubts but need to establish whether this child is actually mine. She has... Read more »
We got married in PR 7 years ago, while I was there we took the paperwork to Pr court to get a divorce but when they call me back to be present I was working here in Fl and wasn't able to go back at that time, case was annulled.

Yes, if the Puerto Rico divorce didn't result in a final judgment and was dismissed instead, you can file for divorce here in Florida. It may well be possible to do it without your wife being physically present.
Ex owes 15k+ in arrears. I feel that he is keeping this secret from his mother and fiance. I believe if they knew, they would get him to take care of his obligations. Would I get in any trouble if I somehow told them he hasn't been paying? He just got a house with his fiance and if I take him... Read more »
It's not completely clear what you are saying. The arrearage figure is negative $4,700; you paid too much? In that case, you should seek an order that the person who was paid the child support reimburse you.
For starters, baby daddy has seen his daughter twice in 6 years. One when she was 6 weeks and one when she was 6 months, I always threatened child support then he would always say he’d help out and never did. Knew it was his kid and acted like it was never his, finally got in contact with his... Read more »
Chances are that they are making empty threats, so don't get worried about it until they actually file suit. If the child has lived in Florida for at least six months, they would have to file in a Florida court. It would be very surprising if the court were to award the father primary custody.
For an example if I have like a six or $700 bill for my daughter from her doctor do me and him have to pay half of that or does it come out of the child support that he gives me for our child like it’s so confusing I know he pays child support for our daughter I just want to know if we get like a...

The short answer is never. The long answer is that children are usually not considered mature enough to be able to make adult decisions. One of the factors for determining the timesharing is: The reasonable preference of the child, if the court deems the child to be of sufficient intelligence,...Read more »
