You need to file a Petition for Paternity in your local court to protect your rights. The court will consider what has happened over the past four years when it decides on a timesharing plan for the child. Child support is a right of the child and will be ordered based on each parent's net incomes...Read more »
You appear to be asking whether a child support order from a court in Puerto Rico "is the same" as child support orders from other states and territories of the United States. It would depend on what you mean by "the same".

Have you spoken with mom and dad about temporary custody? It doesn't sound like you are biologically related to the children. Where are mom and dad's parents? You should consult with a local attorney regarding your options.
More information is needed to formulate an answer to your statement! For example, what is the effective date on your support order? Are you being charged arrears? I suggest you consult with a local attorney to help you figure it out. Good luck!

You don't give much information; what does what mean? A lawsuit is started by service of notice (process) on the defendant (the person being sued). If you have been defaulted, you must have failed to do something (such as filing a response to the complaint filed against you). A default means...Read more »

Has the child's mother objected to your claiming the child as a dependent? If not, if you are paying child support pursuant to a court order, and the order is silent regarding who may claim the child, what you have been told is correct: you don't have to pay the mother a portion of your income tax...Read more »
Current agreement says “as long as child is in need of daycare” I no longer need him to go to daycare as they don’t either when she can be with me. However they want me to continue paying for half for the two days when he could be spending that time with me.
"As long as child is in need of daycare" is rather vague. If the child is in daycare and you have contracted to pay half, then you have an obligation to pay your half. If there is no daycare expense, you should not have to pay. If you and the other party are able to communicate, you should discuss...Read more »
Spouse filled out the worksheet and it seems very wacky. Somehow he calculated it as $60 bucks per kid. He makes about 6K a month and I make about 9K.

You should definitely get an attorney to help you collect on the money that you are owed. The court can order the father to get a job "on the books", they can order sanctions and contempt, they can order incarceration if he does not pay. Simply allowing him to get away with it, doesn't help you or...Read more »
Why don't you sell the property and pay your current and future child support? Child support is typically paid with currency. Sounds like you're not paying through the state. If that is the case, if the other parent is willing to accept the property and convert it into cash for child support, then...Read more »
Someone posted an extremely large cash bail for me in Florida ($20k+). They are worried that NJ child support will try and take the bail money. They are considering rescinding the bail before court. The charge is completely unrelated to child support. The person did have to sign something stating... Read more »
I’d be very surprised if a NJ child support judgment could reach a FLORIDA criminal bail bond, particularly when you’re not even the depositor. The fines and costs they’re talking about relate to the criminal case you’re out on bond for.
