I am in OK. My ex is in GA (where our divorce was, but he's in a different county). My oldest son went to live with him and I kept my youngest so we had new papers drawn up. The support order was calculated on both of our incomes of course but as mine was lower, the order only shows that he... Read more »
The best advice is always going to be: "Use an attorney." I'm not sure how the attorney was at fault in your question. If the child support order had been signed, the case was, in effect, over. The attorney would not do anything else once the case was over. If you are stating...Read more »
You will need to contact an Arkansas attorney to determine what collection remedies are available in that state. In Georgia, if there is a judgment for the child support, that can be garnished from a bank account.
If either divorced parent spends the night with their new partner. No cohabitation is happening. Each parent has their own address separate from their current partner. Ware county, pierce county, Brantley county.
I gave birth to our son at the end of 2019. We ended our relationship in 2020 and he hasn't really contributed financially since then. I opened a child support case in January 2021, how long the does child support process usually take?
How long the process takes will depend on his response. If he acknowledges paternity right away and is a w-2 employee with regular income, it can be a fairly routine process. However, if he requests a dna test or disputes the presumptive amount of child support requested, that may delay the...Read more »
My ex ended up claiming the kids on taxes and received all the COVID relief money 1st, 2nd, and it looks like the 3rd. Below is the history and im looking for who is the rightful owner of this. Also Ive tried discussing it with the other party several times and the reply i get is "not up for... Read more »
If you have primary custody, you can claim the children as dependents. You can't do anything about the COVID relief money. If your ex owes you child support since September, you can file a contempt for that.
My husband has spent the last 2 years living separately from me at a rehab facility that is faith based. He lives and breathes this place, however some situations have occurred and the lack of structure, control and a system in general to confirm the sobriety of these individuals, their criminal...

I'm not sure what your actual question is. Is it will he be able to take the child to his facility outings? If so, it depends on if it is an appropriate environment for the child, and it sounds as if it is not.
Where you married to the mother or have you legitimized the child? If the answer is no to both then you have to legal rights to the child and she can do that. In that case, you will need to legitimize the child. Once you do that you will be able to seek a custody arrangement that will give you the...Read more »
My kids’ dad found out he had an 11yr old son 2 years ago. He was told that he was not the father at first. That someone else was and he even has the other guys name. February 2019 was when he found out the truth. He is now 13 and he’s been giving his mother money since then. He also gives her... Read more »
He will not have to pay "back" child support but the mother can ask for expenses of child rearing until there is an Order in place for child support. We would be happy to assist in getting the case situated to minimize his exposure. More importantly, we need to get his child legitimized...Read more »
i have lived with my mom since my parents got divorced. i have thought about running away so many times. she always yells at me and is always super mean to me and my brother. im 14, and my brother is 10. we both want to live with our dad. but he is really far behind in child support.
I’m sorry to that you are not happy at home with your mom. At 14 you can’t just run away and decide where to live. Your dad could consult with an attorney to see if there are options for him to get primary custody. Try talking to your mom about the problems and see if it helps.
There are numerous factors that go into determining child support. Owning a business isn’t going to necessarily hurt or help you, it all depends on the factors when child support is determined. You income and expenses will be considered whether you own a business or work for someone who does.
It's possible. Some people hide income in the business in various ways. For example, using the business account for personal expenses or paying a lower salary intentionally to suppress income. If you don't already, get a CPA to audit your books and verify your income.
