The answer is that you can only completely do away with child support if the parents have equal residential responsibility of a child and incomes which result in a child support obligation of $75 or less and you are granted court approval. Otherwise, the only way to get anywhere not having an... Read more »

Without a court order, neither has many rights (if any) at all. Time to file a custody proceeding.

Although you cannot avoid taxes, you may want to look into trusts in South Dakota.
My ex recieved a letter from the court stating that they would not sign off on the child support because its lower than the calculated amount
answered on Feb 4, 2020
You need to use the child support guidelines to calculate the correct amount and resubmit.

Child support is difficult to modify, but a stipulated order may do the trick if you are now residing in the same household and sharing expenses.

You would need to write up and file with the Court a written Stipulation reflecting what provisions of the Judgment you've agreed to modify. Both parties would need to sign and notarize the Stipulation. You then need to prepare and file a proposed Order and a proposed Amended Judgment.
We were living in oklahoma from April 2017 to April 2018. My children's dad and I decided to move back up to North Dakota. And he went back to Oklahoma for work and we ended up splitting up a month and a half later. He's threatened to take the kids away from me in the past. He raped me... Read more »

Your question has multiple factors that cannot be adequately answered without a full consultation.
However, general speaking, a parent may bring a custody dispute in ND if the child lives in ND. To protect your parental rights, you may want to file for a judicial order that gives you... Read more »
He isn't letting her, see, talk, or know anything of her child well-being. The are unmarried, and both on birth certificate.

Like most legal answers, it really depends. What state are they living in? Is there an Order/Judgment in place? In North Dakota, if there isn't anything in place, he has as much of a right to the child as the mother does. That being said, he should not keep the child from her. There are... Read more »
We are wondering if we both help support our daughter in every way but dont live together.
We both dont want help from child support and want to do this ourselves and not ask for state help can we?
answered on Mar 23, 2018
If you are going through a custody battle, the second it goes into court there will be child support established. Whether you want it to be established or not will not matter to the court. Why? Because the state considers child support the right of the child, not the parents. The only way to avoid... Read more »
Mom has been receiving the money and hasn’t given my son any of it. He has been living in North Dakota for 2 yrs, supporting himself. How can I stop the child support (close the case) and can I sue his mother to get back the money that belonged to taking care of him.

Bring an application in the court that entered the order.
In 2012 judge granted me to relocate to TN from FL w/daughter. In 2014 we moved to ND, her dad was fine with. Our son that stayed w/dad has flown up here many times.

It never hurts to consult an attorney. The laws on moves out-of-state vary between states and so it is important to know where he brought his motion. You should probably call an attorney in the state he brought the motion to see what your options are.
Why do fathers have no right or avenues to have equal rights when it comes to the child? I am married with two other kids with my current wife. I would like my child support for my oldest lowered or have equal custody so I can take care of the needs of all my children. Instead of giving the mom... Read more »

Even with equal residential responsibility, the person who makes more money will still be required to pay the other child support.
answered on Jan 16, 2018
No. Child support is according to court order and the child support guidelines.
I have 2 children one of them is my ex husbands, the second was born while i was still married but is not his, can i be denied child support for my oldest who is his because my 2nd child isnt his but the state is saying my 2nd is his because i was still married even though ive expressed shes not....

Each minor child is entitled to child support. Generally, whether you were married when the child is born is merely a factor for the court to consider. The court will also consider whether a person other than the paternal father held out the child as his own child and acted in the capacity as... Read more »
I believe it's unfair to the father. The mother didn't know who the father was but now the state coming after you for child support and you didn't even know
My mom doesn't want me to live with my dad because then she will have to pay child support and she only wants me to stay so she can use the money she gets from him for rent.

Although I am sure you feel at the middle of this issue, the legal issue here is between your parents. If your parent wants to make a motion based on your wishes (in this case, your father), that is up to your parent.
We had an agreement but he has not paid nor contacted or seen her in two years I’m scared the courts will allow him to have her when she has no clue who he is if I file child support
answered on Dec 19, 2017
I run into issues like this frequently in my practice. Your first step is to contact an attorney. His odds of getting custody cannot be predicted and you should not listen to any attorney who guarantees an outcome, which is an ethics violation.
I currently live and work in North Dakota. I pay child support for one child in Indiana & two in Michigan. Currently I am behind on both cases by a significant amount.
