I signed away my rights so my child could be adopted. But it didn't happen and they came after me for support. I hardly survive on my check. But years later had another child and when we went to court the judge said since I had a child and I was disabled they should not pursue the matter any... Read more »
You'll have to try to work it out with the child support enforcement agency. Give them a copy of whatever order the judge signed regarding your child support. But that might not get them to give you the stimulus money if you had arrears.
I have message dated back from when i was trying to reach out and be in my son life but she wasn’t allowing me too i didn’t have any contact with unless she called me which was blocked and out the blue she totally cut me away from him I’m paying child support now but I’m currently in court...

Child support and child custody are separate matters. You cannot withhold support if you are not seeing the child, and you cannot withhold the child if you are not receiving support. If there is a violation of either support or child custody, the correct procedure is to file a motion to show cause....Read more »

You can petition the court for an allocation of parental rights and responsibilities and, so long as paternity really has been established (via court approved genetic testing, or an affidavit of paternity, not a random genetic test) and unless the current custodian can prove that you are an unfit...Read more »
The father (my husband) had residential custody of his 12 yr old. We just found out that he has been paying (it says back)child support since 2016 for her but she was with us (2013ish) till last year. He did try and get child support for his daughter but they ignored his request. She never paid for... Read more »
I have a son who will be turning 23 soon. My daughter turned 21 recently. There has never been a child support court order. Their mother and I were never married.

It's unusual for you to have a child support order if you are still married. There is usually only an order if you filed for divorce and the court issued a temporary order of support. We can answer this question better if you say who filed for support.

Ohio does not allow emancipation for your situation. Minors are not allowed to live on their own. If your parents were never married, and your father never obtained parental rights from the court, then your mother has sole legal custody. Talk to a family member, teacher, or other trusted adult,...Read more »

If you are living with the mother then the only reason there would be a child support order is if she applied for public assistance and stated that you were not residing with her. If the two of you are residing together you can ask the court to terminate the order or at least waive the arrearage.
My wife requested that I relinquish the rights to my daughter so that she can get better benefits and I wouldn't have to pay support. We live in Ohio. This doesn't sound right. Everything I have found says she would need someone to adopt and I would never see my baby again. Also I would... Read more »
Likely because there is a child support order that has been issued. Did you get notice from CSEA? If the two of you are still living together then child support would not be proper. If you're living separately, then the order will issue as it will be assumed that you are not providing...Read more »
You have to file a memorandum of jurisdiction with the Ohio Supreme Court asking them to take the case. Supreme Court Cases are very different because you first have to convince the court to take the case, then win it.

Ohio recently changed its child support calculation, and tax laws also have changed. He should use the Find a Lawyer tab and retain a local family law attorney to review the finances and other facts, re-run the support calculation, and advise him.
They have been talking about wanting a baby I have done everything I can to keep them apart. But he sneaks out. If they get pregnant do I have to pay support for the baby? She will be 18 in May 2020 and he will be 18 in September 2020.
Unless she is pregnant already, the baby would be born after both are 18, and no longer minors. She would pay medical expenses for the delivery, then she can file for him to pay child support until the child reaches age 18.
I have a family who would be willing to let me live with them bc they have known the long history of her abuse, and have encouraged me to leave. I graduate from High school in 3 months, is his even realistic for me to do? Can I do this legally and how can I keep her from bothering me or trying to... Read more »
Talk to a teacher, school counselor, or other trusted adult about your situation. When you are 18, you are no longer a minor. If you leave, will you still have health insurance, car insurance, other support?
In a dissolution, the parties largely get to control the terms of the agreement. But, all domestic relations courts require that you disclose a wide variety of information and complete all of their required forms.
To get visitation or parental rights related to your daughter, it will depend on how your child support obligation was created. If she went through CSEA directly to get a child support obligation set up (i.e. the administrative process, not in a court), then unfortunately you will almost certainly...Read more »
