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 »

I have my signed decree that states, "Support alimony payments shall only terminate if Petitioner remarries". My ex-wife informed me she has remarried effective 5 March 2020. I have paid the amount in full as required for March. When April rolls around do I require a court injunction... Read more »
It states that we can’t file to modify until the 18 months is up. That is coming up. She lives in ND and i live in OK. How will support be calculated for 2 children now that i am making less and in a different state?
I wouldn't do that because if the other parent thinks you have extra money they could try and double cross you and modify support later and you could end up owning more. I have seen this happen before. Other attorneys may have a different opinion but that would be my opinion.
If the support order is in Kansas and you do not owe anything (including not owning any interest) I would encourage you to contact an attorney in Kansas to help you terminate the support order. If everything is paid off you should be able to get it resolved pretty quick.
My child support case is open in Lawton, Oklahoma but i reside in Oklahoma city, Ok now? Would i need to go back to lawton to have him removed or can i do it through oklahoma city oklahoma since the child support case is still in oklahoma state

If all he is worried about is the support then he needs to file for a modification with the DHS office that is handling the support. However, another option would be to file for modification of custody and child support because that will change the legal custody as well as readdress the child...Read more »

If I owe and am paying on back due child support, but custody is modified and I am now the primary caregiver and am awarded child support by the other party, does the child support I am to receive have to go towards my back child support?
Custody and Support while are often connected are technically separate items. In most cases the Child Support is also modified at the time of the custody modification (assuming that was done through the court and not merely by agreement). If you did not do the modification through the court, then...Read more »
child support originated. Maryland is still collecting child support from Oklahoma and sending to Georgia. Is there anyway I can get those payments sent straight to Georgia from Oklahoma where I currently live. And if my daughter is 21 years old, am I still obligated to pay back child support and...

You would have to request the case to be transferred to Oklahoma, which may or may not be allowed. As far as the back support - that will still be required because that is money that you were obligated to pay for the raising of your child.
There is a credit for other biological children in the home but it really is not that much of a deduction. As a general rule having more kids does not significantly reduce the support owed for the first child.
First, don't agree to any support order without first conducting genetic testing to make sure the child is yours. If this has already happened there may or may not be something that can be done now. It is very fact dependant so schedule a consultation with an attorney asap to learn your options.
My daughter is 20 and lives with me. I've been paying child support on her since the support order was put in place. The only exception to that was a 4 year period of incarnation, which is why I have arrears. She doesn't receive any of the arrears, but she hates that I'm still having... Read more »
In most cases there is still a child support obligation when parents share 50/50 custody. Support is based on the incomes of the parents and also the amount of overnight visits. Sometimes the support amount comes out to zero and sometimes it is more than that. The only way to know what the...Read more »
