If it is a South Dakota case, the person inquiring needs to speak with an attorney licensed in South Dakota. If this was a Nebraska case, the party would likely be able to reopen enforcement of unpaid judgment established by a court order for child support.
If you already have a child support case through the courts that case needs to be listed/identified in the divorce filings so the Court is aware of it. It generally makes the most sense for clarity and future modification needs to have both custody/parenting time and child support ordered under the...Read more »
He is 18, but my husband is paying child support until he is 20 as long as he is a full-time student. We are trying to rekindle the relationship, but so far it has gone nowhere and his mother is not helping. He is in high school for the next few months and are confident that he will finish. My...

Normally, the child support stops after high school if the child is already 18, so the support should end, but you should show your paperwork to an attorney who can give you advise. As the child is 18, he is an adult and is free to decide for himself whether he wants to have a relationship with...Read more »
You can charge him rent if he is living in your house but you say he has abandoned the mother. If that is the case then the mother needs to pursue child support from the father, which she can share with you for expenses.
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?
Current on support for my 18 year old son (turned 18 Jan 2020). What steps do I take once he graduates from High School in May 2020? Does the High School provide graduation proof? Is there anything I have to submit?
In Indiana both parents are to have equal standing before a court when it is making determinations on child custody. The primary determining factor for custody decisions is what is in the best interests of the child.
Is it legal for him to buy weed? Not the last time I checked, no.
What do you mean "set up another person"? Plant it on the other person, or sell it to that person? Of course not. But if the other person (the mother of his children, perhaps?) is caught with it perhaps your text message...Read more »
I read that many states do deviate from guidelines when NCP has other children to care for or other support orders (for children not on case). Does ASUME deviate or consider the other children as an expense or credit?
My PA support order originally covered both of my daughters but my eldest turned 18 in 2018, at which time she was no longer covered under PA law. Both myself and my ex, along with my youngest daughter all now reside in NY. The order was never transferred from PA to NY, but was modified in 2018... Read more »
You may want to consider contacting one of the bar associations in New Jersey (such as the Mercer County Bar Association). Depending on your specific circumstances, that organization may be able to connect you to a lawyer who offers discounted legal services.
If my ex and mother to my children, moves into her grandparents house (with her grandparents) and now has no bills other than car insurance, can I get my child support lowered? I pay $580 a month and I feel as if that is a bit much if she will no longer have any responsibilities other than food and... Read more »
