Mark Oakley's answer Without an agreement, the courts calculate the child support amount according to a guidelines chart, based upon the combined gross monthly income of both parents. That gross income number determined the amount of money it takes per month for parents at that income level to raise the child(ren) (the more children, the greater the number). Then each parent is assigned their proportionate share of that number. The parent having primary physical custody does not pay their share to anyone, as...
Homer P Jordan IV's answer There are facts to your case that need to be reviewed in detail in order to provide you with direction. You should consult with an attorney who can review the facts of the case and present you with the options. You may be able to do so, but without knowing the details in depth it is difficult to say or provide direction. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Homer P Jordan IV's answer No, you can't. Until you are 18 years old you will have to live where your parents want you to. Once you t urn 18 you can legally make the decisions on where you want to live and can move out of the home. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Homer P Jordan IV's answer There is no set person that has to take over responsibility for a parent who has had a stroke. Assuming the parent has a good relationship with their children they would likely step up to help, but they are not required to by law. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Homer P Jordan IV's answer You should consult with an attorney who can review the facts of your case and help you plan the proper course of action. I'm sorry to hear about your wife passing. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Amanda Bowden Houser's answer You need to not make any statements to police or DSS and lawyer up. You can likely thank that ridiculous #metoo movement for all the fuss over a 7 year old boy touching a girl on the bus but yes, if the girl's story can not be immediately and conclusively disproved, suspensions, police and DSS involvement are all normal these days. If you are financially well off expect a civil suit as well. Bottom line, if he touched her in an inappropriate way, that was likely criminal and instead of it...
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You would engage in discovery regarding your divorce. You can do a number of things, including a request for production, a request for admissions, interrogatories, and the taking of depositions. Did you review the online docket of the lawsuit in Hernando County?
Joseph Jaap's answer An attorney would have to review the child support order and what it says about health insurance payments. If you pay what you can to spread out the $500, a court would take that into consideration. But use the Find a Lawyer tab to consult a local family law attorney.
Kathryn Hilbush's answer It sounds like you need representation in PA as well as in NC. I suggest that you contact an experienced family law attorney in the PA county where the child was residing when placed in care. This is a long and tedious process and having representation can often get things moving faster.
Nelson Jose Francisco Alvarez-Aponte's answer Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. No child support does not automatically end when you turn twenty one. The person paying the child support must file a motion in court requesting that the child support order be eliminated. Child support payments must continue until the court issues a ruling on the matter.
M. Nicole Clooten's answer Unless you had some sort of contract, preferably in writing, you would have a difficult time getting a judgment against, which is required in order to get a writ of garnishment. I would contact an attorney that specializes in contract law if you think that the intent of both of was to pay you back, and you have some sort of proof of that.
Mr. James Parrish Coleman's answer If the father's name is on the birth certificate, and if there has never been a court proceeding setting out custodial and visitation arrangements, the father cannot take the kids out of school. Mom needs to get into Court and have both child support and custody set out in a court order. Don't play at this. Get a lawyer in your county and get into court.
