birth cert etc to have my job stop sending child support as it was suppose to stop onces turn 18 or graduates and the child has done both. Its a non ivd case in Georgia and the obligation has been met per support order
No, child support is payable to the custodial parent (your mother in this case); not the child. It might be possible if the mother assigns her rights to you or (if she's dead) if you are her personal representative.
In FL, they do "timesharing" and I have seen things that say what the courts consider when making those decisions. What i am wanting to know is how can I get enough timesharing that the child lives with me and I am not on child support? I want the mother to have visitation but ultimately the child... Read more »
Sorry, but unless you can find a circuit court judge in your area who is willing to give you full custody you will probably never be able to avoid paying some reasonable amount of child support to the mother of your child. FYI, judges rarely award full custody to either parent--unless there is some...Read more »
You do not mention whether the child support order is from Florida. Assuming that it is a Florida order, if you did not go back to court for enforcement prior to your daughter's emancipation it may be too late to collect. His new wife and her profession have nothing to do with you collecting child...Read more »
The court considers children based on their order of birth. The oldest child is considered first for child support calculations. You do not mention if you are married to any of the mothers. You will need to explain to the court what you are paying in support, whether it is court ordered or not. You...Read more »
When I got divorced last year my ex agreed to pay $1500 in child support so I could keep the house because he didn’t want it. I was just served papers that he is trying to lower his child support claiming that our current incomes allow for a 15% or more decrease. Neither of our incomes have... Read more »
I initiated a request for child support thru DCF and because my ex lives in Texas, the case was sent there for enforcement. However his hearing was deferred because he said he was filling for divorce, yet he never did. This occurred back in April. I never received any official paperwork from the... Read more »
If you have lived in Florida for more than six months then you can file for divorce in Florida, even if he lives in Texas. An issue that could arise is did he file for divorce in Texas before you filed in Florida. Regardless, the children's issues will be resolved in Florida if that is where the...Read more »
There is no legal correlation between visitation and child support...You can petition the Court to enforce your visitation rights with the child...However, as an aside, I would start paying some child support before moving to assert your visitation claims...
If i am paying my monthly child support amount, and i sill have quite a bit of back child support to pay; will they take more money out of my 2nd job to satisfy my back child support? They take my tax returns for back child support, and half of my paychecks for my children from my full time job. I... Read more »
I pay child support regularly and my child’s mother keeps asking me to send her money via money order everyday and I always send her the money but she never lets me visit or spend time with my daughter.
You need to go to court and ask for a parenting plan which will specify when the child is supposed to spend time with you. Then if she refuses you can go back to court and ask the judge for help. You should also have a specific amount of child support to pay each month, not whenever she asks for...Read more »
divorced, child support was agreed at 600$ per month one child, 9 months later he is starting vpk - child care cost is less, i have had twins in another relationship, i get him more now than agreed upon in the final judgement. can we file papers to modify to 300$ per month? with these reasons? are... Read more »
Any agreements that you make for modification should be in writing and signed by both parents. As long as you are making the child support payments there really isn't any scrutiny. The problem arises when one of you goes to court later and complains that the child support was "too much" or "not...Read more »
My question is.. My dad was married, but separated for close to or over a decade or so... His wife claims to have no time or wanted to take time to deal with his funeral arrangements with cost or anything...

However she decided to move in with her father back in MD. I am custodual parent and he pays court ordered child support and we have court ordered... Read more »
Technically, is the child considered his, even though she is/ was married? Is she entitled to child support and what rights does he have? He received an administrative letter from Tallahassee saying a child support case was opened. That was a few months back, have not heard anything since. He has... Read more »
IMO, at best all your husband can do at this point is to sue in a circuit court seeking determination of paternity. That would be a good place to raise the issue of the mother's marriage--although her being married does not automatically mean that your husband is not the child's father. Before...Read more »
