Child support in Florida is always modifiable until the child emancipates. Subsequently born children are not a reason to modify. However, since you have never been to court for child support perhaps you should first speak to mom about a reduction. If you do go to court you will receive credit for...Read more »

I owe my child's mother back child support. I was paying her for years through Western Union and she wasn't reporting it.

In many States the custodial person can sign an affidavit stating they have received the money and there isn't anymore due; however, it will depend on whether there is any money due the State for medicaid recovery, etc. You can check the State's child support website for more information.

Taking a parent's right is not as easy as it sounds, but it is a serious and complicated matter. If the hearing is in Florida, I suggest that you consult and hire a family law attorney who will be able to help you.

We can certainly file a motion with the court to clarify the issue of interest and terminate what they are taking. We can also ask the judge to consider having them reimburse you for funds that were taken against the court order. Please schedule a free consultation at 407-878-5942.

Hi. My mother passed away unexpectedly and she was receiving back support payments from my father. I am a adult. Am I able to claim those payments or what will happen now? I live in a different state however the child support case is in Florida.
You generally need to return to the court that issued the child support order for a modification. If your child support order is from NJ and the child still lives in NJ then you should consult with a NJ lawyer.
The mother lives in Texas and she has custody of the child. He comes during the summer and every other winter break. The father and I (father’s girlfriend) moved in together recently.

You do not say whether the child support order is from Texas or Florida. In Florida, child support is based on each parent's income and does not include a subsequent partner's income. If the order is from Texas then you will need to ask a Texas attorney.

Even if your attorney has moved to withdraw, she is still obligated to respond to this motion until her motion is granted. Condition your consent to withdrawal upon your being given sufficient time to find another attorney and for that attorney to respond to the pending motion.
Apparently in 2017 my husband had a court date for missing a couple child support payments. He never received any type of notification.

This sounds like a contempt issue where the child support purge was set to allow him to "purge" himself of the contempt by paying $696. There are definitely options such as setting a hearing on the purge, filing a motion to set aside the original contempt order, or simply paying the purge amount....Read more »
