Terrence H Thorgaard's answer If it is a Puerto Rican child support order, you should ask this question in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Puerto Rico › Child Support ›. If it is from a Florida court, and the order is silent about attending college, no, you would not continue to pay child support after her 18th birthday.
B. Elaine Jones' answer Yes you can claim your personal medical insurance as an allowable deduction. There is a spot in the very beginning of the Financial Affidavit for your medical insurance not the children. Look at the Financial Affidavit and read it carefully. Hope this helped. Good luck.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer No one is going to check or challenge your numbers. If you have done the calculations and you both agree to the number then you can agree. Child support is always modifiable until the child turns 18 so if there is an error it can be corrected.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer The judge is not going to check it. Ask to see the worksheet in advance. You can look for a lawyer that will give you a free consultation and verify the numbers. There are also free child support calculators online. Although they may not be exact you will be able to confirm that the number is in the correct ballpark.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer You can file for child support after you and the child have made Florida your permanent residence for more than six months. You are not required to have an attorney but you may find it helpful.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Unless you do something to prove you are supporting your son who lives with his mother in Florida you will probably end up receiving a final order requiring you to pay additional support. You should contact a lawyer who practices law in Florida, preferably in the city where the new case id being opened (probably here in Tallahassee).
Rand Scott Lieber's answer Child support is calculated by a formula in the law based on each of the parent's net incomes and the number of children. There are free child support calculators available online if you have the numbers to enter.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer It would depend upon whether the funds are immediately payable to the obligor (person who owes the child support) by the estate. Post your question in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Texas › for more details.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer Legally you are responsible for child support that accrued while the child lived with mom. Why has support going forward been stopped? If mom were to have a support obligation now that might be able to be used to offset your arrearage. Mom could also agree to waive the arrearage.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer If the entity that enforces child support in your jurisdiction has notified the IRS about the arrearage then they can seize your refund. If this has happened or is happening you should receive a letter from the IRS notifying you about the situation.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer It is always better to have the advice of a lawyer. Child support is based on the parent's net incomes so you will both be required to complete an up to date financial affidavit. Those numbers will then be used to calculate child support, which is a statutory formula.
Regarding relocation, the father can move wherever he wants but he cannot relocate the children more than 50 miles without yours or the court's permission.
Denise Martinez-Scanziani's answer It is doubtful there would be liability. You would first have to establish the clerk has a duty to maintain accurate records. It appears you’re asking about holding the clerk civilly liable for this error. I recommend you post your question to a civil lawyer since you’re not seeking to seek damages against the obligee.
From the family law standpoint, modification after emancipation is not usually permitted since the court loses jurisdiction.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer Child support must always be calculated. In addition to equal timesharing the formula uses each parent's net income. Unless both parents earn the exact same income and have the exact same deductions with 50/50 there will always be a child support number.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer No, probably not. Child support is to benefit the child. Therefore such a waiver very well might hold up, should she seek to avoid it. I suggest that you refuse, absent a court order.
