Terrence H Thorgaard's answer It has nothing to do with Florida law, so you should ask this in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Minnesota › Child Support ›. But if there is a child support order in place, you would normally abide by the terms of that order.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Certainly, but for the particulars of New Jersey law on the subject, you should post in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › New Jersey › Child Support ›. In most places, child support and visitation don't depend on each other at all; a parent can be made to pay child support whether or not he gets any visitation.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer You first have to determine the cost for the children only. Once you have that number the person paying the premium should not be receiving credit for more than they are paying. One possible method is to divide the children's portion of the premium by 3 so that one father pays 2/3 and the other pays 1/3.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer That depends where the money is now. If they are still holding it and the court ordered that you do not owe it then you can get it back. If it was already sent to the payee and the court said that you do not owe it then you need to take the payee back to court to try and recover it.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Probably (assuming the child support was supposed to be paid to you as the custodian of the child, and he was the person who was supposed to pay child support), but you really should have asked your question in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Pennsylvania ›, because it pertains to Pennsylvania law, not Florida law.
Veronica LaVerne Robinson's answer You could file a Petition to Establish Paternity, Timesharing, and Child Support in family court so that you can obtain time and rights to your child if there is no legal DCF case. If there is a legal DCF case, then you can ask for custody in the DCF court.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer As far as custody is concerned, the judge in Minnesota was referring to the Uniform Child Custody and Jurisdiction Act, which is law in both Minnesota and Florida. There is an exception, however, when neither party to the original custody decree is still in the state where the custody decree was entered. Thus, since neither parent still lives in Minnesota, the Florida courts could entertain an action to modify custody.

David Alfred Carroll's answer Child support in either place if you going through the Department of revenue. He can go to the local Florida Department of revenue child support enforcement office and their staff will guide you. Typically if the case must be litigated in Puerto Rico, then Florida will gather your information, and send it to their sister agency in Puerto Rico to process the child support. If you want to litigated yourself, then you would need to speak with an experienced local family law attorney to determine...
David Alfred Carroll's answer Please look at Florida statute chapter 61.13 which outlines the factors and considerations the court will look at the making a determination of the appropriate parenting plan and time-sharing for the parents. A verbal agreement is fine as long as the parties continue to agree. It is better to have a written agreement, and even better to have a fully formed parenting plan and or court order. You may want to speak with an experienced local family law attorney to see what they suggest and help...
If you file your income tax return as "married filing jointly" (which usually is the best way to file), and if the tax refund is garnished, the IRS has a form you can file; it's called an "injured spouse" form. That should enable you to get your portion of the refund.
David Alfred Carroll's answer You can contact the Florida Department of Revenue directly to see how the money you are paying is being handled. Typically, child support belongs to the child. Therefore, it cannot be interfered with by the court. However there are many exceptions when it comes down to child support, and it may be possible that the money is being redirected in some manner. Instead of relying on the mother to provide you with information, you should get it on your own from the department of revenue, that way you...
David Alfred Carroll's answer If you strongly believe your child is in danger, then you may want to reach out to the Florida Department of Children and Families for help. You make a report to the phone number 1-800-96ABUSE. Getting DCF involved can be good or bad and you need to independently waive those options and see what's best for your family.
You should speak with an experienced local family law attorney, one that has dealt with child abuse, and see about enforcement or modification of custody. If you are the...
Rand Scott Lieber's answer Unless your mother got a judgment before you turned 18 she probably cannot recover past due child support so many years later. Since child support was owed to the parent if you are the child you have no standing (independent right) to collect past due child support.
