Terrence H Thorgaard's answer If the Puerto Rican child support order provides that child support ends when he graduates from high school, I believe that the Florida courts would have to give full faith and credit to the Puerto Rican court order. Therefore yes, your child support obligation would be finished.
Mr Eric Klein's answer The answer to your question is not so simple, you have a complex situation. What you will need to do is disestablish paternity with your husband and establish paternity with the child’s biological father. Once you establish paternity with the biological father, then you can avoid completing the child support guidelines. Without going through this process, a judge will not allow the divorce to go through. Good luck
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You might want to rephrase your question so that it can be understood (Who took what kind of property? Did they take it pursuant to a court order or as a secured party? And what do you mean by "file a seizure of property"?) , and ask it in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Alabama ›, because it appears to relate to the law of that state.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer This answer assumes that you are in court in Florida, not Ohio. The court should do the math regarding what was previously owed and what will be owed going forward. You should receive credit for any balance due and owing to you on the effective date of the modification.
Generally, child support is payable to the custodial parent, not the child. So if he pays the child directly it probably won't count. But to be sure, post your question at Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Tennessee › Family Law ›.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer No, you can't, directly, do anything about it. Child support is payable to the custodial parent. If your mother is not getting the child support that your father should be paying, she has remedies.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Assuming she is the youngest child, is she going to graduate before her next birthday? Is she still your dependent? If so, you need to ask the court to extend the order so that the father will be required to continue paying child support.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer Average your income over as long a period of time that you can but do not include the time that you were not working. If you know that you will go back to 40 hours in January then you need to tell that to the court.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer Generally you cannot restrict timesharing because of monetary issues. If you go back to court on the child support issue you can bring to the court's attention that he has money to go on out of state vacations.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer The mother would have had to file a paternity case against you to establish that you are the father. If that happened then it is possible that you would have a child support obligation.
Rand Scott Lieber's answer You can tell the court tomorrow what you believe his earning potential is. It is possible that the court will set a status conference in the future. If not then you will need to request another hearing when you know about his new earnings.
