My kids and I used to live in NJ but have been living in FL for 3yrs now. My ex husband lives in New York. My child support case has been active in NJ for many years...how can I transfer my child support to our home state of FL to request a modification?
You can file the modification in the jurisdiction where you currently live in Florida. You will need to include a copy of the NJ order on child support that you are asking to modify. A local family lawyer can help you with this.
If you were never married, the mother has full timesharing (custody) rights to the child until the father goes to court on a paternity action. An administrative order that determined paternity and established child support does not automatically address timesharing (custody). The father's name...Read more »

You need to file something with the court asking for what you want. If you want to increase child support or reduce timesharing then it is a modification. If you want to enforce something then it is a motion for enforcement.
No modification can be effective before a motion is filed with the court. Generally, a wage earner is expected to continue to earn at the same level as they have historically, even if they lose their job. If you are the payor and her income decreases it could actually mean that you pay less, not...Read more »
I have answered several of your questions this morning, but I can't give you a reliable answer to this one. I don't know if the instructions tell you to attach paystubs and receipts or not. I suggest you consult with an attorney practicing family law in the Florida county where this...Read more »
I have a Florida child support order that says my ex is to pay $1200/month. However, he only pays around $400/month. There is an income deduction order, but for whatever reason the support is not being deducted from his paycheck. He moved to NJ & is working out there. Should I register the... Read more »
You do not need to involve the NJ court. Your local Florida child support enforcement entity can help you. Contact the court where you live and notify them of his new employment. They will make sure that NJ receives the IDO.
I've received a letter from the Clerk of Courts over a month ago stating arrears are paid in full. Therefore the case is closed with the Dept. if Revenue. I've looked up the case order online the case status is consent judgement not closed!
Court ordered payments through child support office , but no money since February. I called DOR and was informed that they were told payor told them that they are sending money directly to me, no proof ever given.
No call made to me and I was told to file a motion is this legal?
You need to file a motion saying that you are not receiving the child support. Once in court it will be payors burden to prove that direct payments were made. If the court order says payments through state disbursement unit then that is where payor should be sending payments, not directly to you.
per his passport, he is self employed, teaching English to Thai online, with his LLC and moved out of country from 11/2017-06/2020. He has been back and forth maybe 4 times, for a short visit.( I am filing for modification of custody), but he also collects SSDI for my son, who is DS and I pay child... Read more »
What do you believe he did to defraud Social Security and the State of Florida? A custodial parent can hire someone to look after the child; so he could in theory also leave your son with his parents, although the court may well hold it against him in deciding your motion to modify custody.
My kids are 23 and 25 years of age, and I'm still being charged for monthly support. How can I terminate a court ordered support case from New York, if I'm living in Florida? Hopefully there's online forms that i can mail to the courts, because there's no way I can go all the... Read more »
My husband has a custody agreement where he is supposed to pay $300 a month plus an extra $100 for back payment till the $1500 he owed was paid off. I adore him, but he just does whatever she says because he's scared of her. He didn't realize the $400 was supposed to be temporary and that... Read more »
Child lives with neither parent yet she seeks child support. Lost my job and I’m a injured vet whom served 7+yrs. original case from Illinois. Mother moved child from Chicago to Arizona without fathers (me) consent or knowledge
Your question is unclear. If you need someone to review the order of child support or modify it, since you lost your job, you will need to have someone where the order was initially entered, which from your question was not in Florida. You may want to repost your question in the Illinois section of...Read more »
Why are they still garnishing my disability check and took my stimulus money when I don't owe them nothing I sent a copy of the transaction history dating all the way back to 2012 showing balance due is zero I believe I'm intitlled to reimbursement from the date of case being closed til now
Sometimes, when a child support order is not clear when child support ends, you have to ask the court to end the child support. You may need to get a court order ending the support and addressing the issue of over payments.
Having a closed case is not the same as not having a responsibility to pay child support. It's unclear what you mean by closed case. If your child/children have all reached the age of majority (18) and graduated from high school, then you should be done paying. If money is still being taken...Read more »
