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.
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.
