Yes, that's exactly how you do it. Send her an email and attach a copy of the ortho bill and ask her to please pay 30% of it. It is not necessary that you have anything notarized. You simply need to ask your ex to pay it, by supplying her with a true and correct copy of the entire bill and give...Read more »

First off, Idaho would not allow you to "sign off" rights to your daughter UNLESS there is someone willing to adopt her. In your case, your ex-wife did not give your daughter your last name and wanted to adopt her daughter as much as you did, it...Read more »

If you and he had no previous custody order in place, then strictly speaking, he is NOTHING but a sperm donor. Simply by having his name on the birth certificate gives him NOTHING but obligations to pay child support. If he ever wanted to become the "father" of this 6 yr. old son, he would need...Read more »
I understand money issues but custody papers and being self-represented do not go together. You can't imagine the difficulty of what you're thinking about doing. I would SO STRONGLY recommend that you ask family to loan you some serious money and hire an excellent attorney who knows the ropes and...Read more »
Do you pay CS to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Child Support Receipting? If so, then you will still be required to pay CS for your son even though he says he wants to live with you. In the unlikely event that a court allowed you to pay your son's father directly, then you could...Read more »

She takes the custody in my home watching the children. In the last 6+ months that has... Read more »
Everything you have stated tells me that there is NO court order for child support, correct? If there is NO order then you would have a case in Small Claims Court to get back the difference between what you've actually paid and what the child support calculator says, but a different judge MIGHT...Read more »
The Idaho Child Support Guidelines make provision for child support being paid to children of another relationship. It's not a dollar for dollar reduction to current child support, but is is taken into consideration.
4 out of 6 of his children he doesn't have any contact with nor will they allow him any contact. 2 of them live out of state and the other 2 live 45 minutes away. He also wants to adopt my 5 year old when we get married due to him being the only "Dad" she has ever known.
That's a really good question. Adoption is not a misterial act by a judge. It requires a Petition for adoption and the Magistrate WILL examine the Petition, which includes all kinds of information and the question probably will come up at some point: why would you want to adopt someone else's...Read more »
