The 21 yr old graduated from high school, went to a trade school and graduated, now working and he is no longer living with his mother who has moved to somewhere in Indiana with the other child.

My ex wife and I had an agreement in our decree that I would pay any child care expenses related to babysitting. He's getting older now and we both agree that a regular child support payment is needed. Can the court order back child support over the existing court order?

The theory behind it is that if you haven’t started paying support by the time they move to suspend your license, you’re never going to pay anyway so they may as well exact punishment in the form of yanking your license. You may be able to make an agreement with them to not suspend your...Read more »

The guidelines go quite high in calculating income but if the earnings exceed the top of the chart, the court can make the necessary computations and adjustments to properly calculate the appropriate amount.
