Q: What does a judge mean by “read the riot act” to a person on pre trail diversion?

My ex wife is on pre trial diversion for child support. I never receive hardly anything (maybe 20 a month), when she’s ordered to pay $500. She had court and I was told the judge “read the riot act” to her. What does this mean?

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Apr 24, 2022

That is slang for the judge told her he was going to send her to prison if she didn’t make the most of the pretrial diversion opportunity or if she committed any new crimes. It’s a stern waning not to screw up.

Q: How does the new child support laws enacted on March 1st in Kentucky affect me?

We have shared custody of our 4 children. My ex wife does not work, has remarried, and is pregnant. My gross income is $2500 bi-weekly and I pay $250 for the children's insurance also bi-weekly.

You will need to recalculate child support with current income info ( informally at first) to see what the new amount is. It is a rather complex calculation so I’d review it carefully with a lawyer.

Q: Should I be getting any child support?

I have a son that is now 19. I raised him all on my own. I have tried to get child support through out the years. Havent gotten any money. Even though my son is over the age of 18 now, am I entitled to receive any of the back child support? Does it no longer matter now that he is over 18?

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Feb 24, 2022

No. If the child is 19, the statute of limitations has already run.

Q: I got behind on child support because I was in jail and also missed the court date for it because I didn't know about it

If I pay the child support office as much as I can to show I'm trying to get caught up, will I still go to jail for being in contempt of court? And if I can somehow pay the whole amount I'm behind could I still go to jail for missing court?

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Oct 16, 2021

Get your documentation of incarceration together to show the judge on your court date. Pay as much as you can on the arrearage prior to the court date and you probably will not be incarcerated.
