Arnab Kumar Banerjee's answer i dont think you have to provide financial status because in the application form of child support by Mississippi department of human service, i did not find any such financial status information. they ask for your social security number. follow this link to see :
Arthur Calderon's answer It is possible, but it will be an uphill battle, because you will have to move to set aside the judgment. Your best bet is going to be to get with an attorney to further discuss.
Arthur Calderon's answer You need to get with an attorney ASAP. As a father, you have certain rights that it looks like she is trying to limit. I'd be curious to see what sort of papers that she showed you, as well as whether they were signed by a judge. That being said, if custody or visitation was never established, then you may have the ability to sue for custody over your child, or at the very least, standard visitation.
Arthur Calderon's answer If there is a child support order in MS, then your children have until their 28th birthdays to initiate suit, otherwise he won't have to pay. They need to get with an attorney ASAP, otherwise they may waive their ability to collect.
Arthur Calderon's answer If you are still married, then you have a right to see your children; however, unless there is a temporary order put in place pending a divorce, it is incredibly tricky to enforce some sort of visitation.
Arthur Calderon's answer Typically, yes, as he is still considered a minor until he turns 21. That being said, if it was a voluntary medical expense that was memorialized through contract (like counseling), then that may change it to where he would be responsible, because the age of being able to contract is 18.
Arthur Calderon's answer This depends on large part on what the emergency custody orders say, particularly with regard to visitation. If this is a youth court matter, then the goal is reunification of the family. If, however, it is in chancery court, then you face an even harder battle. Your best bet is going to be to consult with an attorney to review the emergency custody order and to discuss your options as you move forward.
Arthur Calderon's answer Yes, but only under a particular set of circumstances, such as where the divorce is null due to a procedural defect, or if both parties have gotten back together and wish to set aside the divorce.
Arthur Calderon's answer The thing to remember about Mississippi is that grandparents do not necessarily have visitation rights with their grandchildren unless very particular circumstances are met. Your best bet will be to contact a family law attorney to determine whether you meet those circumstances, and then you can assess the likelihood of success should you decide to sue for visitation rights.
Arthur Calderon's answer Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. The visitation order sets the bare-minimum that a non-custodial parent may see his or her children when not under the normal custody of the other parent, unless other (and very particular) circumstances are met which would justify changing custody and/or visitation.
Arthur Calderon's answer They will need to either establish guardianship or a modification of custody, giving the son to the father. Even though school begins next week, it can be done through the court system in that time frame.
