Leonard R. Boyer's answer Although no one can give you precise answers to your question, without knowing all the facts, there are numerous circumstances when child support would not stop at age 23. I have personally been involved in several of these type of cases, and there is significant case law, which will allow that. Do not let geographic restrictions get in the way of retaining the best attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap...
Andrew John Economos' answer If you are able, I would first suggest that you contact an experienced family law attorney to assist you. I have seen it too many times where a litigant attempts to go it alone and receives an unsatisfactory outcome, only then to seek out the assistance of counsel. By that point, it is often too late for the attorney to have any realistic shot of reversing the Judge's decision. The moral of this is that it is often cheaper to hire an attorney to deal with it in the first place, then to hire one...
Leonard R. Boyer's answer This case is going to be very complex and it could get very expensive fairly fast. You need to retain experienced mortgage foreclosure defense and matrimonial counsel. Only a mortgage foreclosure and matrimonial attorney has the expertise to prevent you from having more problems than you can possibly imagine. To properly answer your questions and address your concerns, the best way to handle this is with an in-person consultation with an experienced mortgage foreclosure defense and matrimonial...
Leonard R. Boyer's answer Yes, it is legal for a Judge to impute income at minimum wage or higher to someone who is not working full-time, unless there is a legitimate justification for the person not working full time. For example, some one who has to spend time taking care of a "special need" child. You may qualify for NJ Legal Services, and they can make a motion for reconsideration, if the facts justify it. If you cannot afford an attorney contact local law school legal clinics.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer Every situation is different and your case like all the others is fact sensitive. Trying to represent yourself in Court is a bad idea. Not only are you emotionally involved, but you are not a trained attorney. You do not know the Court Rules, Rules of Evidence, case law, nor are you trained how to handle a legal case, especially if litigation is involved. However, if you do not retain counsel, and the opposing party does have counsel, you will could get slaughtered (figuratively speaking). Do...
Arnab Kumar Banerjee's answer two states have different child support laws. as for child support i presume the following : your child's support started in new jersey and then when you moved to Florida then you end child support in new jersey and started child support in Florida. then when you come back to new jersey again then your child's support in new jersey begin. is this the case ? if yes then the law of new jersey will be applied here. if no then tell me about it.
Bari Weinberger's answer Thank you for your question. Child support is governed by the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines. I suggest that you schedule an appointment with a family law attorney to discuss options and potential obligations. There are many variables that go into the calculations.
Bari Weinberger's answer Thank you for your question. If you received a levy for child support while you were in prison, it appears that you already had an active child support obligation that was not paid. If you had the obligation to pay child support and the levy was on your accounts or assets you held then it was appropriate, despite the fact that you were in prison. I hope this information is helpful to you.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer That will require a Court Order, but it is not likely to happen. It will depend a great deal on which Judge is deciding the matter. You need to retain an experienced NJ matrimonial attorney to handle this matter.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer Paralegals are not licensed to practice law in NJ, so you do not want to be an accomplice to aiding and abetting someone in the unauthorized practice of law. Using a bargain basement attorney on a complex case like this will really mess things up badily and they would not have the skills or experienced to help you.
Trying to represent yourself in Court is a bad idea. Not only are you emotionally involved, but you are not a trained attorney. You do not know the Court Rules, Rules of...
Leonard R. Boyer's answer Contact the child support probation dept. in NY. THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY WHO IS LICENSED IN YOUR STATE FOR LEGAL ADVICE. This is merely suggestions for you to think about in discussing your situation with the local attorney.
In order to understand whether we can help you, we would need to see the court orders which denied your request for a paternity test and obtain other information for you. You should seek the advice of an attorney on this issue so that they can properly analyze your situation and provide you with guidance.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer There is no retroactive child support in NJ absent unpaid child support pursuant to a Court Order. Trying to represent yourself in any legal proceeding, especially a family matter is unwise, to put it charitably. You need an in person consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney, who can review all previous legal proceedings and documents. Then the attorney will be able to advise you how to proceed. You need to ask yourself, can I afford not to have an attorney? Good luck.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer You need to have an experienced attorney docket the Judgment in Trenton. Then have an experienced matrimonial attorney file an enforcement motion. Pick the best lawyer you can find and remember one rule: a good lawyer is generally never cheap, and a cheap lawyer is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer This is far too complex a question to be answered by anything other than a personal consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney. Do not let geographic restrictions get in the way of retaining the best attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap attorney is generally never good so don't choose based on price. You also need to ask the attorney about their experience with this type of case.
Leonard R. Boyer's answer I understand your panic and concern. But the Court is not going to be sympathetic to him. You need to retain an experienced matrimonial attorney to represent you, which includes preparing a proper responsive pleading. This is not something that you can handle on your own. Pick the best lawyer you can find and remember one rule: a good lawyer is generally never cheap, and a cheap lawyer is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
The short answer is possibly. It really depends on what the parties agreed upon in their Marital Settlement Agreement. While child support does include transportation costs, it does not include expenses associated with a motor vehicle purchased or leased for the intended primary use of a child subject to the support order.
I understand that you need answers and need to protect your family. I strongly suggest that your Husband schedule a consultation...
Leonard R. Boyer's answer Are you divorced or not? If you are divorced , she cannot leave the state without a Court Order granting her permission to do so. For the foreseeable future, child support will be determined by the NJ child support guidelines. Pick the best matrimonial lawyer you can find and remember one rule: a good lawyer is generally never cheap, and a cheap lawyer is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
