You should appear in court on the return day of the summons. At that time, you can ask the judge to assign a lawyer to you without charge if you meet the low income criteria. You can also contact the local bar association for recommendations.
I am being denied SS and other things based upon the last court order of approx. 25 years ago. I need to know the statute name/number and what that actual Statute of Limitations is for collection enforcement for the State of New York.
I also wish to pursue a Federal Court ruling on the... Read more »
There is no "best way" to appeal any order from any judge in family court. The appellate standard is that the decision of a judge shall not be lightly overturned unless it lacks a sound and substantial basis in the record. This means that Carney, a Buffalo judge and former practitioner in...Read more »
If my child lives with grandparents instead of custodial parent how is child support calculated? Does the amount get adjusted because child doesn’t live with residential parent. Are both parents now obligated to pay? Let me preface by saying I have joint custody and I would like my child to live... Read more »
If a payee parent is no longer custodial of the child, he/she is not entitled to any child support. If the grandparent that is now custodial over the child they must petition for support from both parents.
My mother never paid child support even though she was not the custodial parent,at17 years old she let me live there for only less than a month before making me homeless.She has always been inappropriate with me making me take off my shirt to take pictures of me while I was in the mental health...

So sorry to hear about what happened to you. Unfortunately, from your description, it appears the Statute of Limitations (SOL) on any case has long since expired. The SOL for intentional torts such as abuse is only one (1) year from the time you turned 18. New York does not recognize a cause of...Read more »
I have a support order over 40k in arrears and somehow he is a free man! He is working because his iron worker union has told me but support collection doesn't get a response from employer. Should I hire a lawyer?P.I ? I have tried by the book and he gets away with no responsibility at all!!
You should file a violation petition - with the aim of obtaining a money judgment. Among other things, the money judgment accrues 9% interest on the arrears. It also allows you to take action if SCU isn't - you can (via an attorney) move to garnish wages, seize money from his bank accounts,...Read more »
I’m seeking full custody of my son. Current on child support with a credit also. Currently have my son 2 days a week. Tried my best to coparent with mother but she has promised to make my life hell for 18 years. What can I do?
Keep a careful paper-trail. Request additional time - request reasons for the denial of the additional time. File your petition - get a good lawyer to represent you. Thus, call a NYC Child Custody attorney to schedule an initial consultation.
Filing for an uncontested divorce can be a low cost alternative to a long drawn out divorce. When our firm handles an uncontested divorce, we require that all issues between the parties have been resolved. This includes the payment of child support, custody and visitation, and the division of any...Read more »
Your post covers a number of categories but it remains open - maybe because a specific question is not included. But it looks like something that an immigration attorney could have insight into. If that's the case, one option is to repost and include Immigration Law as a category; another is...Read more »
Mother and infant are residents of NY and father lives in FL. She filed for child support in NY and has been unsuccessful in serving the father in FL. Once he found out he then went and filed a support case against himself in Miami Dade court to bring the case down to FL and said the mother has no... Read more »
You are entitled to whatever is in your court order. The amount you receive could be because, by law, the CSCU can only take up to 65% of disposable income. If the payor received less income, you might have received less disbursement, but the remainder is still owed to you and becomes arrears.
I was never married to the dad of my child. The relationship became abusive, I fled while pregnant. We have been in court for 5-6 years. I have taken drug tests, all negative. I send gifts but because of unfounded allegations (I have documentation from local agencies and CPS that prove I am... Read more »
The jurisdictional law is different for child custody versus child support cases. As a general rule, the "home state" of the child (i.e., where the child has resided for the 6 months immediately preceding the case) is where the custody litigation will need to take place. For a full...Read more »
My ex-husband had not paid in about 4 years. He was in another state and working under the table. Unbeknownst to me, he started making payments. No one ever contacted me and I never received any payments from the SCU. What is my recourse??
