Your question doesn't really make much sense, if your daughter is your wife's step daughter she would have no claim to child support at all let alone from 10 years ago nor should she have any sort of custody. You daughter will be a dependent until she reaches the age of 18 and possibly a...Read more »
Separation and alimony now. The child was 12yrs old when i marry my wife and i had custody of my daughter. And will i receive child credit for her in child support hearing because we also have a 6yrs during the marry and she is seeking support for the child we have together.
Because your father evidently did not file to legitimate you, and did not include you in a will. Establishing paternity and recognizing a child as a legitimate heir are two different legal processes. Filing an action to legitimate a child establishes paternity, but establishing paternity does not...Read more »
We are in NC. My wife and I have been separated and we have one child together. We didn’t want to go through court for child support and custody we have our on agreement. The people at the Medicaid office are telling my wife that she has to file for child support or our child losing Medicaid
Yes. As a parent you are primarily responsible for the needs of your child(ren) not the state or the taxpayers. If she is receiving financial assistance, from the state, the state can collect that money back from you.
CS holds the payments all the time, and I'm a single mom raising 3 children. The father of my 2 oldest is $13,199 in the rears of Child support payments, and he also hasn't filed taxes in like 3 or 4 years.
what do you mean by holding the payments? Are you saying that the father is paying on time and child support is not sending it to you? Child support of course can't send you money if he's not paying it to them.
Case is with CSA, but they refuse to file a MSC until she goes back to work and refuses to pay c. support. Parent had minor hip surgery back in Apr 2019. She is healed, no complications and 8 months later still refuses to go back to work. CSA filed a motion to reduce, but Parent did not provide... Read more »
Sounds like CSEA is the problem. if she has stopped paying and there is no court order suspending her payments then she is in violation and there should be a show cause issued. you can hire a private attorney to pursue this. If you are the recipient CSEA cannot file a motion to reduce child...Read more »
If you were not present the court can only enter a judgment based on her information. You have a responsibility to attend to your legal matters in the same fashion you attend your other important business matters.
You can only change child support based upon a substantial change of...Read more »
I managed to get it continued, but was supposed to pay $200 that day. Which because I’m out of work was told by a friend prior he could loan it to me. Well that never happened being something came up with him. I’ve never been in arrears, has been paid on time for 12 years. I worked for my... Read more »
You should pay your child support obligation. You indicated in your question that you had money to pay other bills. Well guess what - that money should have went to child support as that is your most important bill.
There is no such thing as 'legally separated' so "one person [can] just move out and then file for Divorce a year later" However, if you do it that way not knowing the law - which you clearly do not, you can screw yourself pretty hard. If things are amicable, your best bet is...Read more »
I was granted full custody I last year. And also asked for child support... The judge gave me the worksheet of the amount I would get.. I called and they told me they don't see any court order.. Now i don't know where the judge is. I have a new family court judge
Mother was sexually involved with 2 men, not married to either, but lives with Man A. A prenatal DNA test was done and the results state Man B is the father. Mother states that she is moving forward as if the baby belongs to Man A. Can she refuse to allow a second DNA test with Man B upon the birth... Read more »
Yes, she can refuse and then man B can get the Court to force her to comply. Of course, unless man B plans to try and obtain custody of the child, all man B is really doing is setting himself up for 18 potential years of paying child support.
I just had to take a DNA to prove father of a 4 year old . I asked for Dna when born mother refused and 2 years ago she wanted support but wouldn't give DNA and now state made her do DNA and now they want 1300.00 a month support .I have a special needs child I have full custody of and I am...

yes, Maryland can ask NC child support enforcement to register the child support order and enforce it. You need to hire an attorney in Maryland to see if the amount can be changed. you can search for a child support attorney in Maryland on this website.
We are on medicaid and I was told to go to legal Aid for help with filing child support. Whats the difference between the two (Free attorney and Child Support Enforcement) Are they both court ordered? which one is faster ?
It varies from county to county, but in general, if both parents are wage earners with W-2 documentation of income, child support enforcement (CSE) is the way to go. But if the person you are trying to get money from is going to be hard to find, or is self employed, or you are seeking retroactive...Read more »
