She has severed all communication with him. His ex-wife and the daughter chose the school without his knowledge. What is his obligation to pay for college? His ex-wife says it is 70-30. We are willing to pay 50-50 even though there is no relationship. The separation agreement does not state the... Read more »
I can not stress how incredibly not smart (this is the nicest way I can say stupid) it was to contractually obligate himself to pay for any portion of college (or any thing else for that matter that goes beyond required child support). Had he not contracted, he certainly could have paid if he...Read more »

I have lost my attorney. Opposing council was responsible for writing and filing. It was completed but n issue arose from company buyout on the 401k. A work around has been proposed to give me the amount agreed up. The only thing lacking is any growth on the fund since Oct of 2018. It seems I... Read more »
Unfortunately, she can force her to leave one way or another. If she has been paying anything towards the house bills (mortgage, rent, utilities, etc.), her mother will most likely have to go through an eviction process before being able to force her to leave. If not, the police may force her to...Read more »
We moved here in N.C on 5/2018 from Md. and my husband sent us ahead to a rental property that he was supposed to accompany us when he found employment but instead ask for an divorce again after reconciliation when he had abandoned us before in Md.
You should be entitled to spousal support, if he has any disposable income after meeting his reasonable monthly expenses, and you have not committed adultery. The sooner you file an action for Post-separation support and alimony, the better.
My father is abusive towards me and i want to live with my mother i have reported this to DSS multiple times and wont take it to 215 or do anything about it. the law is "it is not illegal for a 17 year old to run away without parental permission.

You can leave and go to your mother's. However, the police may suggest that you return, and will certainly encourage your mother to encourage you to do the same (since he has custody); however, they can't make you. Your mother could file a Motion to Modify Custody, and at least get it filed with...Read more »

Mother is wanting financial support the father has stated since the beginning that he does not want to be part of child's life and wants to give up any rights, they came to an agreement. Mother has reached out recently saying father can't give up... Read more »
Father has no rights if not on the birth certificate but that doesn't mean he can't get rights or that can't be made to pay child support. Further, if he is the father, he can consent to his rights being taken but he can not voluntarily and unilaterally give up those rights. If he could, men all...Read more »
You don't get to eat your cake and still have it. You didn't seem to have any problem making the accusations to have the restraining order temporarily granted. If your mother in law's conduct warrants a restraining order, then you and your husband ought to have the fortitude to publicly stand...Read more »

You may have a case, but you would need to consult with a local attorney who can review your situation in more detail to determine if you can sue the homeowner for anything like emotional distress or possibly have her charged with crimes like blackmail. What she is doing definitely does not seem...Read more »
Homeowner where I reside had me served w noterized papers stating that if i dont drop the order i will be evicted, however while residing here i have already given him the support card n he gets all his money rt back i only felt this was right is this legal can I sue her dor this
What's legal and what is right are often two different things. She is likely able to legally evict you so if you want or need to stay where you are you may need to work something out with your daughter's father and the homeowner. Of course you can always, take the child and the support money and...Read more »
The affair is irrelevant to whether she can file for divorce from bed and board - she could do that for any reason. Of course, the fact that there was an affair makes her case a bit stronger if she decides to go that route. However, filing a divorce from bed and board or duking things out in...Read more »
We have a family friend who is in a relationship with someone who does bad drugs she won't leave the cops have been called so many times that CPS is involved. Her daughter calls herself my niece she stays with me for a week or so almost every month or so. CPS told her mom that they was going to... Read more »
If CPS takes her they may consider you but likely not. It'd likely be better for the mother to consent to you having custody to preemptively side step DSS. If they get involved, there is no telling what will happen - they are the very definition of unpredictable (and that is the nicest thing I...Read more »
This is in NC. In 2000 Very, very bad divorce, child custody, accusations, etc. In 2007 Court ordered counseling, I attended but my ex stopped bringing my daughter and then they moved a couple states away in 2011/2. I have not seen my daughter since. She is now 22. I just received this Motion in... Read more »
The outcome depends on several factors but two are most important: 1) if the bills are legitimate, and 2) if you are under an obligation to pay. If so - ya gotta pay up simple as that. At this point, you just need to bite the bullet and hire an attorney. Your odds of a motion to dismiss or even...Read more »

Both with the same women(never married) The oldest kid lives with my mother who has full court ordered custody.The youngest lives with biological mother.I pay support for the youngest child to the mother but my mother doesn't receive support from either parent.

If the older child is living with the mother - why do you think she shouldn't get money? Don't want to pay child support, have your mother take the child back or move for a modification of custody yourself to have the older child live with you. Otherwise, pay child support. Your other option is...Read more »
Mother and child were made to leave their home and stay with grandparents. After cps told them they were doing so good and getting a new worker. Later came by and removed us. Parents had passed all drug screens. Accuse of DV. Even though father left to avoid a simple argument like they told him to... Read more »
This is essentially what often happens when you let DSS into your business and cooperate with them. DSS is so bad that often your best bet is to simply leave the state with the child as soon as you get wind of them sniffing around. However, in your case that ship has sailed long ago. Now that...Read more »

Do you have a specific question? If so, you should ask it. Otherwise, just show up and tell the truth. Do you really think any Judge from good 'ol boy North Carolina will be inclined to uproot 3 children after 5 years to put them with an unemployed potential felon?
