Legal Answers
18 Questions Answered
Q. If the noncustodial parent doesn't visit their children in an extended period of time, is this considered abandonment?
A: Depending on how many visits have been missed and the reason the non-custodial parent has missed them, you might have a good case to file for a modification of your prior agreement. There are a lot of factors that go into whether or not your modification petition will be successful. I highly suggest that you consult with an experienced child custody attorney.
Q. Can a divorce be voided because of a typo?
A: Without seeing the actual Judgment of Divorce, I can't definitely answer your question. However, most likely you are still divorced. It seems that you may have to go back to court with a Motion to get your husband to sign the correct papers.
Q. How do you get the remaining amount of child support owed per court order that the SCU will not take out of check?
A: It is correct that SCU can only take a portion of the payor's income to pay for child support.

However, the Order should have also stated that the non-custodial parent must pay the balance via direct deposit or checks. So the attorney you spoke to is generally correct, you can file a petition for enforcement or for contempt.
