Legal Answers
76 Questions Answered

Q. Is there a way to report that the custodial parent has failed to report her income?
A: Hello. It is not required that she report her income. He would need to file for a child support modification petition in order to recalculate the amount owed. Best of luck!
Q. When is it okay to sue a father for child support?
A: Hello, if you and the father are getting a divorce, then child support should be addressed. If you and the father were never married, then when he stops providing financial support equal to or greater than what the state believe his amount of support obligation for the child. Your child is owed a duty of support so if it is not being financially supported by the other parent, then you should seek that support for your child. It can't get it if you don't ask for it. Best of luck!
Q. How do I file for divorce with no child support owed, no visitation given, and minimal rights without a lawyer?
A: Hello, there is no way to file for an uncontested divorce without an attorney. You also cannot waive child support obligations without an extremely good reason. All three child support forms are mandatory, not optional, and must be filed with the divorce filings. You should have a consultation with an attorney in your area to discuss the entirety of your specific issue. You may also want to ask about terminating his parental rights, but again, that is a question for you to ask in a consultation with some who has better knowledge of all the facts. Best of luck!
Q. I have two children with my ex husband; one of whom is soon to be 19. My ex has already expressed his intention of
A: Hello, child support does not automatically stop when the child turns 19. Court action should be taken, especially a second child is involved. It is because of the second child that it will require the modification (to recalculate support)/contempt petitions if he does half the support payments. Your ex would only be responsible for college expenses if he was ordered to pay it, or in your settlement agreement he agreed to pay it. Post-minority support for college expenses no longer exists in Alabama unless parties agree to it in a settlement agreement. Best of luck!
Q. Can I stop child support if me && my childs father agrees to it?.
A: Hello, you would need to go back to court to have the child support and possibly custody modified. It helps that you both agree; however, child support is not waived just because mom and dad have had a change of heart. Please contact counsel in your local area to help navigate the court system and do the proper filings. Best of luck and congrats on working things out!
Q. If the mother lets the child live with father. is there a way to stop cs without court? We both live in different states
A: Hello, these heat way to stop child support is through court approval. It is for your protection to do so, otherwise you risk still having to pay the last two years of child support. Arrears will build and it is easier if you go to court now to stop it. The other issue you have is that all three of you have now left Alabama. Depending on when you left, you would need to file your modification of custody and child support in Florida since that is where the child is located. You need to seek counsel in Florida and/or ask this question in the Florida section of this website to get a better answer from someone licensed to practice there. Best of luck!
Q. If a mother can be proven unfit can she be put on child support?
A: Hello. Fitness or unfitness is not what child support is based on. The custody arrangement determines who should receive the child support, then the number is calculated based on the Child Support Guidelines. As far as expenses go, the child support order may address who pays for what. If it doesn't, then you are not required to pay for those additional expenses. Best of luck.
Q. Can I get alimony if I divorce my husband? 7 years married and no children. He is not being fair to my rights as wife.
A: Hello. It depends. There are many factors that impact alimony. Please have a consultation with an attorney in your area who can discuss your specific facts and give you the best advice on your chances. Best of luck!
Q. Is there an attorney that can help financially? The house is supposed to be paid for and is in a nice neighborhood.
A: Hello, please clarify your question.
