58 Questions Answered

Q. Could you please tell me the exact forms that I need to file with the court to have child support/IWO terminated at 19?
A: Hello, thank you for mentioning me in your question! The forms that are available to everyone for free on the internet are CS-44 and CS-45. Please read the forms carefully and provide the information they ask for including the fee to the clerk. If you have further questions, you could contact the clerk 's office in the county you intend to file. I do not practice in Fairhope, so they may require other or additional forms or information. Best of luck!
Q. I am a foster kid in Alabama. Except I moved out a year ago and I am now 19. I have my own place and a good paying job.
A: Hello. I would assume your foster parents have temporary custody pending the location of a viable adoption for your niece. DHR is likely involved as well. You would need to contact your neice's DHR caseworker and them s/he he know you want to adopt her. DHR will investigate you and your home life to determine if you can support/provide a good home life for yourself and her. You cannot do a relative adoption in Alabama without the adoptee (your niece) living with you for 12 consecutive months prior to the filing. You should have a consultation with counsel in your area to determine the best course of action to get your neice. Best of luck!
Q. Can a spouse get off paying spousal support of 17 yr marriage ,he was sole provider and same job for 21yr.
A: Hello, it is possible and all depends on the facts of your case. You should seek counsel in your area and discuss your situation with him or her to receive a better estimation. Best of luck!
Q. Who do i contact in Tuscaloosa County,Al my father died and now a lady say she’s my sister I need a DNA but I live in Tx
A: Hello. Many online DNA testing kits are available for a low price, roughly $50. Wal-Mart also carries them. Many on-site facilities like LabCorp also do DNA testing. If there is a potential legal battle related to your father's estate, you would need a facility like Lab Corp so the results would be official and able to be entered as evidence, if needed. Best of luck!
Q. If the parents were unmarried when both children were born & there is no custody agreement, who is the custodial parent
A: Hello. The answer is both of you have equal rights to the children. Dad has a right to know where his children are, if they are moving, what school they attend, health issues, extra curricular activities, religious instruction, etc. You should seek legal counsel in your area and discuss your plans so you do not do something that hurts you down the road. Best of luck!
Q. We got married November 2009 and were apart January 2010. Can you help me get a divorce?
A: Yes, you can still obtain a divorce even if you may not know where your spouse is located. However, you will need the assistance of an attorney to make sure all the procedural/ jurisdictional aspects are satisfied. Best of luck!
Q. My child is 18 and has graduated from high school with no plans for college can I ask to be cut from child support?
A: Yes, you can always ask a court to stop your child support. However, if your child is not completely self-supporting, you will likely still be required to pay until the child reaches 19. Graduating from high school and not attending college are not factors a court considers. Best of luck!
Q. I had a child out of wedlock 10 years ago. Mother has sole legal custody . I have my child about half the time and pay
A: Hello, two types of custody exist: legal and physical. Legal is regarding decision making authority for the child like which school does s/he attend, what hospital, after school activities, etc. Physical custody addresses the time each parent physically has with the child. It is unclear from the facts you stated what the actual custody arrangement is between you. If you truly do not have any type of legal custody to make important healthcare, school, religious, etc. decisions for your child, then you could file for a modification regardless of whether Mother is leaving the states. If mom leaves you with the child indefinately, you have at least two issues on your hand: legal decision making authority and child support. You should seek an attorney in your area to determine the best strategy for you...at least 2-3 months before Mother leaves the states. Best of luck!
Q. If me and my exwife agree for our son to come live with me (the father) can the child support be stopped
A: Short answer is yes, but you would need to file a modification with the court, along with the appropriate child support forms. Otherwise, you are at risk of being held liable for unpaid child support if you do not let the court and the state know the circumstances have changed. Your child is also, possibly, owed child support by the mother paid to you, and that issue needs to be addressed by the court. You should seek counsel in your area to make sure you properly protect yourself. Best of luck!
