Legal Answers
39 Questions Answered

Q. What steps do I need to take to have my child support modified for me maintaining health insurance coverage on my child?
A: Hello, you would need to file a Petition to Modify. In most counties, those are between $200-$400 to file. You should seek out legal counsel in your local area to determine the best course of action based on your specific facts and circumstances. Best of luck!
Q. Can my x, who is remarried drop childsupport / back childsupport ?
A: The new husband would only be able to adopt the child if the ex-husband legally terminates his parental rights. If that happened, then yes, current child support could stop. Whether you and your husband are seeking adoption or to terminate your ex husband's parental rights, you should speak with a family law attorney in your area. Best of luck!
Q. Is child support mandatory in alabama. Divorce is final but nothing in the decree about child support being paid
A: No, child support is not mandatory. It depends on the custodial arrangement between the parents and then it is calculated according to Rule 32. Good Luck!
Q. In alabama if my son joins the army at 18 will my childsupport stop even though it states on my papers to the age of 19?
A: Child support will not stop without an action asking the court to stop it. Best of luck!
Q. I found out I was pregnant prior to separating from my husband. Can we file uncontested while pregnant in Alabama?
A: Yes.
Q. What papers are needed for a dad to relinquish care of his 16 year old to a friend of the family, in Alabama
A: Could be adoption or guardianship. You should seek out a family law attorney in your area who can discuss your specific situation and give you complete advice on which option is best for you and the child. Best of luck!
Q. Petition for an adult adoption in Alabama? Child will be 18 and step parent would like to adopt and change last name.
A: A person is a minor until age 19 in Alabama. So it would not be an adult adoption. This sounds like it would be a familial adoption and as long as you and the minor have been living in the same house for 12 months, then you could file for adoption. You would need consent from both biological parents, or file to terminate the rights of whichever parent did not give consent. Adoption is largely a creature of statute. You are looking at 2-3+ court appearances to accomplish all this. I would contact a family law attorney in your area to help guide you through the long process. Best of luck!
Q. My husband pays child support through DHR and his ex not letting his daughter vist is there anything we can do.
A: Yes, he should file for modification/custody/ visitation. Best of luck!
Q. We live in Alabama but my son went to Florida and got married when he turned 18 shouldn’t this emancipate him
A: This answer could be different if your CS order states it is different or if your agreement with different provisions was something you and the other parent signed, but CS typically ceases when a child gets married. You would need to file with the court asking for them to stop child support because the child married.
