Q. How can I get child support dropped if my children’s Mother agree to dropping it
A: You can go to court and petition to drop the support, but you've got to show the court why. Just because she wants to is not enough of a reason.
Q. Can child support be transferred from a state that ends support at 19yo to a state that ends at 18yo just to end support
A: Another imaginative idea from a person who does not understand the law. That won't work. The case stays where the child is.
Q. My 17 yr old daughter left home without consent & living in a hotel with her abusive 20 yr old boyfriend. Is this legal
A: If you do so before she is 18 you can file a CHINS petition. That is your best option. Get in touch with an attorney in your area and get this done. That is a court petition that can be filed through the juvenile court that says she is in need of supervision.
Q. How would the creditor take my income as a 1099 independent? Also is there anyway to stop them I assume filing bankrupt
A: A person who is a judgment creditor can garnish your wages or income. Remember, because they have a judgement against you -- the portion that they are able to garnish is theirs, not yours. If you have filed bankruptcy within 7 years you can't file again. They can also garnish your bank accounts and take other property from you to satisfy a judgment.
Q. My ex-husband and I waived our rights to alimony and child support. If I remarry can he sue for child support?
A: First, you cannot "waive your right to child support." Support belongs to your children. If you and he agreed that no support should be payable either way, and the court agreed to order that, your remarriage has no effect on support. It is based on your income only.
Q. How do I stop wage garnishments that we’re supposed to be ended by a judges order?
A: It is a simple process to file to stop an IWO once there is a Court Order to do so. I see that you are represented by counsel, so you need to contact your lawyer. I assume there is a Court Order saying you no longer owe support and have no arearrage.
Q. I have filled for a modification of my support an a date has been set what happens if I cant make it to court
A: Your petition to modify will be denied.
Q. Adultery, Divorce, Custody/Child Support and Alimony
A: You have a lot of facts here, and they are all important to the questions you ask. You need an attorney to address these. Go to legal aid, or find the money to hire someone. If he has had sex with you after learning of your infidelity, he can't sue you on grounds of adultery. If he left you for another woman then you probably can. THis is not a case to do yourself. GO get some help. Call legal services or call your county bar and ask this if they can tell you who can help.
Q. How long does a father pay child support after graduation? Child lives with mother plans to go to attend college.
A: Child support is payable until the child is 19 years old. If the child is self supporting, then the payor must go to court and show that.
