Q. My divorce was final in 2004. We both signed a mediation agreement whereby I would pay child support and 2 years of
A: Once your child emancipated the agreement ended unless it explicitly stated that it would continue beyond the age of majority.
Q. Can I do activities with my child in school as a felon?
A: That is up to the school.
Q. If I live in FL with my son & his father in OR has never met him, can he still come take my son from me?
A: You do not mention if you are married or not. The law in Florida is that children are shared. If you go to court in Florida then there will be a parenting plan with a timesharing schedule. The main criteria is what is in the best interest of the child. If the father has never been in the child's life then the court must consider that. If the court awards long distance timesharing then the court must address how that will be paid for.
Q. How much is it to get a legal separation?
A: Florida does not recognize "legal separation." You can either get divorced or enter into a post nuptial agreement which would be a contract between you and your spouse defining your legal rights. The agreement would be valid without finalizing a divorce.
Q. can my ex and I mutually agree to modify (lower) my child support payments? She has remarried and has agreed to do this.
A: In Florida child support is calculated by using the net incomes of the mother and father. The mathematical formula is part of the law. If you agree to reduce the child support, in order to protect yourself, you will want a court order. The modification will require a child support guidelines worksheet which should reflect something close to the $150. If you want the agreement to be binding I recommend that you have a lawyer help you with the filing.
Q. Can I request and get approved a reduction in child support if my financial situation has changed?
A: Child support is based on each parent's income, not their expenses. If you are earning the same amount it will probably not warrant a decrease in child support.
Q. Are expenses considered such as car payment, car insurance expense before child support is calculated
A: Child support is calculated on each parent's income. The only deductions considered besides taxes are health insurance and mandatory retirement payments.
Q. Shared custody to sole custody
A: You file in the county where you and the child live. What you are describing is a change in timesharing. File a Supplemental Petition for Modification and include what you want that is different from when you divorced.
Q. Clarify Child Support for my 3 children - Said support shall continue until all children have turned eighteen(18) year
A: In general the law in Florida is that child support is recalculated as each child emancipates. If the two of you do not agree as to what the language means then your remedy is to return to court for the judge to decide. Same with the life insurance. If he does not agree to pay for his own as ordered then you must return to court.
