Q. post Divorce issues involving GAL. Can a GAL make me pay for my deseased exwife bill. I now have full custody of kids?
A: The GAL bills are assigned by the court. Did the court award GAL fees against the deceased ex-wife. If so, the GAL should look to her estate. On the other hand, the court has wide discretion as to awarding GAL fees and could reconsider.
Q. Hi I want to close my child support case supposedly it was frozen years ago but it’s not
A: You need to explain what exactly happened to figure out what needs to be done.
Q. My ex girlfriend filled out a child support document. and wants me to fill it out too. There has been no paternity test.
A: Sounds like you will be signing documents making you liable for child support. If you are unsure, you should have DNA tests done before you acknowledge you are the father.
Q. How would I go about obtaining a probate affidavit in Colorado?
A: You need to retain an attorney where she died. The attorney will tell you the procedure for looking up what happened to her assets. If an estate has not opened, you may be entitled to open it.
Q. my husband pays child support and she is asking for extra money to buy shoes does he have to give her the extra money
A: The only obligation is under the court orders. If it just says child support, then that is the total obligation.
Q. My 16 year old daughter wants to live with me but her father has custody.
A: Unless the DCFS takes her out of the home and places her with you, any change will have to be done by petitioning the court for a new parenting plan. Before, it was called custody and visitation.
Q. Who chooses the trustee in a bankruptcy proceeding?
A: There are standing trustees assigned to counties. In large counties, there may be more than one trustee and one will be assigned from the list.
Q. My ex husband owes $170 k and he turns 55 in a year. When he retires from Minnesota IBEW is he still required to continu
A: If this is back child support, there must be a court order. That court order continues. The usual rule is that if you are behind, then when the current child support stops, withholding continues in the same amount until the arrearage is satisfied. Even social security retirement can be garnished for child support.
Q. Does an estate have to file tax returns?
A: If the estate has more than $600.00 in annual gross income, it has to file a 1041 income tax return.
