Attorney at Large, Professional LLC
I served South Dakota clients in numerous family law situations including divorce, custody, child support, protection orders (TRO), as well as in Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, medical directives, and special needs trusts. I also have appeared in traffic court and represented people in DUIs. I personally take care of the entire client-centered legal experience I provide, from initial consultation, research, drafting and filing of pleadings, discovery, negotiations, court appearances, litigation, through the final agreement, or findings of fact, conclusions of law, and order. I negotiate agreements and settlements where possible. I suggest a professional mediator before resorting to trial, especially where children are involved. Please give me a call and let's discover if I can meet your needs in the legal arena.
A: I need more information to answer your question. I can only assume you are the father and you filed a case with CSEA? Has paternity already been established? Are you on the birth certificate? Was there a prior order for child support?
I suggest you talk with an attorney who can ask you questions to fill-out the whole story and see the issues.
Once paternity is established, it is unlikely it will be un-established, except through DNA testing.
Here is a scenario that may or may not pertain to your situation: Paternity is established and father is ordered to pay child support. Father asks for a hearing on the matter (or objects, etc.) Mother does not cooperate (does not show-up at the hearing, etc.) One thing that could happen is Father would get the child support reduced because Mother is not there to support her claims. But that would depend on what happened prior and subsequent to the original order.
No, child support does not go away.
Good Luck to you.
A: I need more information to understand the answer you seek. I suggest you retain an attorney, give the whole story, and discuss your options. For example: If the other parent is not returning the child on time, you can file a motion to enforce a court order.
If the other parent is not visiting the child as much as allowed by the court, there is nothing you can do, as you cannot force a parent to visit the child. Further, the other parent's lack of participation in visitation does not give you the right to withhold the next visitation. If you want to modify the visitation you must file a motion with the court and the current visitation order stays in place unless and until modified by the court.
Good luck to you.
