https://childsupportoffice.us/my-childrens-father-recently-came-off-of-disability-how-do-i-go-about-getting-child-support-for-them/
Q) My children’s father recently came off of disability and is working. I am no longer receiving child support. He is currently working, how do I go about getting child support for them? He says he will take care of it, but I can’t help but worry.

A) The court will usually order a temporary modification of child support during the disability period of your children’s father. The court may decrease the child support amount for the expected duration of the disability because his disability pay will be less than regular pay. If the disability continues longer than anticipated, the disabled parent may go back to court and request that the modification of child support payments continue for a longer period of time or even indefinitely. The court will generally order a permanent modification of child support if a parent’s disability is medically considered permanent. Once the disability is over, a request can be made to modify the child support payments as the children’s father may then be earning more with regular pay.

https://childsupportoffice.us/i-filed-for-child-support-on-my-ex-we-have-gotten-back-together-he-missed-his-court-date-will-he-get-in-trouble/
Q) I did live in Franklin North Carolina and I filed for child support on my ex but I moved back to Indiana and we have gotten back together and he got a letter in the mail saying he missed the court date and that he is ordered to pay $600 a month now since we are back together and have been since December 14th 2017 Will he get in trouble or go to jail for missing that court date.

A) The court has made the decision on his case and ordered him to pay $600 per month in child support. Ha may get in trouble if the $600 per month is not paid. It is recommended that you both inform the court that you are both back together and ask the court to drop your child support case.

https://childsupportoffice.us/my-husband-pays-his-ex-child-support-support-owed-child-will-turn-18-then-what-happens/
Q) My husband pays his ex child support. She has been ordered to pay (by magistrate) uninsured medical expenses – they are reducing her child support that she received by 20%. However, the child will turn 18/graduate this June (in four months) and the reduction in child support will not even come close to covering what is owed. Then what happens? What options do we have for collecting.

A) Once a child is considered a legal adult, the non-custodial parent is no longer required to pay child support payments. However, should there be back child support payments that remain unpaid, the custodial parent still generally has the right to collect on these back payments, even after the child has been emancipated.

https://childsupportoffice.us/i-have-a-child-support-continuance-my-brother-has-hemorrhaged-and-is-in-icu-ina-coma-i-cant-leave-him/
Q) I have a child support continuance I am to go to on Wed. My brother has hemorrhaged and is in ICU Ina coma. I am afraid to leave him because we don’t know if he will live. How do I let court know?

A) You will need to postpone your court date. There are reasons you might want or need to postpone, or obtain a continuance for, a civil court date. If you cannot physically be present for your court date, there are two avenues to pursue to postpone the date: by obtaining permission from the court; or by agreeing to postponement with the opposing counsel. If you can be present in court but are not prepared for your case, you can appear in person on the day of the court date and ask the judge for more time. Due to differing state laws and local rules, it is always best to consult with an experienced lawyer before proceeding. If you do not have an attorney to direct you as to the right course of action, consult the steps below.

https://childsupportoffice.us/father-does-not-get-to-visit-child-pays-500-for-child-support-lost-license-home-and-family-due-to-mother-moving-away/
Q) Child lives with mother and father was granted visitation rights. Mother refuses to pick up phone calls or answer any text messages that attempt the father to schedule visits. Father starts paying child support on time to show that he’s willing to help but starts to fall behind because even with attempting to file contempt of court he still has not seen his child in over 3 years because of mother’s selfishness. Child support payments are ridiculously high ( $500) for one child, the father doesn’t get to visit or spend time with. Father had a fulltime job but he’s lost his license, home and family due to the mother running off with child to a different county, filed injunctions & divorce papers. Please advise.

A) Child support orders can be modified on a temporary or permanent basis. If the non-custodial parent loses a job or develops a temporary medical condition that affects earnings ability, support may be temporarily lowered. If this adult incurs a disability or is forced to take a lesser-paying job, a permanent adjustment may be in order.

A child support attorney can help a non-custodial parent determine whether the child support figure is too high. If it is, the attorney will build and present a case to lower this ongoing financial obligation on a temporary or permanent basis as warranted by filing their petition to modify child support. The non-custodial parent will pay a fair amount to support the child but no more than is necessary. https://www.familylawrights.net/blog/are-you-paying-too-much-child-

https://childsupportoffice.us/my-son-is-currently-living-with-me-i-am-paying-child-support-i-am-sick-of-paying/
Q) Son has been living with me since December of 2016 an is currently living with me I am paying child support an it’s going to his grand mother I am sick of paying while I take care of him she is getting money while he lives with me this is fraud immediate action needs to happen I go to jail for not paying I want her locked up now or all child support an arrears canceled enough is enough

A) It best that you immediately seek and acquire legal assistance to fix this problem. According to Attorney Roy L. Reeves – “File a Motion to Modify ASAP. There is an order right now that says you pay child support. Technically, even if the child comes live with you, that Order is still in full force and effect. Many people swap custody and just deal with it themselves with no problems but when this happens and it blows up (and it does) I assure you, the cost of fixing this is very high. DO NOT SIMPLY IGNORE THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM THINKING A JUDGE WILL FIX IT LATER!” http://www.lawqa.com/qa/how-do-i-stop-paying-child-support-if-my-son-now-lives-with-me

https://childsupportoffice.us/i-just-went-to-court-and-was-awarded-child-support-but-the-judge-didnt-say-how-they-would-be-paid/
Q) Hi, I just went to court and was awarded Child Support but the judge didn’t say how they would be paid. In Orange County, NY if the respondent doesn’t show for the court dates and a decision is made without them, will the support be docked automatically from the respondents paycheck? I know the respondent in my case won’t pay otherwise.

A) After a child support order is in place, the support amount will be deducted from the Non Custodial Parent’s paycheck. State law requires immediate income withholding in most cases. This is an easy way for the Non Custodial Parent to make child support payments. It also provides the NCP with a record of payments made. If support payments are not deducted from the NCP’s paycheck, they should be paid as directed in the court order. It is very important to keep records of the payments that are made.

https://childsupportoffice.us/i-have-been-paying-support-for-3-weeks-the-mother-of-my-child-still-has-not-received-it-yet/
Q) i have been paying support for 3 weeks now and the mother of my child still has not received it yet and it is taken right out of my check every week so what should i do about that

A) For most child support services – payments are processed and disbursed within two business days of receipt. The custodial parent will receive his/her payment within three business days from the date Child Support Enforcement disburses the payment.

If the mother of your child has not received a check within 10 business days of the date the payment was disbursed, call your local child support office. The payment will be researched and if the check has not been returned or cashed, a stop payment is placed on the original check and a new check is reissued. If the check has been cashed, further research must be done. It could take 2 to 3 weeks to determine the status of the original check before a new check can be reissued.
