Q) What happens when farther does not show up for Dna testing
A) If the person refuses to take a court-ordered paternity test, it could result in legal consequences. For example, the potential father may be held in contempt of court for violating the court order. This can result in fines or criminal charges. Or, a judge may enter an automatic (default) judgment against the person. Source: https://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/paternity-test-laws.html

https://childsupportoffice.us/my-fiance-fell-behind-in-child-support-payments-was-taken-to-jail-just-doesnt-seem-right/
Q) Hi. Last year in November, my fiance fell behind in his child support payments, and was taken to jail. His mother got sick and we all thought she was going to die, so to get out of jail the court offered him drug court even though he’s never been on drugs nor has had a drug related offense or charge. Afraid that he would be incarcerated if his mom passed away, he took the offer and had been in there for 9 months. He has never failed a drug test or violated and rules or regulations. It was hard for him at first to get a decent full time job to pay his full payment plus take care of himself not to mention running 40 miles back and forth to take drug tests, go to court, groups, classes etc and still keep his job. Needless to say, this has been a very difficult and challenging thing for not just him, but for both of us. It’s taken every dime we have just to keep our heads above water and make sure he does what is needed to avoid jail time. Now he’s sitting on jail on what was suppose to be a 7 day day sanction for being late…due to his job…which he needs to pay his support. They revoked him and are now sending him to a rehab facility for 6 months. I do not understand this. They are sending someone who has never had a drug problem to a drug rehab so therefore he can fall more behind on child support…which was the whole reason for him even getting drug court in the first place. He has a full time job and a wonderful boss who is willing to hold it and plus he’s been making woo dollar payments every Friday. This just seems so unfair and how once again his life and our lives are put on hold. This just doesn’t seem right and there has to be something we can do so that he can get out and go back to work and continue making his payments. He also doesn’t get to see his children due to his ex wife not allowing it.

A) Resolve this situation with the courts your fiance will need legal representation. It is highly recommended that he seek a lawyer as soon as possible to assist in resolving this issue.

Q) The courts gave me custody of my 2 great grandchildren. Child support has put a hold on my checks because I have not complied with them but when I call to find out what I need to do they say I must come in to the office. I live an hour away and work Monday thru Friday, I can not afford to miss work is there no other way to settle this?

A) You may need to take some time off from work to rectify the problem with your child support payments. You could also look at getting legal representation. Please call your child support office and request any other possible options.

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
