Child support

I have been paying child support for seven years. My daughter had always lived with her mom. Well, about a year ago my ex(we were never married)left my daughter with me saying she couldn't take care of her anymore; was moving out of state; and asked me to take care of her. I then filed a petition for Child support modification and the child support court stopped the child support. Then the ex came back a couple of months ago and wants our daughter back (I guess since the money stopped). I'm in the process of filing for Child custody now.
My question is: Can I file for child support since my daughter lives with me now?

Child Support

by Brian
(Daytona Beach)

Where can I find the form for an answer to petition for support and other relief? What other forms do I need to file along with it? I was served with this by a sheriff last week. It says I have 20 days to answer it.

Child Support Modification

by Nikki
(Broward)

Hello,

I wish to file a modification for child support in Broward County; where I reside, but the original order of child support was entered in Dade County. Can I still file the petition to modify in my county of Broward County or do I have to file the petition in Dade county where order was entered?

Thanks so much!

collection of unpaid child support

by Larry
(Kissimmee, fl. )

My ex wife has not paid her court appointed child support in over 1 year. We had mediation around April last year and they told her she needed to pay her support. I'm not very good at filling out paperwork and I'm trying to fill out a motion to enforce child support. I would like to ask if she cannot pay her back support that I be awarded full custody. My question is how do I ask for that or word it in my motion? I currently have residential custody and we share a joint decision making.

Modification of Child Support

by Benjamin
(Bartow, Florida)

My name is Benjamin. I'm having a very tough time with the Polk County court system over a child support issue. I was labeled the father by default, because I was served with papers while living in Texas, and missed paternity test dates. Paternity hasn't been established yet, but my 2010-2012 tax returns have been taken. I moved back to Polk County in May 2012, just so I could be back home to deal with this situation. The mother and I have since spoken, and she was adamant about helping to resolve this matter. I want to know if, by filing for a modification of child support, going to be the right move, to resolving the matter, or even getting things moving forward. I sure could use some help through the proper channels, to close this case, get my money reimbursed, and move on with my life. Can anyone help?
Sincerely,
Benjamin.

Child Support Modification

I have 60% time sharing & my X has 40%. I am primary. We have been divorced for several years. I am confused as to what constitutes a substantial change. Our son was very young at the time we signed the agreement & therefore his needs have changed. My X has switched health insurance carriers since the original agreement. I supply clothes/shoes that go back between our homes. I provide our child's cell phone, tutoring, school supplies & many other things. I do all this because I love our son, but my x-husband is way more comfortable than me financially & doesn't help. I was slaughtered by his attorney when we signed the original agreement so I am very timid about what I should do. He does pay, but it is very minimal. Bottom line is that enough to attempt to make a change?

arrearage on child support

by Robert
(Tampa, Fla., Hillsbrough)

If the child is of age (19 years of age or older) who has the legal right to petition the court for the arrears? Since the child is of legal age and most courts order child support for that child and the best interest of the child, should they be the one that would petition the court and not the parent who has waited, but now upset and petitions for arrears?

May I, as a pro se litigant, request subpoenas in Child Support Modification?

by Amanda
(Bradenton, FL, Manatee County)

My ex filed for modification of court ordered/garnished support based on a layoff. He was not laid off. He quit a job making appx $50,000 a year to go back to school and live on student loans and avoid cont'd support coming out of his check.

I filed my own Answer and Objection and complied w/ mandatory disclosure. HE has an attorney and took 2 months to comply w/ mandatory disclosure and left huge and relevant items out!

I filed a Mtn to Compel right before he "complied" so I think the court is not moving forward with my hearing request.

According to the attorney I consulted, I need to subpoena his former employer to confirm he did not get laid off and for the additional financials. I do not want to pay an attorney $2000 to accomplish this.

Can a pro se individual complete the requests - to the satisfaction of an opposing counsel and the court - to force compliance?

Thank you!

Child Support for paying the State back


(Ft. Lauderdale, FL, US)

I'm currently and have been since birth been on child support for my child that has been in custody of his maternal grandmother since the age of 3 months he is now 11 years old. I would like to know how can the mother of my child also be responsible for paying child support for the relative care checks that the grandmother is receiving. The mother does not live with the child and the grandmother currently has custody of six of the seven children her daughter had and only the fathers of these children are being put on child support and not the mother. Only one of them belong to me.I also know her payments will be going towards the state which would help with the state balance. I feel the mother should also take some responsibility and pay the state back as well. It should be an equal responsibility for both parents especially since the child is in the custody of his grandmother.I don't think the grandmother is enforcing the child support on her daughter, which is not fair because she has all these kids and doesn't care for them or provide any financial support.

terminated legal rights but paying child support and health care

Should my husband be paying child support and health care for his son that he terminated rights for and his parents took over legal guardianship. The boys mother has not been in the picture since the boy was 6 months old and as far as known never terminated her rights or been required to pay child support and health insurance. Her whereabouts are unknown. My husband was very active in his sons life until almost 6 years ago when his parents took the boy and moved out of the state of Florida where the case was started and remains to this day and moved to the state of Montana with no contact whatsoever. My husband moved to Michigan almost 5 years ago and recently found out his parents moved to Michigan with is son. He is also paying back child support since the day his son was born by his federal tax returns being garnished due to the fact that they requested child support after the fact and he terminated his rights around 6 months old and was not required to pay. He has not been allowed contact of any kind with his son for the last 6 years but financial supports him and provides health care. The paper work he signed in Florida he can not find at the Lake County Clerks Office. Can we request visitation or terminate child support and health care. Also the boy will be 16 in March 2015. We would like contact but my major question is should be paying child support and back child support and health insurance since he terminated his rights and has no contact whatsoever? Again he was allowed visitation and spent as much time as possible with his son and was a very active father until his parents took his son away without contact for no apparent reason.

Child Support

by Vikki
(USA)

My husband was served a petition for child support for twins who were 5 days away from their 18th birthday. The twins are a boy and a girl. The boy is a junior named after the guy that signed their birth certificate. My husband did not respond to the petition because he just didn't take it seriously. The Department of Revenue filed a Motion for Default because we did not respond and now there is a hearing set. What should we do?

How long before I can file for child support in a new county?

by Savannah
(Miami, fl)

I currently live in Dade county and will soon be moving to Palm Beach with my fiancée. He currently works there and I will be obtaining a job there. We will be moving into a new larger home with great rated schools for my 2 boys (ages 4 and 6). I currently have not been receiving any child support from their father and I allow for the kids to visit him every other weekend. I would like to start a child support case once I have moved to Palm beach county, fl. My question and concern is when can I start the case after moving to Palm Beach? Am I allowed to move out of the county if I have no court case active? I want to do things correctly.

DOR is reducing what I pay and the ex is avoiding service. DOR said theres nothing I can do??

by Diane
(lee County)

I filed for modification with DOR in April and received notice in Aug it would be reduced by half. However, he avoided service, the papers were returned unserved to DOR Oct 13. Our daughter is living with step mom because he left the home to live with his girlfriend. I informed DOR that he was dodging it and lived at an unknown address and his attorney won't accept it even though she has handled it all along. DOR said there was nothing I could do. Dor seems content that he abandoned a minor child and gets half of my income and will until he is served wherever he is. I have no rights it seems

what can I file?

Child Support Order

Hello,

I just received paperwork that my ex is going after me for child support, because she filed for unemployment assistance. My question is, if I signed the birth certificate years ago (voluntary acknowledgment), but now question whether I am the father, how do I request to have a paternity test done before I start paying child support.

How do I request back support and modify child support going forward to be automatically deducted from my ex’s paycheck.

by Antoinette
(Broward County Florida )

When my ex and I went through our divorce, we agreed to 50/50 timesharing of the kids, which amounted to me only receiving roughly $650 monthly for 3 kids. In lieu of child support, he was paying the mortgage. The problem lies in the fact that he only took the kids 4 times the first year that the final judgement was finalized, and 25 times the second year. We are now in the third year and I am still trying to have this resolved. I originally had a lawyer but things were being held up because we were back and forth or selling the house and trying to do the modification based on allowing me to leave the state with the kids. Now that the house is sold, he has changed his mind and decided that he will no longer allow us to move. Child support for the kids based on actual timesharing numbers is actually more than what he was paying in the mortgage and it was also discovered that there were mortgage payments that were not made. Because my lawyer is non-responsive, I am now trying to figure out the proper forms for me to resolve this issue myself.

Hi there.
I am a self-litigant and I completed the mandatory disclosures packet. All my support has been sent to opposing counsel via her service email address (90 pages). Is this okay?
