Now that I Have custody of my child, How do I Terminate my child Support Order?

A:  “In NY, with a NYC child support order, how do I get the child support terminated when my daughter lives with me now, the non-custodial parent?” You will need to go back to the court that issued the child support order, and request a modification of your child support based on a change of circumstance (namely, in this case, that your daughter now lives with you)....

How to Regain custody of a child After Giving Temporary Guardianship to the Biological father

A:  “About seven years ago my fiance was being evicted from her home. With her daughter’s best interests in mind she signed over temporary guardianship to the child’s father with the understanding that the child would be returned to her once she got back on her feet. When she attempted to retrieve her daughter the father refused to give her back. She attempted to take him to court.

Frightened by...

Q: 

Getting custody of unborn child?

A:  I''m assuming you have established legal custody to the children you have now. If not, you should. You can get help in doing this by filing for Welfare. In this regard, your income is not a factor of consideration. My oldest gets $1000 a month for caring for the son of her sister. As for the unborn child. In Utero custody challenges is a shaky enough area to start with for a good father, so it eould be that much worse for you trying. http://waits4u.com/dad/InUterocustody.pd… Family Services can take a child at the time of a new birth, which requires a child In Need of Care order from a court,...

Q: 

My husband has a child (2 or 3 years old now) and he is on the birth certificate. They have never been married and no blood work has ever been done. I have heard rumors that the mother lost custody of the child to her own mother when child protective services were called on her. My husband was never notified to any of this at the time.Our question is that we are now hearing from the mother that the grandmother is looking for file for child support against my husband. As a grandmother, does she have the ability to do this? Are our chances of fighting for custody stronger if we have to fight the grandmother even though we have limited involvement in the child''s life thus far?My husband, in attempts to keep drama, stress and financial hardship at a minimum is concidering signing over his parental rights so the child will be able to be raised in a single family environment instead of two drasticly different households. If he does sign over his parental rights, will the grandmother still be able to pursue us for child support?We are looking at all of our options - the decision we need to make is going to be a hard one no matter which one we chose to take. Please offer some advice. I wish we had more time to decide.

A:  Your lack of relationship with the child of course would be a hindering factor, but would not be insurmountable IF you are better able to provide a suitable environment for this child than Grandmother is. If he relinquishes his rights, such DOES NOT affect his obligation to pay support. We can certainly help you consider and then pursue your options. This is obviously a very important matter, and you should not go in alone.
