Q: 

Day care payments--Q

A:  First and foremost, you should realize the long-term benefits of paying for half of the day care while you child''s mother is attending college. She is taking strides to ensure her future, as well as her childs. Your post sounds rather selfish in that you are making it that much harder on the child''s mother to attend college. Things could be worse; she could be a drug user, prostitute, or unfit mother. However, it seems in this case, she is not. Rather, she is making strides to ensure a better future, and refusing to pay half of the child care...

Q: 

Court ordered medical bills not paid

A:  Laymans take: In theory you could serve her in WY as a small claims action but collection should you win would be daunting . Where is the support order domociled---WY? You may have far more leverage under the existing court support order to seek both enforcement and sanctions (costs)--and if you are skillful as to timing and silent you may be able to have her arrested just when she steps inside WY to pick up the child. Catching her inside WY may be a lot easier that extradition fromTX Caution--courts generally don't toss parents who cannot pay support in jail--impossibility is often a good defense but if a parent "won't " pay support the local court may give them a few days...

Q: 

Termination of Paternity and child support

A:  She is entitled to support until the adoption takes place. You would be notified by the court when that happened so until then you pay support. You can contest the child care costs but you will likely have to pay something. In Texas, once the adoption process starts, child support is no longer owed. You might consult an attorney in Ga where the case takes place for verification. My husband and I have put off seeking to have my husband adopt my son awhile longer so I can continue to have my child support put into an account for my son since it will stop once the adoption process starts. (I personally disagree with...

Q: 

custody stipulation decides child support?

A:  Given the kids have been in ID for so long, that state can take jurisdiction. Also, you can always file for CS. Ex-wives do it all the time. I would say file. You will probably have to file the foreign decree in ID and then ask for the CS there. You might want to get a lawyer for this. It can get sticky. It also then states towards the end that basically his ex-wife is to pay $ to grandparents for child support, and then states that this order does not affect or modify the child support for my husband according to the original divorce in CA back in 199 . A family court order is a living thing and is subject to change...

Q: 

Daycare expenses - on HIS week (not mine)

A:  just my opinion, i would ask him if you could take them instead of putting them in daycare. If he says no then i think you could file with the courts asking that while he is at work you be the childrens care taker and not a daycare center. i believe a judge would be understanding of that. just a thought but worth a try. Hi, Where did the decision come from that you were expected to pay half of the day care? Is it in your court Order? Sue :) I hope the responses you're receiving are helpful. Please note that when you joined this site, you said that you had read its Rules and would abide by them, which...

Q: 

custody issue for my 6 yr old child what should i do

A:  If the original decree was ordered in KC and you still live there, yes you can make her come there for court. You may not be able to get full custody as you have not even seen the child in the last 3 years, but you can certainly ask the court to do something about visitation. You can ask that the ex pay for the transportation as she's the one that moved away without proper notification (she has to prove she did notify you.). child support however is not something that she, or you gets to decide. That amount is ordered by the court and if you want it changed you have to go through the court system. You can't just arbitrarily decide not to pay it, even if you...

Q: 

Tax law On Claiming The Amount For An Eligible Dependant Involving child custody

A:  Hi Clint, have you received a response on this question/issue? I am faced with a similar problem and like you am floored by the fact a dependent claim cannot be made ini joint custody. Sante.....I have contacted the Canada Revenue Agency "Processing Review Agency" at 1-800-631-9010. They told me that I do not qualify, however my ex-wife does! She can claim but I can''t. I still can''t wrap my head around this archaic tax law? I can understand if I didn''t have joint/shared 50/50 custody, then so be it. I am in a circumstance where I should receive the same rights as my ex-wife, but...

Q: 

support mod due to bankruptcy?

A:  Anything can happen, but if he's already paying too little .... If he tries for a modification, I'd counter with addressing that "miscalculation" of which you speak (I gather you're not sufficiently displeased with the amount that you've bothered to take the issue back to court). Talk with a local family law attorney. "He supposedly has been advised by the debt counsellor to seek modification of his support obligation." Or so who says? Himself? Perhaps wishful thinking on his part. My STBX tried for years to escape the inevitable: Being ordered to pay 17% of his income per standards in NYS. He's paying. But for years he kept saying: "My...

Q: 

child care Services

A:  does your agreement specify you have oversight or approval right of the hiring or placement of child care services? does it specify it is limited to a daycare setting? does your agreement say it has to be a certified sitter? If not, and it says you owe for child care, and she hired a babysitter, it sounds like you owe. What is your issue with the babysitter? If your Divorce agreement states that you need to pay for child care then ... you need to pay it! Do you think your ex would allow...

Q: 

First time before the judge...--Q

A:  Do you have any marital assets? If so, those can be used to pay for your lawyer. If he has one, you really need one too. Shared custody is usually 50/50 time with each parent, or something similar. It isn''t 6 months with each parent, but may be 3.5 days per week with each. Or, it may be 3 days with one and 4 with the other. It usually means more time with each parent than the traditional visitation schedule. joint physical custody is pretty much the same thing. joint legal custody means that the parents share equally in all major decisions affecting the child.
