    Jove’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague. The wrong birth date may be an error that can be corrected. If a temporary restraining order has been issued is very important that you seek the assistance of counsel as the possible entrance of a final restraining order has some serious repercussion. Seek the assistance of legal counsel to protect your rights.

  • Emancipation

    If the PAR files a Motion to emancipate a child, can the PPR request an increase in Child Support for the remaining children? Will both parties, PPR and PAR have to provide financial information at the same time? If one applies for an increase i...

    Jove’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues above. The answer to your questions as to whether a PPR can request an increase in child support is "Yes". The party may seek an upward modification of support from the Court upon a showing of changed circumstances such as increased need, increased ability to pay, etc. It will be necessary to review the financial circumstances of both parties to justify an award of either an upward or downward modification of child support.

    Jove’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague above. In order to increase a support order you would need to make an application with the Court requesting an upward modification of support based on a showing of changed circumstances. The changed circumstances being the increased need of support, the ability to pay such as your ex's purported increased income, etc. It is important you seek the services of an attorney.

It is important at this juncture that you seek the legal services of counsel to defend your rights.

    Jove’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague above. Both parties have an argument to make one saying the other is responsible for footing the bill and other saying I am unable to do so because I am unemployed. To save costs on litigating the matter there are different avenues you can take such as further discussions to come to a reasonable resolution, seeking the help of a mediator, etc.
