A number of considerations apply to your question. Are you buying it while still married? Then the presumption is that it is marital property. Second, are you using marital property/funds to purchase the house, or for the down payment? Then the house either is marital or the funds used are marital. This is not good planning unless the house is a real deal.See question
I am owed a lot of money in back child support, is it possible for me to sue in small claims court?
No, and you would not want to. The power of the family court to collect is far superior to anything you can do through small claims. Follow up with domestic relations.See question
my ex and i do not have a child visitation order in place. she is requesting that i start paying child support and is refusing to allow me visitation with our child until the court has determined support and/or visitation.
She is refusing to let you have time with your child in order to maximize the child support that she will receive. File for custody immediately.See question

You are required to file a petition confirming the relocation under 5337e3, along with proof of service and an affidavit. I suggest you do that now.See question

Want to file a petition to modify, he was unemployed when i took him to court so he only pays $80. Need to know if its legal to include spouses income.
No, the equation used to calculate child support is based upon your income and his income. The idea behind it is to calculate what the two of you would have spent on your child had you both married.See question
Background. Ex husband/their father gave me consent to move to another county 52 mi away with no conditions. He disappeared from picture for almost a year. During that time I enrolled our 3 and 4yr Olds in sports at my expense through their new sc...
At three and four years old, I would expect the court to side with the father. He still has rights to see his children, and sports will probably not be more important to the children than having a father. If they were high school football stars, I would change my answer.See question
I have been separated from my husband for about 3 years. We have two children, ages 10 and 15, whom reside with me. We were married on 6/2/10 in Beverly, NJ courthouse. I filed for divorce in 2012 when I was living in NJ but have since moved to PA...
It is unclear from your question whether you actually filed in NJ. I expect that you did not, but if something was filed in NJ, you may need to finish the litigation in NJ. Otherwise, you can file in PA.
As to handling your own divorce, you have to decide whether you understand your rights in the property of the marriage and possible alimony claims. The link below is to a self-help manual for Philadelphia divorces.See question

You may collect spousal support if you are married and now are separated. He must be earning more than you are. Under some circumstances, you cannot collect, such as if you were the one to have committed adultery, but otherwise, you should be able to.See question

If his drug use poses a danger to your child, then you have a good chance of limiting him to supervised visitation. It would not necessarily be with you supervising him. If he is not a danger, then you won't be able to limit him in that way. However, he does not sound like he would be able to demand more time with his child.
You should probably discuss this in more detail with an attorney in your area.See question
