    You need to go to mediation, so figure out how to pay for it or go file at the clerk's office claiming indigency, or the inability to pay your court fees. They may offer you a payment plan. If you don't come up with a new timesharing schedule at mediation, you will eventually get a hearing before your judge to request a new schedule.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You can file to have the injunction dismissed as she is demonstrating that she is not in reasonable fear of harm if she is trying to contact you. Alternatively, you can ask for the injunction to be modified so that emailing her back would not be prohibited.

  • I owed arrears on my child support. I pay the arrears with my current child support order.

    Can the IRS take my income tax return? Even though the arrears are being paid in the current order? If the arrears are taken will they automatically adjust my child support order?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Yes, your tax refund can be intercepted. Your order will not be modified, but your account will be updated to reflect the funds being applied toward your arrearages.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    She can certainly tell the realtor and/or the landlord that she moved out. The lease you signed would then dictate what actions the landlord has the right to take. Many leases have a provision that allows the landlord to provide you with notice that they are terminating the lease. If they are concerned that without your wife's income you may not make rent, they could end the lease if such a provision exists.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Unfortunately, there is case law that says you cannot file an action to establish paternity of this child potentially if either of the legal parents object. You should immediately speak to an experienced family law attorney.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Unmarried fathers must file a paternity action in court to establish their parental rights. If your Che's father successfully controls his drug and alcohol issues, he should eventually be able to have a substantial relationship with the child.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You have not provided enough information to answer this question. Who was given temporary custody? You, or someone else? What is the status of the other parent?

  • If husband has filed a disestablishment of paternity but continues to want to visit with the child, what should I do?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    The real question is what are you trying to accomplish? If you want him to be a part of your child's life, then let him, regardless of whether legally he is still the father. If your real concern is that you want your husband to pay child support for this child, ask yourself if that is really fair. Your husband had no say in this child's conception, and you know the biological father. That man is responsible for financially supporting your child, not your husband. He who plays pays.
