    The answer depends on whether or not you have a settlement agreement or order in place regarding child support and what it says about child support ending. If it says it ends when your son is 18 and no income deduction order is in place, you should stop making payments to your ex. If there is an income deduction order in place and your pay is being garnished, you need to file a motion to terminate the order right away. You likely will not get back the money you overpaid, so the sooner you file...

    Without seeing the child support calculation, it is difficult to say why it is low, but the amount of time each parent spends with a child is a factor in determining child support. If your financial circumstances have changed and/or the 50/50 time-sharing is not being exercised anymore, you may need to file a petition to modify your parenting plan/child support.

    The terms of the order apply until they are modified by further court order, or in some cases, by written agreement of you and your ex. So, the person who was awarded exclusive use and possession of the home, legally is entitled to remain in the home pursuant to the order. The other party may face an eviction action in the future if the party entitled to remain in the house wishes to have the other party leave. On the custody issue, again, the order controls, but the non-custodial parent...

    If the statement was made under oath in a document, this may amount to perjury. It is up to the State to pursue criminal charges. You should meet with a lawyer with whom you are comfortable for more specific guidance.

    I agree with Attorney Golub. There is no definite answer to this question, as it depends on the weight the court gives to these issues in determining custody. One of the factors the court can consider in creating a visitation schedule under Florida Statute 61.13 is the mental health of either parent. This does not necessarily mean a parent will not have time-sharing with a child, it just means the court can consider it in determining what is in the best interest of the child. An in-person...

    If your case is/was pending in PA, you need to speak to a PA lawyer, especially your current lawyer, as he/she will have more insight as to how to proceed than a lawyer on a public forum who has not seen your case file.

    I am not sure why this question is appearing in the family law forum, but you likely need to speak to a general civil litigator. I hope the situation improves for you soon.

    If your first marriage was never dissolved, you are still married to you first husband and your marriage to your second husband is void/invalid. You should speak with a probate lawyer about any benefits you may be entitled to as a result of being married to your first husband. If you want to make sure you are legally married to your second husband, however, you likely need to re-marry your second husband. Before doing so, however, you should visit with a family law attorney to discuss a pre/...

    If this is not income to you, it should not be used as a basis to increase your child support, but even if it was a basis, it sounds like a minimal increase. Arguably, your roommate pays these bills for his enjoyment as well, and this is not a landlord/tenant arrangement, so this may not be considered income to you. Ultimately, if you are served with a petition to modify your child support, you should meet with a lawyer with whom you are comfortable to receive a full and in-depth analysis of...
