  • Will I have to pay child support?

    There has been a court order for my sons father to pay me $50 a week since my son was 2. It has never been paid and I have never reported it. My son has lived with his father since he was 11 and he is 15 now. The father is now asking for child sup...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    If the father failed to pay child support as specified in the court order, then he is still responsible for paying the amount owed. You can file a contempt action to seek a judgment ordering him to pay the amount that is in arrears.

    Tiffany’s Answer

    If the judgment was only against you, the creditor can not collect from your wife. However, if you and your wife have joint accounts they can attempt to access monies in that joint account. They can not garnish her wages.

  • How do i know who to pay for my credit card balance that has been sent to collections?

    I have a credit card with a balance, not even sure how much i owe now. It was sent to collections. I get phone calls and mailers from lots of different companies. How do i know which company is the legit company to pay? What's the best way to pay...

    Tiffany’s Answer

    You should contact the agency who sent you the most recent notice and confirm they still own the debt before paying. Because it has already been sent to collections it has negatively impacted your credit score. However, paying it off will of course stop the annoying phone calls and at least show that the debt has been paid on your credit report. The most effective way to repair your credit is to pay off any unpaid debts and continue making on-time payments with any creditors you still have.

  • Does modification review board preferred lawfirm reliable and guarantee when it come to loan modification?

    loan modification

    Tiffany’s Answer

    No one, whether an attorney or any other company, can guarantee a loan modification because it is entirely up to the bank. There may be some advantage with a firm that has been successful in helping homeowners obtain a modification. But I agree with my colleagues that if the firm is guaranteeing a modification you should be very skeptical.

    Tiffany’s Answer

    The best option would be to try to come to an agreement with the mother. Since you already have a visitation schedule in place, the court will require you and the mother to attend mandatory mediation to try to come to an agreement. Because you are requesting the change, you will need to show why the change would be necessary and in the best interest of your children.

    Since it sounds like you already have a visitation schedule in place, the court will require you and the father to attend mediation if you are unable to agree on a change in schedule. Because you are requesting the modification, you will need to show why the change is necessary and in the best interest of your children.

    She is an insurance case manager making approximately 50k a year,she has been gainfully emplo9yed for the majority of our marriage.

    Tiffany’s Answer

    To determine whether or not you are entitled to spousal support, the court will look at a number of factors such as education, experience and whether one spouse has given up a career to care for children, etc. The court will also take into consideration the number of years the couple was married. In your case, if the majority of factors considered by the court weigh in your favor, you may be able to receive some spousal support for a short period of time until you are able to gain employment.
