    You will have to make an emergency application to the court to address the issue of schooling for this upcoming year. If you do not an attorney you should hire one to assist you. Best of luck.

  • SCU Hearing in Queens, NY. I am up to date on my child support, I pay it on the 1st and 15th.

    Lance’s Answer

    Unfortunately you cannot stop her from having it paid through SCU. As far as keeping the payments to the 1st and 15th you can make the request but because the agreement says the 1st the judge may not honor it. The modification of the amount is also possible. It’s possible She could get access to your tax returns, paystubs and financial statements. If you need representation you can contact my office at 516-488-2255 to schedule a time to come in to the office.

  • My husband filed for divorce, when I left my daughter with him for the weekend he took her out of the house to his parents house

    Lance’s Answer

    Hire an attorney as soon as possible. If you are unable to hire one by Monday you still need to appear in court and request an adjournment for the purposes of hiring an attorney.

  • Joint Custody Order

    Lance’s Answer

    I am not sure what you are stating "is not allowed", but a Court has the power grant 50/50 custody if they feel it is in the best interest of the child. I cannot state why the attorney for the child didn't "push for it to begin with", but the attorney for the child doesn't control the court decision. You should have an attorney to represent you in the case to ensure the issue is dealt with properly.

    You will not have to pay back child support. First you will need to file a paternity petition. Once paternity is established you will be able to seek visitation rights and will be subject to an order for child support.
