Michael’s answer: Whether you are going to get alimony depends on how much your husband makes. You also only have a 2 year marriage which is considered a short term marriage in the eyes of the law. Alimony in your scenario is probably unlikely but I would need more information to be able to answer your question.

As for child support, it is based on both of your incomes, how many overnights each of you get with the children, daycare expense, and health insurance expense.

If u sign over my rights do i still need to pay child support?: I had a one night stand and she got pregnant she lied and said she was on birth control

Asked about 1 month ago in Child Support

Michael’s answer: Unfortunately, the fact that the mother advised you she was on birth control is irrelevant. It is very difficult to have your rights terminated as that is normally not found to be in the best interest of the child. There is a high likely hood that you will need to face the music and be a father to this child. If you want to establish your rights as a father you would need to file a Petition to Establish Paternity which you establish your rights, time-sharing, and child support all in one case.

Ex husband will not pay child support despite four order. And has claimed our children on his taxes, even though i am sole guard: I was awarded sole guardian ship in divorce with husband. He was ordered to pay child support, he has not. I have sole right to claim as dependents on taxes. He however claimed without written consent as per our arrangement.

Michael’s answer: You would need to file a motion for contempt and enforcement of the final judgment. If you would like assistance, we handle these forms of cases and have been practicing in the area of family law for over 12 years.
