I have a 15 year old. I have been paying her mother under the table for 8 years. She is now getting a divorce and wants to go to court to get more money. I also have a 6 year old who lives with me who I am the primary care taker for. My 15 year ol...
Child support is not based upon the age of the child. You can see what is involved in the calculation at the link here: http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/231/chapter1910/231_1910.pdf. You may be required to help pay for the cyber-school, however, you also may be able to get out of it if you opposed it. You either need to post more facts in a separate question or speak with an attorney.See question
I have already filed the divorce papers and the 90 day period is up 22 Nov. 2016. Can I simply wait to file the consent until after the new law is in place or am I screwed because I already filed for divorce? If my spouse wants to drag it out for...
Cases are governed by the laws in effect at the time of the filing. You could withdraw your complaint and then re-file.See question
My ex is claiming I owe him $900 for fees incurred while on a vacation- plane ticket, restaurant, and hotel fees (he went on vacation with me and willfully paid for both of us). I never agreed to pay him for this. Would this hold up in court?
If the two of you are divorced or were never married, he would have to prove some kind of oral contract. If he paid for everything, I think it would be hard for him to prove this.See question
My daughter passed away she was 17 and me and my wife are divorced and we're currently looking at attorneys. Do we get an even split or can I retain my own attorney
This needs to be in the personal injury section, not divorce. I am re-categorizing it for you.See question
My wife's lawyer quit working for her as she wasn't cooperating. it's been months now and My lawyer filled paperwork and said it's up to judge now. Been about 3 months and almost 4 years since we legally separated.
There is a point in the procedures where she is in contempt of court. The procedures depend upon where you are in the divorce process. If she is refusing to turn over financial information, you may file a contempt petition based upon that refusal. If discovery is complete, you can simply file for appointment of a master (if your county uses masters). If no economic issues, you can file for the divorce decree.See question
I have custody of my child 50% of the time by court order, but for over 6 months I have had the child for 4 nights a week. I was informed a week ago both mother and step-father are using drugs. CYS has been to the house several times. This week CY...
If you have reason to believe that the mother is using illegal drugs in the presence of the child, which the CYS investigation supports, then you should get to court ASAP. You might even want to file an emergency petition for immediate action. However, this type of situation can be tricky. I would suggest that you consult an attorney before taking action. Do so immeditately.See question
My sons father hasn't had physical custody of him in almost 2 yrs, our son goes to see his grandparents almost every weekend (Dads parents) and they have made it very clear he is not taking him anywhere and he hasn't tried either and only sees hi...
Without knowing more, my guess is that the court would keep the current schedule, with the additional requirement that the father can only see his son in the presence of the grandparents. You already have sole physical custody from what you have written. Supervised visitation with the grandparents is the usual remedy for a situation such as you are describing.See question
I have physical custody of my two children. For major decisions I have joint custody. Their grandmother has been telling my children ( one 13; one 17) that I don't have the legal right to say she can't take them to another town for a holiday. She...
What does the order say? Does grandma have custody in the custody order or does her son? If the son, she herself has no rights. However, if he backs her up on this, then the order should state the rights that each of you have. If she or her son have partial custody that does not state any specific limits, then they can take the children out of town for a holiday. Why shouldn't they? Is there a danger there? Opposing family get-togethers is a bad idea unless you have a specific reason. The court likes children to develop family relationships.See question
if i marry a divorced man and he dies do i need to continue paying his alimony? we are gay men
No. Alimony does not extend past the lives of either party. If one dies, the alimony ends. It would not be recoverable from his estate, either. Your sexual preferences do not matter.See question
I was living in Florida, and my sons father got custody of son, it was stated in court that if I was closer it would be 50/50. Since then I have moved back to PA, and now live with my son, his father in the same house. Do I still need to pay chi...
No. The court would likely cancel the child support if you are all living together.See question
