The kid doesn't stay with me but I buy diapers etc doesn't that qualify as child support
Each parent owes a duty of support to their children. While buying diapers and other things is great, that is not considered child support. Only payments made directly to the other parent are considered support. So, yes, it is possible that you could still be ordered to pay child support.See question
Me and my sons mother are not together as well as my name isn't on the birth certificate but she's threatening me to have me on child support. How are the child support delivered if I live in another county as well as city, can I just not show up...
It is not a requirement that you be listed on the birth certificate, but if you are indeed the father of the child, you may want to have that corrected. In any event, as stated in the previous answer, the court will establish paternity via a DNA test as part of the proceeding on child support. If you are certain you are the father you may want to begin making child support payments on a voluntary basis. Otherwise, you run the risk of building up a substantial arrearage. Good luck to you.See question
Husband and I purchased a car a couple months ago, now we are going through a divorce. Even though this may not matter, I would like to mention the car was 4,000, he paid 1500 and I paid the remaining 2500. I know we have equal ownership, I am a c...
Assuming the two of you cannot reach an agreement, who gets the car would be part of an equitable distribution claim (ED). "Divorce" is but one claim in a divorce proceeding. As stated in the previous answer, you also have claims for child custody and child support. Also, as you are a student, and your husband works full time, you may be entitled to post separation and alimony. Finally, you need to make a claim for equitable distribution. Even if you do not have any other property, ED is how you get the issue before the judge so that a determination can be made as to who gets the car. Good luck to you.See question
There was a writ of possession on my door to leave in 7 days. I never received a notice with a court date so I can't appeal. What can I do?
First you need to go to the Clerk of Court's office in your county and check the court file for service of process. A summary ejectment action is typically handled in small claims court. The judge's or magistrates handling these cases will not proceed unless the Plaintiff has proof of service. One possible type of service is certified mail, for which you or someone in your residence would have had to sign for and pick up from the Post Office. Or you may have been served by the county sheriff's department. With the sheriff you would either be served personally, i.e. the deputy physically put the papers in your hand, or by posting, meaning that a notice was attached to the front door of your residence. If any of these things happened there will be evidence of it in the court file, so check there first. Most likely you were served by posting. Regardless, if any of these types of service occurred you need to start packing. Otherwise a deputy will be at your residence at the designated time to remove you from the property. Good luck to you.See question

No, the will does on supercede the deed. The 1/3 interest deeded by your mother to your now deceased sibling will pass to said sibling's heirs subject to mom's life estate.See question
I was given 30 days to pay 50.00 and keep tags but missed deadline. I missed interpret rd an interim letter from DMV that I had 30 days from date of letter. I contacted DMV but only recourse is legal action or turn in plate which would cause a se...
Unfortunately in the law mistake is not a defense. While turning in your tag and applying for a new tag may cause you hardship, I assure you the expense of attempting to litigate what is most likely a losing cause will cause you much more financial hardship. If the DMV does not have an administrative process for appealing the revocation you are left with only the one choice in my opinion. This may very well be one of those situations where you just have to bite the bullet, suffer the pain, and get it done. Good luck.See question

I would like to void my notarized Agreement with my husband for child support and file through the state instead. Is this going to be a problem if we have a notarized agreement?
While your current agreement is presumably a valid agreement, there is nothing prohibiting you from filing an action for child support. However, you will have the burden of showing that the amount you agreed to is not reasonable to provide for your child or children.See question
I was a stay at home parent while my ex spouse worked. We got divorced and my ex spouse offered to pay my rent in the same city instead of me going to another city to work. I agreed and we both signed this new lease. Now that I have found employme...
If I read I your question correctly, you and your ex made this agreement post-divorce. If that is the case, then it is a matter of contract law and would not fall under the equitable distribution statute. My answer is predicated on that assumption. If you have a pre-divorce agreement, whether a separation agreement or an ED order, I would need to read that agreement before I could properly answer the question.
First, I need more clarification as to what you are being threatened with because it is unclear to me who "they" are. Has the lease run its course? If the lease is still in operation, and as both of you signed the lease, the landlord can sue either or both of you for failure to pay the rent. It is called joint and several liability. Whether or not you could seek recourse from your ex for any rent you had to pay is a different question. If the lease has ended, and your ex is threatening to sue you to recoup the rent he has paid if you move, he will have to prove why you are obligated to repay him.
If the lease is still in operation, one could argue that if you move you have breached the agreement between you and your ex, i.e. he will pay the rent if you do not move. If you move, he can argue he is no longer obligated to pay the rent. Again, in that case the landlord could sue either or both of you.
If the lease has expired, there is no longer any rent to pay, so one could argue that your agreement is complete and you are free to move. I do not believe you would be obligated to repay any rent, but your ex could certainly sue you and make that argument. I just think that would be a very difficult argument to win.
The bottom line is, it depends. Consult with an attorney in your area to determine exactly what your rights and obligations are at this point. Good luck to you.See question
