In the middle of a divorce that is so far uncontested. I was told that the child support can only be retro is the divorce is uncontated.
These are two different matters: child support and the divorce. If the divorce is truly uncontested, then you should not been having this issue, as both of you have fully agreed to all of the terms. Unless you agree that there is no child support arrears owned, a determination as to the amount of retro will need to be calculated. You should consult with a family lawyer to do the proper calculations of child support and, if need be, the amount of arrears. Good Luck.See question
Single mother of newborn in Tpa, Fl, lost my job and need to move to my family in GA. The babys father is not on birth certificate and does not pay court ordered child support or interact with the child. Can he stop me from moving?
I agree with Mr. McGinn. You can go anywhere you want. Once you have been outside the state for more than 6 months, the state has lost jurisdiction and he will need to file his Petition to Establish Paternity where you are. If you are going to move, do it now.See question

You will have to be physically in Puerto Rico to do it. If they are alive, you will need a notarized and apostille authorization from them. If cannot go to Puerto Rico, you will need to retained an attorney license in Puerto Rico to make the request. Everything in Puerto Rico gets registered and it is accessible only to certain people.

I agree with Ms. Arroyo. In PR, if she got married when she was 18, you should had asked for the child support to end at that time. She became an adult when she got married. If your original child support from PR or NJ? If the original child support order comes from NJ, you need to ask these questions to an attorney license to practice in NJ. I am not license in NJ. My comments are only related to PR law. Good Luck.See question

I agree with Mr. McDonald. There are various factors that a court would evaluate in approving relocation. Retain counsel; these cases are, in many instances, more stressful and complicated than a divorce. She had time to think over your proposal and she rejected it. If you are serious of wanting to take your daughter with you, start the relocation process and hire an attorney. Good Luck.See question

I agree with Mr. Hoffman. He gave you the site where you can get the proper documentation. You can also read Rule 1.370 of the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure (Request for Admissions). Serve him with a Request for Admission and ask him to admit the facts. Do yourself a great favor and at least consult with a Family Attorney. Good luck.See question
