You might want to consult with a Michigan attorney as well to be safe. If you have a child support order enforceable in Florida has the Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement garnished any money from him previously? It is possible you may receive a lump sum once he obtains the social security depending on whether the arrears have been established. Consider meeting with a family lawyer to go over your child support documents in person.See question
Hello, Recently engaged though the wedding is not for some time. Probably a common question but I make significantly more then my partner. Trying to be smart in the event something happens to the marriage. Is a prenup the only method to keep...
A prenuptial agreement is the best course of action. There are some limited ways to maintain separate premarital property and assets but the possibility of blending the line and/or getting caught with an active or passive appreciation can cloud the matter. Best course of action is to meet with a financial planner and family lawyer to see what your options are.See question
Child support s purge taken on me for 2000.00
You will want an attorney to assist you with negotiating away the purge based on the facts presented. You need to modify the parenting plan and child support to take into account your current situation and see if the mother will agree to enter into a stipulation to waive the back owed support. Even with an agreement with the mother it is still up to the court whether they waive the back owed child support since child support is a right of the child.See question
I got a stranger pregnant. Thats about all I know about my situation as of now.
It depends on a lot of factors. If the mother has the baby she can seek child support against you. There might be implications depending on whether you want to have contact with the child. If the sexual encounter was not consensual then there could be criminal implications.See question
I am currently on two years of house arrest with a ankle monitor and I am court ordered to pay child support. I am currently unemployed and seeking employment and I am being told that my probation can be violated. Is it possible?
You have criminal and family law implications here. If you are on house arrest and unemployed you need to consider filing a request to temporarily abate or modify (depending on other factors not provided here) the child support so you don't continue to have back child support add up.See question
My girlfriend's husband filed divorce papers..But Boone can find her to get served the papers
It would be extremely wise to keep track of the process because if he is unable to serve her he may be able to proceed by publication and she could end up not participating in the process which might negatively impact her. She can contact his lawyer or the process server (or even go to the clerk of court) and obtain the paperwork, accept service of process and file the response before 20 days from date of service. Best course of action would be to meet with a family lawyer to discuss her rights.See question

If you don't want to open the door to him having custody or time sharing then you can open up Achilles support case through the department of revenue child support office. It is possible that once you do that he might file for timesharing through domestic relations court to get a parenting plan. An unmarried mother has a superior right to her child over the father when there is no paternity case or final judgment.See question

You can enter into a settlement agreement related to what you both agree to and execute it. You can file the agreement with the court. The clerk of court is not going to give you legal advice on how to proceed. If you are both pro se (without attorneys) you might want to request a case management conference with the judge to see how best to proceed. You can also consider going to mediation at the courthouse in order to come to a full agreement.See question

It depends on a number of factors and the Court will take into account what expenses are necessary for the well being of the child. Be aware that once the father is served with a petition for child support he may petition for time sharing. That will impact the overall child support.See question
