Good afternoon, My child support was established through the court system when we divorced 20 years ago. I paid it on and off throughout the years and my debt it's now at 16K and preventing the renewal of my passport. I have a terminally ill...
First, the child would not be the one to waive it as the monies were due to the Mother. It would be the Mother who would have to waive it, and generally speaking, child support cannot be simply "waived" unless the Mother were to swear that you provided support for the child through other means.See question
Can my son's fiancé have an exemption from Jury Service in Florida, Orlando, USA if she is living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia for six (6) months with her fiancé. This is of extreme importance as it is a trial union for the rest of their liv...
She needs to timely respond to the Jury Summons and request an exemption due to the fact that she is temporarily residing outside of the U.S. If she timely requests the exemption, it will likely be granted. Usually there are instructions on how to request an exemption contained within the Summons itself. If not, contact the issuing body.See question

The likelihood of getting "refunded" from the Mother is probably slim and the question would stand as to why you waited so long to find out if you were the biological Father. If you didn't request DNA testing at the time the original child support was ordered so as to confirm paternity, then that's your own fault. But, there may be other facts that may be pertinent but could only be learned during a consultation with an experienced family law attorney. Consult with an attorney in order to best determine your likelihood of success.See question
My children reside in Texas and the order is from new Jersey I need some legal advice
I agree with the other responses: more information is needed. Plus, you didn't even really ask a question. It sounds like your original Final Order was in New Jersey, and now the children have moved to Texas and you moved to Florida. Moving doesn't vacate or invalidate existing Orders and most States will enforce valid Orders from other States. That said, more information is needed.See question
How does the 50/50 Law work if the parents were unwed and the father has been absent? Under what circumstances will a Judge order 50/50 to a parent whose only been in the picture a small amount of time who is demanding they get 50/50?
First, there is no such thing as "the 50/50 Law". As stated by others, the Court looks at many factors in determining what timesharing arrangement is in the best interest of the minor child and, upon proper consideration of those factors, will establish a timesharing schedule, unless the parties can agree to one. This determination is made without any presumption in favor of one parent or the other, but also with the initial presumption that it is in the children's best interest to have regular and frequent contact with both parents. To review these factors, look up Florida Statute 61.13 (3).See question

The answer to your question depends on what your final papers say in regards to child care expenses and also if there are any provisions about "right of first refusal". If reasonable child care expenses are to be shared and are not part of the child support calculation, then you may be required to pay half of the bill for child care. However, if there is a "right of first refusal" and she didn't offer you to care for the children first before placing them in child care for those few days, then you probably wouldn't have to reimburse her any portion of the child care costs. This presumes that she sent them for child care because she was working. You really would need to have your papers reviewed by an attorney in order to fully determine the correct answer to your question.See question
I need my birth certificate but I don't have ID, parents, or guardians, so by FL state law, only my legal representative can request a birth certificate for me. How much does this cost? No research needed.
If it is simply "requesting the birth certificate" on your behalf, which probably would require filling out some sort of request form and sending a letter into the appropriate authority, you should be able to get this done for around $500.00, maybe less, depending on what hourly rate the attorney charges.See question

So sorry to hear of your situation. Unfortunately, this is not a Family Law question. I've reposted your question in the Medical Malpractice arena, as I believe that would be a more appropriate forum for your question. Best wishes.See question

From what you've stated, it sounds as if there was an issue and the child was removed, but then the child was ultimately returned to the Mother. So, if you haven't established your parental rights and had paternity established by a Court (whether through child support or in circuit court), yes, she can move. If you don't want her to move and your paternity has not yet been established, then you need to file a paternity action ASAP which would then prevent her from moving, at least until a Court makes a decision as to whether or not she can move. You should consult with an attorney immediately in order to best determine your potential rights and options and how you should proceed.See question
We are going through a divorce and have two minor children. I make significantly less than him and I was wondering, based on his debt, will I get some alimony.
Alimony is based on multiple factors including length or marriage, need and ability to pay (among others). You need to consult with an attorney in order to determine whether you are entitled to alimony and determine an approximate amount of what you might receive and for how long.See question
