He could file an action to rescind the acknowledgement of paternity. You really need to speak with an attorney in our area regarding your options.See question
The father lives in Tuscaloosa Alabama and hasn't paid child support since 2009
Hopefully when you divorced or established child support, you also included a provision for your son's father to maintain a life insurance policy that names you or your son as the beneficiary of that policy. If so, upon your son's father's death, the life insurance is there to cover the child support obligation. Your son may also have a claim against his father's estate depending upon the terms of his Father's will or otherwise. Finally, you can seek assistance through Social Security.See question
We are 6 hours away from each other. So one of us would have to come to court where the other one lives
Technically, the divorce should be filed wherever the defendant resides or where you and your spouse lived together when you separated. However, if you know where your husband lives, you have to have him personally served either by a sheriff's deputy, a process server, or by certified mail. You cannot just publish that in the newspaper.See question

You can always file for divorce on your own behalf, but you will need to let the Court know that he is not of sound mind and ask the Court to appoint a guardian ad litem to represent his best interests. I would not attempt to you any power of attorney in your possession to sign the divorce documents for him. This may be a more costly option than you were anticipating because unless he has assets from which to pay the Guardian Ad Litem, you may have to pay those fees as well. However, this is the most ethical way to handle the situation. You need to discuss the matter in person with a family law attorney in your area though to determine how this is handled in your particular area.See question

Thank you for your post. I always suggest working with an agency that has the resources to match you and your baby with a family that has been vetted by the agency. Catholic Family Services and Agape are the two agencies I most often recommend.See question

I agree with my colleague. You should never go into court unrepresented. In the Huntsville, Alabama area, you can contact the Madison County Volunteer Lawyer Program to see if you qualify for a volunteer lawyer. Legal Services may also be able to assist you.See question
I am in the middle of a divorce and 3 months ago we were 3rd on the docket. We were not seen and our court date was moved out for 3 more months. Now we are 4th on the docket. At this rate we will never get to court.
I'm sorry this process has been so frustrating. The cases are generally placed on the docket in chronological order by the date that the case was filed. So, if you are 4th on the docket, the three cases ahead of you are older than yours. However, cases often settle right before the trial date; so, you may still get your case resolved. It is also possible that the cases ahead of yours will get resolved prior to the docket call. If so, you will move up. Good luck.See question
My ex husband is not paying me the right way with child support. Basically under the table. He is not giving me money when hes suppose to always skips days. He doesnt call to check in on his child. He skips his weekends alot.
Child Support and Visitation are not connected. You cannot withhold visitation just because he is not paying his support. The appropriate method to handle your ex's failure to pay his child support is to seek relief from the Court.See question

I agree with my colleague. If she had been fired prior to the filing of the complaint for divorce, you may have had an option to seek some of the funds from the ensuing court case. However, since she was not fired until after the divorce was filed, I am afraid you are out of luck.See question
My 2 children express interest in living with their father the majority of the time. We currently share time 50/50 and neither side pays child support. The children are both in high school. My question is, will I be REQUIRED to pay child suppor...
If you and your husband reach an agreement and you can justify why you are both agreeing to you not paying child support, it is possible the judge will accept that. However, your ex can always go back and ask for the court to require you to pay child support later based upon changed circumstances. So, there is no way to guarantee that you will not have to pay some amount of child support if you give your ex physical custody of the children.See question
