My ex lives in Jackson, TN. I live in Chattanooga, TN. Our parenting plan grants visitation to my daughter's mother every other weekend and we have a set place and time that is half way between the two cities. 8pm est on that Friday. She can't mak...
You can technically go by the PPLAN, but it seems like this is a one time request with a legitimate reason. If you were my client I would advise you to take the child. She obviously is trying to spend time with her daughter (which I assume is in the best interest of the child). Finally, you never know when you might need Mom to change some plans to accommodate your schedule?See question
I have been divorced and I have a child with my ex-husband, and just got engaged today with my now fiancé. My ex-husband left when she was 4 months and is not and really has not been around in my daughter's life--he sees her when he feels like it...
After you get married, why not have an attorney contact your ex-Husband and see if he would be willing to let your new husband adopt the child. That would end his child support obligation and you can move forward with your new family without the risk of bio-Dad "showing up" and confusing the child.
Alternatively, look at your existing Parenting Plan and see how many days he has actually been using, If he has not been seeing the child according to the Plan, you can adjust the days and increase his child support.See question
I had a child with a man out of wedlock. He and I are no longer together and he's threatened to sign his parental rights away. He's toxic and while he does see our child every weekend, his mother is the one providing care for her up there. He's g...
The good news is that he cannot sign his rights away. It sounds like you need to Amend your Permanent Parenting Plan. That will address the number of days he is actually spending with the child. He cannot get out of child support by quitting his job. The Court will "impute" income to him. That means that they will look at what he was making before and set child support on that amount.
If you feel that your child is in a dangerous situation you can always contact DCS.See question
The mother of my child has opened up a child support case against me, in Memphis. She has evidence that I have held myself out as being the father, as well as a letter where I stated that I am the father. I live in Las Vegas. I got a letter from t...
Take the genetic test in Las Vegas. If you are not the Father, the issue is settled.
If you are the Father, you will likely be placed on child support. Then you will need to come to TN in order to file a Permanent Parenting Plan and arrange to spend some time with the child. The amount of child support you pay is directly related to the number of days of parenting time you have. The more days you have, the less you pay.See question
I had a son with my ex girlfriend of seven years. About three and a half years ago, I had some legal situations come up, and I had no choice but to move from Connecticut to Tenn where I had support. She told me she would move down with my son afte...
It is unfortunate that you cannot see your sign. You cannot give up your rights unless a step-parent is willing to adopt. You CAN file for contempt because she is keeping him from seeing you. You can also hire a CT lawyer to see if you can get a reduction in Child Support. There may be services in CT to assist you for free, but I am not licensed there. Why not put it out to the CT lawyers here on Avvo and ask how to get a reduction in child support?See question
Me and my husband are fixing to get a divorce but we haven't yet. And I fixing to buy a vehicle will I have to pay him 1/2 if I buy the vehicle before our divorce if final
Assets acquired during the marriage are subject to being divided. If you are using money from your joint checking account to pay for the car, he could ask for half of that back. It is better to file for divorce first and wait 60 days (if you do not have minor children). If a divorce is filed there is a "Statutory Injunction" on acquiring new debt until after the divorce is final.See question
My ex wife and I will be attending mediation soon.Child Support hasn't been ordered. I requested a DNA test. We agree on most things. She's purposing that I pay $415 a month for 1 child with no special expenses. We both make minimum wage. She will...
You need to fill out a TN Child Support Worksheet. It is a pre-determined formula that calculates your child support obligation. You get credit for things like paying health insurance, daycare costs, etc and credits are in place for other children that are nit children in common. You can (though it is unlikely) get a "downward deviation" from the support amount but you must have a REALLY good reason. There is an app for the Child Support Worksheet or it can be found on TNcourts.govSee question
what can i do if im paying child support for a child, but that child isn't living with his mom. And that's who the payments are going to
If the child is not residing with the mom, you could think of petitioning to be the primary parent and have her pay child support to you. Because you are court ordered to pay mom, you must continue to pay until a court charges it. That should be done through a Petition to Modify. If you have an existing PPLAN, you need to go to mediation first.See question
I signed the Birth certificate but I made a big Mistake on that when I was young now The mother been marry and moved out of Tn and I'm owning the state for back child support for a grown child and there is no DNA tooken need help
You need an attorney to help you. Did you have a relationship with the child? Have you ever paid support? There are so many factors to be considered before you can get out of paying that back support. The court will definitely want ti know why you haven't addressed this issue for 18 plus years,See question
MYbills are based on his payments that are to be deposited on the 1st and 15th of each month and he has been late the last month and has cost me overdrafts that I can not afford
File a Petition for Contempt. He will have 30 days to Answer and then it can be placed on the docket. File it with your original divorce court under the same docket number. There is a fee to file it, but you can ask to be reimbursed for those and your lawyer fees (unless there is a clause in your Marital Dissolution Agreement prohibiting it). You can also ask for the overdraft fees.See question
