My ex closed me owing child support, but will I still owe the 32,000 in back child support?
Child support basically become judgments as they come due, meaning that each time a payment is missed the judgment against you gets larger and you cannot retroactively terminate a child support obligation to date prior to the date a proper motion was filed.
In some circumstances the Court can apply principles of equity to find that the judgment is not enforceable (meaning it won't force you to pay it).
I'm not clear what you mean by stating that your ex "closed" you. If you mean they closed their case with OCSE, then, yes, you would still owe the arrears.See question
I live in one county and he lives in another. I need to know which county to file in, or does it have to be filed in the county we got married in?
Generally you file in the county that the person filing for divorce lives in.See question
My husband has been in prison for a little over 8 years and I want to divorce him...he currently is in a Prison in Arizona. I live in Arkansas and have for the last 6 years. We have 3 children together, but one is now grown. I spoke with him and...
You can file a complaint for divorce in the Circuit Court of the County you live in, though there isn't enough information in your post to determine whether the Court would have personal jurisdiction over your husband. This means that if the Court doesn't have personal jurisdiction it can't address division of property and debt (which given the length of your separation may not be an issue anyway) or to order child support.
As to whether to represent yourself or hire an attorney, as you say it is best to ensure that you do it right the first time and so the question is whether you feel confident you can do so on your own. Most family law attorneys offer free initial consultations, and if you hire a local attorney the cost should be relatively inexpensive.See question

Keep in mind that it is often difficult to "know what it is that you don't know," and so you have to use self-help forms at your own risk. There may be legal impacts that you don't know that you need to address if you don't consult with an attorney.See question

You'll need to contact an attorney in California, preferably one that is local to the Court that is handling your ticket. Try re-posting your question under the city in California that you received the ticket in.See question

Assuming you are in England, Arkansas (U.K. it's fairly common for English posters to inadvertently post here, and English law can vary from U.S. law) you are within your rights to go by your middle name -- though you may need to sign your full name for some legal documents -- especially things like deeds.See question
My best friend who I warned about this is "dating" a girl who's 14. And he's 20. She'll be 15 in may. Well her parents seen him kiss her. They haven't had sex or nothing thank God. But he's worried they'll turn him in for statutory rape. I told hi...
In addition to just being a really bad idea for a 20 year-old to be dating a 14 year-old, there are other sex crimes that he can be charged with even if it falls short of rape (and if convicted he would be required to register as a sex offender).
Her parents would also be entitled to forbid them to see each other, and they could file legal action against him if he continues to try and see her.See question

You need to file a petition to have the guardianship terminated.
The language set out in the guardianship order will effect what you need to be able to show the Court in order to have the guardianship terminated. Hopefully the order reflects that you just agreed to allow your mother to exercise guardianship and does not make any finding of unfitness. If that is the case, things will be much easier for you.See question

If you and your ex-husband are in agreement with everything, you can file a motion to modify the visitation, and then draft an Agreed Order setting out the agreements to submit to the Court for its approval.
Of course, unless there is something in the order prohibiting it, as the custodial parent you can always agree to allow the other parent to have extra time with the child regardless of whether or not the Court has entered an order modifying the visitation.See question
