Hello, Could you help me to figure out when child support will terminated, please? I am in divorce 2 years. My child turned on 18 in April,2017. The divorce paper states that : Support shall be paid until the children reach the age of 18 ...
Ask ex, child, and school for proof of full-time enrollment. If your case is in Kent RJC, one of the court commissioner's down there, in a similar circumstance recently, required the child (age 18) to be taking and passing 5 full credits to be considered enrolled. In your case, the child support shouldn't be going to ex if child doesn't live with ex.See question
My ex wife is moving out of state and has custody and has agreed to let our daughter stay with me and we want to file a new parent plan. We live in pierce county Washington
If you already have a signed final parenting plan entered with the court, then you can file an agreed amended parenting plan, which spells out the change in custody and a new visitation schedule.See question

An emancipated minor is like an adult for the most part and has the power and capacity of an adult:
(a) The termination of parental obligations of financial support, care, supervision, and any other obligation the parent may have by virtue of the parent-child relationship, including obligations imposed because of marital dissolution;
(b) The right to sue or be sued in his or her own name;
(c) The right to retain his or her own earnings;
(d) The right to establish a separate residence or domicile;
(e) The right to enter into nonvoidable contracts;
(f) The right to act autonomously, and with the power and capacity of an adult, in all business relationships, including but not limited to property transactions;
(g) The right to work, and earn a living, subject only to the health and safety regulations designed to protect those under age of majority regardless of their legal status; and
(h) The right to give informed consent for receiving health care services.

My ex and I have had our parenting plan in place for about a year and a half now with the court. He takes him every other weekend starting Friday till Sunday evening. In October he stopped taking him on Fridays because of his new job and started ...
I don't think you need to bother with a formal written modification so long as you have a paper trail including texts/emails. If one of you does not like the new schedule, then you could insist on following the written version.See question
My 5 yr old nephew came to live with us a few months ago after being bounced around from relative to relative. His father is in jail and his mother is wanting to give us custody. We are trying to do this as quickly and easy as possible. What would...
I would do third party custody first by personally serving biological mom and dad. Then, later, file for adoption. It all requires personal service on biological parents to see if they will consent, object, or even appear.See question
My daughter's father has been paying me $50 a month for the past 7 years. The first year he was unemployed, which is why it was set to $50 a month. After the first year or so, he finally got a job. I never asked to modify it because we were doing ...
If you filed for modification and the amount per month goes up, then the court will set an effective starting date for when the new amount is due. Sometimes, the court starts the new amount of child support the date the modification request was made, the date of the court hearing (which can be 3-4 months after the modification was filed), or some other time in the future. The court could also increase it slowly (called incrementally) if it increased by 30% or more.See question

Your remedy is to go to court and seek a temporary order, which gives you custody or at least spells out visitation. If there is already a court order, then you could ask for contempt (violation) of the court order.See question
