No, the child doesn't have to live with a parent for that parent to be awarded child support. However, you do need a support order. A support order requires someone to pay someone else money and is enforceable until it is changed or expires. So if there was a support order for you to pay her for support and you did not, you owe the back support to her.
You need to see a lawyer about the issues.See question
18 years old sense May. Doesn't live at home. Full scholership at Chattanooga. Work is still taking out the payments. Do I have to go to TN. For a lawyer or can one here in AL. Do it ? TN. State law says it will stop at 18, and all is paid in full.
Where is the support order from? If it was in Tennessee you need to file in Tennessee and in most states you have to have a licensed attorney in that state to act for you in court. So, you can use an Alabama lawyer if he or she is also licensed or associated with a Tennessee lawyer.See question
Currently my ex-husband has 70% custody and I have every other weekend. The divorce was final in 2013. Summer is every other week. My son turns 16 in 2 days and wants to live with me and has since he was 12. Can he advocate for himself now? He is ...
We do not allow children to make these decisions so you son has to wait until he is emancipated or turns 18 before he can decide where he lives. Further, if you take this matter back to court I can almost guarantee there will be allegations that it is YOU and not the child who is encouraging this action.
If the custody does get changed the father has a right to retain items he owns, which includes vehicle since the child is not old enough to have a vehicle ownership in his name. The same applies to allowing him to work in the family business and "fun things" might be terminated for a lot of reasons.
In addition to the above, you need to realize that the standard for changing custody in Washington is usually a "Material change in circumstance with the residential parent that has occurred since the entry of the last order" and a child getting older or wanting to live with the other parent does not qualify without a lot more, especially if the desire goes back four years.

I am wanting a divorse after 49 yrs
Without more information this question cannot be answered. Alimony is based upon a very wide range of reasons and you need to know those reasons. You start, for example, with need and ability to pay. If you receive 65% of the assets, none of the debt and our spouse is minimally employed you will have a hard time getting alimony. Further, health of both parties, work history, education, other forms of income all play a part.
So, to answer your question as best as possible you are entitled to look at the issue of alimony and the court will have the power and authority to award it (regardless of length of marriage by the way) but whether or not they will give you anything is up in the air. Hire a lawyer who can gather this information and make some predictions.See question
I am filing a parenting plan and am unsure of where to file; either Spokane County (where I live) or Whatcom County (where my ex and son live)? I moved to Spokane May 2016 and my ex has been the custodial parent of our son since March 2016.
Where was the dissolution action filed? You normally file any Modification where the original action was located.
You can file in either county but expect a change of venue request because the witnesses relating to custody will be where the child resides-people like schools, medical facilities, playmates and their parents, day care providers, if any and those sorts of people. Further, if a GAL is appointed he or she will want to be able to talk to these folks as well.
You should have a lawyer helping you with this. I have never seen a case where a divorce has been granted that has children unless there is already a parenting plan which means you have a very different burden of proof. If this is a visitation adjustment you may have to do mediation before you can seek the modification as well.See question
I am bipolar. Was just diagnosed after I had a manic episode and stole a vehicle. That is where I was charged with theft of property. I was too scared to go to trial at the time so I accepted a plea deal. Now I am on felony probation. Can I appeal...
You cannot appeal a plea deal. You could file a motion to set aside the plea but it has to be in the court where you entered the plea to begin with. It would be up to the trial judge to accept or deny the motion to set aside the plea.
If you were successful the end result is that the original charge is reinstated and you would still have to stand trial on that charge. If you were convicted it is a pretty good chance that you would do jail time.
If the trial court declined your motion and would not set aside the plea, you could appeal that decision but the chances of success are very small.See question
My public defender has told me that since I accepted the plea deal rather than going to trial that I have no choice and that there is no possible way to be let go early. I want to re enlist in Army but the Army will not write a letter because doin...
What do you think a public defender is if not a professional? You have already been told that you have no options once you make a request and it is denied. Because early release from probation is discretionary with the trial court a court of appeals will not get involved. Appellate courts have made it plain that they deal with legal issues not factual ones and a decision dealing with whether an early termination of probation is appropriate is a factual determination.
As to the probation putting your living situation in a bad place you have no one to blame but yourself, since you're the one who committed the crime for which you are being punished. It's called the consequences of criminal activity.See question

Hard to answer this question without a little background. How long ago was the shoplifting? If you are talking about last weekend the situation is different than if you are talking about October 1st.
My suggestion is that you do nothing and stop worrying about the matter. To begin with , you cannot deal with something that hasn't happened yet. In addition, a shoplifting charge is a misdemeanor, usually, and there are remedies that do not include conviction. Additionally, sometimes you can use the "compromise of misdemeanor" statute to take care of the matter.
If you get charged you are entitled to a lawyer. The lawyer knows how to handle these matters. However, in the future, do not commit crimes. You already know, based on the way you feel right now that it is not worth the risk.See question
