Can I be taken to court for child support twice after the case got dismissed last year ?

Q: I was orderd to court twice last year for child support and paternity the mother didn’t show up twice so they dismissed the case now I’m being ordered to come to court again I thought this situation was over when they dismissed the case last year

A: David’s Answer: The Court can’t really prohibit her from continuing to file for child support. That said, if she shows a pattern of filing & then not appearing, the court could consider entering sanctions and/or a counsel fee award against her as a penalty. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
