Q: A friend of mine received a noticed back in 2005 he owed 32,000 in child support through Social Services. He looked up his legal records for liens and judgements and it states 16,600.00 with a "TRA " as a code. All NYS tax commission judgements have been vacated, but Social Services comes up as TRA. His kids are in their 30's and 40's now. The last filed lien was in 1994 but the most recent letter was in 2005. What does all this mean?
A: Child Support judgments are generally good for 20 years. That said, they can generally keep renewing them until the youngest child is 21 - in which case they can keep collecting until the youngest child is 41. Your friend is well advised to collect copies of all judgments & orders form the courthouse, then bring them to an attorney for a review. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Support attorney.
Q: Child support amount was stipulated in divorce. He does not pay 17% as per NY law. I've tried having it modified but I get denied each time. There is a big difference between our salaries, his is much greater. I feel I get denied because he has a lawyer, that related with law jargon in the court. Although I can't afford a lawyer I research and prepare but I'm still denied. Desperately seeking help
Q: My daughter's father had asked the court for child support when he had custody of them in 2009. When I had received custody in 2010, I thought that the order was terminated but it was only suspended and then reactivated later that year without my knowledge. I just found out in December of last year, that due to a child support unit glitch the arrears had built up over the last 7 years without my knowledge and are totaling $50,000. My daughter's father has had the the girls since 2014 because I lost my home and had to move into a shelter with my son. I have gone to court to try to modify or vacate the arrears, but because I cannot locate him the court will not help me. I cannot pay that amount of arrears I seriously need help and I don't know how to find him. I don't have the funds to hire a detective or put out a publication in the newspaper. I have gone to his family to try to locate him they don't know where he lives he changed his phone number and has cut off all contact with anyone that might have known. At this point I don't know what to do and the magistrate will not vacate or modify the arrears unless he comes to court and states that he is in agreement.

Q: Back in 2006 my "ex" wife filed for divorce (which was mutually agreed on) we had gone back and forth with the paperwork and the last thing submitted to the courts was in 2007. 2 years ago, I went to the county clerks office to obtain a new file number but was told that was not necessary, since one was already obtained years earlier. She instructed me on the last bit on paperwork that needed to be submitted and then we just wait for the judge to sign off on it. My ex (defendant) will not sign the paperwork. We have been apart since 2006 and are both in serious relationships. Is there anything I can do besides hiring a lawyer and going the "contested" route? I was told that if I submit the paperwork without her signature and prove that she was served that I could get a divorce by default. Any advice anyone can give me is greatly appreciated!
