Q: I am a non custodial parent who recently moved to Texas from NYC. I have a child support agreement (made in Bronx Supreme Court as part of divorce) with my ex for 860 (I pay her directly instead of paying the court). I wanted my divorce papers, so me and her agreed to this amount even though I was an unemployed full time student using the GI Bill and getting a monthly allowance under the program (mistake). After graduating, I worked in NY. Me and her agreed that I would pay her a lower support amount than the original agreement. (I was making less than my GI allowance and followed the 17% rule). I got a new job in Texas and just moved here 2 weeks ago. We a have been discussing the new amount based on my new income (still following 17%). She also wants me to pay half of child care costs (60/week. She says that she pays her boyfriends mom to watch my daughter while she works part time). Not even sure how to prove that as she could claim any price she wanted. We're trying to draft a notarized agreement between each other to compensate for the difference from the original agreement. I never hired a lawyer. I am just trying to make sure I don't get screwed now or in the future.
Q: Last month, I posted a question pertaining to a situation my mother was going through with her husband's child support issues. She had a joint account with over $4,000 in there, and the Bronx collection unit took $105,000 out of it. The thing is, her husband has never deposited money since the account's been open in 06. This was the same year they got married, and its purpose was to house the checks they received as wedding gifts. She's been using this as her primary account and forgot that it was a joint account. After the money was taken out Jan 29th, Her husband received a letter/package containing documents about his child support. It also contained the MISTAKE OF FACT AND/OR EXEMPT MONEY CLAIM FORM. She filled out section 2 of that form, along with her pay stubs and bank statements for the last 60 days. The letter/package was dated 1/24/18, and it forms said we she 15 days to dispute the money withdrawn out of her account. She overnight everything 2/6/18, but have not heard anything since then. She can't call the child support hotline and ask because they're only interested in her husband. What are the next steps we should take?
Q: Is there any way to stop the involuntary withholding of my wages? I would be more at ease paying my child support by check, money order or electronically as opposed to them automatically taking the money out of my wages themselves. It doesn't leave me with enough time to catch up on my other bills/expenses especially since right now I'm only receiving unemployment.
Q: 50-50 shared custody, equal joint legal and physical custody for both parents. Father earns more than the mother. Can offset be applied for child support payments where one calculates what mother would pay to father, and then what father would pay to mother for child support, and only difference between the two is actually paid by father? What needs to be done for getting this offset?
Q: My fiance was put on child support from his ex. He placed his current job down when he went to court and showed pay stubs. The case was adjourned and he received a temporary child support order. We just received the copy of the IWO form in the mail and it listed an old employer. Why would they list an old employer on the form. Where did they get this information from? Did they look at his social security security number? And if so why wouldn't they put the most recent employer down? Is this the employer his ex put down as the last known employment for him?
Q: If you are married and are on child support from an ex for one child and your ex has primary custody, if you decide to have more children with your new wife, can you get a modification to lower the child support payments since you will have more kids to support and these kids will be with you full time?
Q: My son's mother lost custody of my son and I don't have custody is it mandatory for me to keep paying child support. I'm confused.
Q: I'm not on child support yet.
The childs mother is trying to seeve me papers but at my mother's house and I don't lI've at the location I want to go to court so I can get them but I don't want them to take some of the money.
Q: My ex did not show up to our first child support/paternity establishment hearing. We were both mailed "Notices to Appear". He told a mutual friend he didn't care. The judge said she is ordering him to be served and if he doesn't show up at the next court date then "next steps will be taken". The problem is, the address they have is not his. It's his best friend's mom's address. I'm not sure if the court has his current employer or not. I have zero contact with my ex. He's been evading any responsibilities for child support. What will happen if they can't serve him? If they do serve him then what will happen next if he doesn't show up?
Q: Going back to court for my child's father lack of payment and help with our child?
