What would you like to do?
Can you go back to court to modify child support agreement?
In California, I was allowed a modification every 3 years. It is just a matter of contacting the District Attorney's office or who ever has your case and requesting it. This goes for both parties.

\n. \n Answer \n. \nYes, she can. She must make the decision before it is finalized. If the courts decide in her favor, the father can pay it up front or continue payin…g after the child turns 18 until it is paid off. Whether or not it is added in small parts on top of child support is another issue. It may depend on the case, state, parents, etc.\n. \n . \n Maybe. A few states do not have SOL's for collecting child support arrearages, the majority however do.\n. \nIn some states only a specific amount can be recovered, for example if the support order began when the child was 6, in a state that allows only 3 years recovery the back support could only be recovered from the time the child was 3-years-old.
When there has been a significant change in the obligor's income (usually, 20-25%), or if there has been an extraordinary change in your circumstances.
Answer . petition to modify means you are asking the court to change a previous order, this way you can increase or lower child support, increase or lower visitation and c…ontact, change the hours of visitation, move from state to state, or change anything previousy ordered by the court. If you need something that the court never ordered, something new, you file an original petition: to establish child support, to establish parental rights, to establish visitation and contact, to in essence, give you something you didnt have before.
As often as is warranted as long as it does not constitute harassment which is defined by the laws of the state where the order of support was granted.. The general rule is n…ot more then twice within 18 months unless there are unusual circumstances, for instance if the obligated parent won the lottery or came into a large amount of money via an inheiritance.
Yes. A court order should be entered to protect your rights and provide you with the court's protection if the parent stops paying.
Can an ex-wife get back child support for a child that lived with you but you never modified the original court order?
Doesn't sound right. If your child lived with you instead of his/her mother I wouldn't think so. I actually would think you should get it. I would contact an attorney and have… it looked into.
WE must first remember that the couple when filing for divorce and child support agreement , must have children . The state of Michigan court will then decide.
No. Most judges will only collect the child support due at the time that you filed for Child Support so if you filed a case with child support on June 2008 and then got it fin…alized July of 2009 you would only get from the date that child support was filed, no more and no less. That is the only back child support you will be getting. You can always go back to court and get the child support started and all, but you cannot ask for back child support if you refused it and you did not fill out a Child Support filed case, with your state either. Again get an attorney and/or call your child Support Enforcement Agency and make sure of the laws in your state, but this is in most states. Utah, California and Maine are all this way.

Depending on the state, retroactive orders are 2-18 years, but Judge David Grey Ross, Commissioner of the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement opposes the program, and …a growing number of family court judges are following suit. The existence of the law does allow female pedophiles, who were not caught at the time of the they were sexually abusing boys, to wait for the statute of limitations on being charged with a crime to run out, than file a retroactive claim against the now working adult. In the summer of 2009, a 19-year-old Texas boy was hit with 11 years ($20,000) of retroactive child support. In 1998, a 27-year Michigan man was ordered to pay 14 years ($85,000) of retroactive support. He most interest case I've seen was a woman awarded $120,000 in retroactive support, which she used to buy a home, and other things for her, her current husband, and their combined children. A year later, it was all lost when her husband was hit with an even larger order, costing them all their jointly held assets. Assets she had gained by taking it all away from the father of her oldest child and his family. Now that was Karma.
That depends on the cause and the judge
Absolutely - and you need to do so right away, because the meter keeps ticking until you do.
Can i get a court appointed attorney in Texas to help me go back to court and get my child support modified?
In theory, the State's Attorney/District Attorney is supposed to help you with this, but many SA/DA offices are reluctant to do so because they also represent child support ob…ligees.
Child support in Tennessee can be reviewed and modified up to the age of majority.
Can father go back after closing the case for child support after 4 years and reopen it and the mother pay all back child support when we came to agreements?
Yes, he can. If the father was the sole supporter of the child(ren) for 4 years without any contribution from the mother, the mother is responsible for her share of this time.… Furthermore, any agreement and, in most states needs to be approved by a judge. In some cases the judge may decide that the amount of the agreement may not be enough to support the child(ren) solely based on the father's income.
Some other event needs to have happened besides the period of time. Many states award child support based on a percentage of income. You may need to adjust your budget and/or …upgrade your job. Child support helps, but it is never enough to cover everything.
Yes, any changes in the child support order has to be done in court. It does not end automatically.
