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.

In NY, the custodial parent can file a support modification petition whenever there is a change in circumstances. This could include a change in the daycare arrangements or jobs ie. salaries.
\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 paying 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 contact, 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 not more then twice within 18 months unless there are unusual circumstances, for instance if the obligated parent won the lott…ery or came into a large amount of money via an inheiritance.

I just got child support and the father wants to get a lawyer and take it away- do I have to go back to court if they request it?
Answer Answer The child support decision will stand. Most likely the father has no leg to stand on if you have the children. His threats are just noise and a good lawyer will tell him he is unlikely to win. If and when there is a court date, you will be notified. If he does not pay, keep on the c…ourt system to make sure he does. Meanwhile, see if you can find a better job for yourself so you are not quite so dependent on his payments. If he leaves threatening calls, be sure to keep recordings in a safe place away from the house. Many guys have a hard time with paying child support since they can't imagine "giving" you the money.

child support rearrange only goes back to the day of filing in Illinois . Answer . yes it can for they want to be more innderpendant and show you that they can be responsible
Yes. A court order should be entered to protect your rights and provide you with the court's protection if the parent stops paying.
How can you stop child support if there is no custody agreement and you have the child The mom will not go to domestics and stop it?
You will need to prepare and file a petition with the court to terminate the support. You will also need to send a notice (notice of motion) to the mother certified mail, return receipt requested,so that she has notice of a court date that you will set for a hearing on the matter.
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.
No, In order to supercede the court order you would need to have your agreement filed with the court.
Are there any provisions for a non-custodial parent to modify a child support agreement while children are visiting?
If you wish to modify your child support agreement in this manner, you should consult your attorney and also talk to your ex-spouse to see if the two of you can come to an agreement regarding the change. You'll also likely need to show that the visits in question are truly "extended" and not just a …few days here and there. (MORE)
Generally, child support is only "backdated" to the date the custodial parent files for support.
YES!!. They do have what is now called Child Support Jail && Court.. They can keep you locked up for a certain amount of time. Like paying for a ticket by going to jail for a couple days.. Or they also help you find a job so that you can start paying for child support. But they will automatically… deduct 10-25% out of every check before you even get it. (MORE)
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.
You seek the advice of a professional such as a mediator or attorney who specializes in family law issues since they have the legal background and expertise to consider all the factors that should be addressed.
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 finalized July of 2009 you would only get from the date that child support was filed, no more and no less. That is the only ba…ck 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. (MORE)
Would Under child support laws in NY can the custodial parent tell the noncustodial parent they do not want child support from them and then go to court and ask for back child support?
Probably not. This is in most states. I went through this as well. I started my divorce a year later and well lost a year of child support thinking i had to start the divorce before I started the child support. So no if you refused the child support in the first place there is no back owed,… they judge will take the date that you filed for child support to current and that is it. so if you filed June 2008 and you just got to court June 2009 and it was finalized, they will take if from the June 2008 date that you filed. Not the date you got divorced. This is with most states. Contact an attorney to make sure, but it is like this in Maine and Utah and California and other states, so probably in New York as well.

the non custodial parent should always cover his / her back any support you pay pay it in a money order or pay it by check. always have proof or better yet a paper trail of what you are paying. in court custodial and non custodial parents play the word game, his work against her's. you need to proov…e that you are paying. if you cant proove you are doing your self more harm than good. if you buy clothes for your child. keep your reciepts so if you as the non custodial parent need to proove that you are not a dead beat you can proove it. Cash money has no real value once it leaves your hand. some custodial parents have been creative in making a $500 cash payment of child support verbally turn into $10. You always need a receipt / Proof !!!!! get a money order or a cashiers check, or a notarized letter to go with any payment you make. Custodial parents have also tried to claim they do not want to go through the motions of having anything documented. You both have to remember it is in what is in the best interest of your child. You would be suprised to hear of how many parents treat there beloved children as pawns and trophies, and as ways to make the other parent misirable. Unfortunately it does not start out that way but in many cases it ends up that way. GET YOUR RECEIPTS and proove you are supporting your child and most importantly Reserach the laws for the state you live and if you and your child live in two different states... check the laws for both states. If you both agree not to have support sanctioned y the court get your money orders ready or open a savings account for the child adn deposit the money in there by Money order witht the custodial parent having access to the child's account. that is a perfect paper trail.

I was on court order child support but my child mother took you off because she was going to be homeless can she put me back on and will i have to pay back support i live in Ga?
I don't really understand the question, but here goes. If you have a court order saying pay XXX amount per month then you owe that much whether she took you off collections, or is homeless. You are still responsible for all that time. see link
Can a parent go back and collect child support for a previous year if the current signed Parenting Agreement filed in Arizona each parent waived child support in lieu of equal time with child?
You can not get child support for the previous year if there is a filed court document stating that you agreed not to get any. The best you can do is file for a change so that child support might be able to start, but it would not be retroactive.
Yes. If there is a court order and there are arrearages under that order. That is the purpose of establishing a child support order, to make it enforceable.
2-18 years, depending on the state, but a growning number of judges are taking the stance of Judge David Grey Ross, Commissioner of the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement in opposing the practice.
All the way back to when the child was born. You still will owe back child support after the child turns 18.
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 wer…e 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. (MORE)
Your agreement should be incorporated and transformed into a child support order. You should consult with your attorney to determine how the process works in your jurisdiction.
Absolutely - and you need to do so right away, because the meter keeps ticking until you do.
not technically... a parenting & child agreement is just a guideline, but remember if you verbally agree on something & the other parents changes their mind you cant hold them to it. Also once you do something outside of your parenting plan you, in a way, void it. Then if the other parent decides to… do something against the parenting plan, that isn't okay with you, the courts may not back you up. I suggest always having everything in writing. (MORE)
Your wife signed a written agreement to never take you to court for child support will that hold up in court?
only if the court determines that it would be in the best interest of the child[ren] to do so
If you have a warrant for child support and you bond out and go to court for a paternity test and find out its not yours do you get the bond money back?
No, in those states that do allow you to petition for a paternity test, after an order is in place, your child support must be current first. Twenty states do not allow the challenge, period. see links
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 obligees.
I suppose the parents could agree on child support without going to court; however, I would counsel against it. From the obligee's perspective, such an agreement is probably not enforceable, and as for the obligor, such an agreement would not preclude the obligee from going to court later.
Child support in Tennessee can be reviewed and modified up to the age of majority.
You should expect to be required to support your child financially. Most states have very strict guidelines that even the judge is required to adhere to. Every case is different, but you should be prepared to show proof of (or lack of) income, at a minimum. The judge will evaluate the income of both… parties, along with the custody agreement, and make a determination of how much child support is owed each month. (MORE)
If there is a child support order in place, and your child is now an adult and has completed their education, then yes. You can have the order modified to stop child support as the child no longer meets the requirements of child support
This is dependent on specific state laws on retroactive child support orders. Wisconsin does not allow them, while Ohio allows for filings up to age 23 of the child, for 18 years retroactive. The standard for most states is age 18 for five years retroactive. All such orders are dependent on the appr…oval by the courts. The child can file for up to one year past the age of majority in most state, three years in New York, or five years in Michigan and Ohio. See related link below. Of note on this, any child support paid without a court order can be classified as a gift. In a California case, two children were allowed to sue their father $134 million dollars in retroactive child support. The parents were never married. However, since 1988 the father paid the mother $18,000.00 a month in child support, without a court order, so the court called it a gift. (MORE)

After going through all you did to get the back child support ordered by the court, it is best to let it go through. There's plenty of things you had to do without the money and you can fund an emergency fund, a college fund or your retirement.

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. (MORE)
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.
It is unlikely the court would recognize such action as a valid reason for reducing the support amount. Furthering one's education, though admirable is not mandatory it is a personal choice.
Yes, any changes in the child support order has to be done in court. It does not end automatically.
Yes or be prepared to go to jail. There are scant few circumstances where your absence would be excused and even then, you should have an attorney appear for you.
It depends upon the circumstances, the main one being if the interested party is eligible for a passport. If the person owes more then $2,500 he or she will not be granted passport privileges. There are other factors as well, such as any outstanding warrants for not complying to court ordered suppor…t. (MORE)
The custodial parent, it is assumed that he or she supported the child with their income. If however a state agency was involved in the support of the child that agency would receive the arrearages.
