What would you like to do?
If your wife gets sole custody of your children can she still take you back to court for reasons other than an increase in child support?
I believe that the wife can take you back to court for changes in visitation scheduling. She can take you back to court for obtaining clarity on the visitation which you have been granted.

Child support, is based on the needs of the child and the economicsituation of the parents. Child support is primarily determined by what it takes to providethe child with a r…easonable standard of living, based on what thetwo divorced parents have available. Sole custody indicates thatthe child will be living solely (with limited visitation) with ajust one of the parents. Thus, that parent will be responsible forproviding the vast majority of the food, clothes, etc. that thechild will be using. The non-custodial parent now no longer will beproviding those (if they had shared custody). So it is likely thatthe court will also modify the child support requirement - eitherreducing the amount the custodial parent had been paying the nownon-custodial parent, or increasing the amount that the nownon-custodial parent had been paying the now custodial parent.
Yes. In the US the law presumes that an unmarried mother retainssole custody to the child until a court rules otherwise. Childsupport and custodial issues are two entirely dif…ferent matters.The granting of sole custody to one parent does not relieve the noncustodial parent of their financial obligations even if the couplewere/are not married.
Usually yes, but the amount will be based on factors such as yourincome, the other parent's income, etc. Try citizens advice bureau(if you're based in the UK) or equivalent fo…r specific advice. Inthe US custody and child support are different issues, one has nobearing on the other. If there is a child support order in placethe terms should be adhered to until/unless the support order isrescinded or amended. The paying parent should never arbitrarilycease paying the required amount on the specified date. Such actioncan result in contempt of a court order, nonsupport of minorchildren charges and so forth which may result in the non compliantparent being jailed.
For unwed parents how easy is it for the mother to get sole custody of her child when the father owes about 30000 grand in back child support for 2 other children from 2 previous marriages?
By virtue of being "unwed" the mother will have sole custody. Father will have file some type of paternity action.
If there is no child support order and the non-custodial parent takes custody of the children for two monthes does he still have to pay child support?
it depends my dad had to go to court to get rid of child support so if you take it off no he does not if he doesn't then he does have to pay for child support
The mother of my children gets child support and my children don't live with her Is this illegal and can i take her to court for back pay?
You need to go to court to modify your child support agreement. Yes, as long as your old agreement hasn't been modified, she can legally collect child support from you. There …may be provisions in your support agreement by which your children do not have to reside with her, especially if the money is still going toward their support. The court probably won't make your ex-wife pay back the money, but it will give you credit for having paid it.
If you have married a man with children-can his ex-spouse take him back to court for a child support increase due his new wifes income?
A new wife's income cannot be attached for any child support arrears owed by the father, but her credit and any shared assets may be affected. In states like California, he…r income has to be included in calculation for any child support adjustment, but it's limited to 20% and generally only applies when he's been laid off and is seeking a reduction.
Can my dead spouses mother who does not have guardianship or custody of my children take me back to court for an increase?
No. Nor does she have the right to accept any court ordered child support payments. She must petition the court to be appointed the child's legal guardian. If the deceased mot…her had full legal custody a guardian must be appointed or you must obtain legal custody through the court.
Does court in Ga take into account total no of children a man has when former wife is trying to get order to increase child support?
Yes. Section Â§19-6-15 of the Georgia Code.
If the court order states that the mother has permanent sole care custody and control custody of the child and the child lives with his grandmother does the father still have to pay child support?
Yes, but he could file for custody. Not tomorrow, nor next week. Take a month and prepare. see links below.
You can still apply for sole custody, but you would not be awarded custody unless you are able to demonstrate, at the least, that you are financially capable of supporting tha…t child. You should also be able to demonstrate that you will take better care of the child than the other parent. If not, there would not seem to be any basis to award you sole custody. But if the other parent is incompetent in some way, then a legal basis would exist. If both parents turn out to be incompetent then the child can become a ward of the state.
Yes, it will be calculated by percentage between both parents.
Yes, as it is a separate issue. see links below
No. Courts routinely award child support in cases where the parents have joint custody.
Yes. Child support is calculated based upon the income of both parents plus the amount of time each parent spends with the child.
The second parent may want sole custody, but it is up to the court to grant it. The father has to pay whatever amount the court has ordered regardless of how much time if any …he spends with the child.
