What are the legal ways to avoid paying child support?
There are a variety of reasons why one may need to pay child support. If you have to pay child support in Prince Georges County, the age where you can stop payments is 18.…
At the request of the custodial parent or to recover assistance provided, the State may take various actions to collect past-due support, including garnishing wages, intercept…ing tax refunds and other government payments, placing liens on bank accounts, real estate and other assets, requesting suspension of drivers license, and/or asking the courts to put the obligor in jail for contempt.
Yes, if the child, who is now a parent, a minor you do owe childsupport. The fact that they are a parent doesn't allow you not topay for your child's support. Also: if the ch…ild is over 18 but is a full-time student, you stillhave to pay child support for her - you don't pay child support forher baby, though. That would be the responsibility of the baby'sfather. Answer also: My coworker was faced with this situation when herdaughter who lived with her became pregnant while still in HighSchool. Her mom put her out, she went to live with her grandmotherand filed for welfare. The Welfare Dept called my coworker and toldher they could garnish her paycheck because her daughter was stillunderage. The daughter said she could not do that to her mom, sothe mom let her move back home. It's a slippery slope, but the lawsays you cannot just stop paying because the child has a child.Where is the baby daddy in all of this and what is he paying?
If you are married to the mother, no. Then you share everything naturally. But if you have a child and you are separated or not married to the mother, and you do not have cust…ody of the children, you have to pay child support
If there is a court order then yes. If there is not a court order, then until you get one, no. Becarefull that you don't have to pay back support from the time of the sepera…tion.
This is from the IRS website: If you suspect or know of an individual or company that is not complying with the tax laws, you may report this activity by completing Form 394…9-A. You may fill out Form 3949-A online, print it and mail it to: Internal Revenue Service Fresno, CA 93888 If you do not wish to use Form 3949-A, you may send a letter to the address above. Please include the following information, if available: Name and address of the person you are reportingThe taxpayer identification number (social security number for an individual or employer identification number for a business)A brief description of the alleged violation, including how you became aware of or obtained the informationThe years involvedThe estimated dollar amount of any unreported incomeYour name, address and daytime telephone number Although you are not required to identify yourself, it is helpful to do so. Your identity can be kept confidential. You can turn this person in but leagally you will still be responsible for back support.
It depends on a number of different factors. How often do you have the children vs the other parent? What is your income vs the other parent? etc. Child support is supposed to… reflect the type of lifestyle your child may have had if the parents had stayed together. It is also to keep it fair to the parents. If one makes $50 a week and is told to pay $5 in support, but the other makes $1000 a week, asking only $5 from parent #2 wouldn't be fair. It is based on percentage. So even if you have 50% custody and visitation, if you make more money, then the bulk of support for the child will most likely come from you. Actully its not fair, but we have to pay it because people who dont work hard think it is fair. I work 60 hrs a week and my x wife who left me for another man only works 30 hrs a week. Even tho we make the same money an hr, since I work harder I have to pay the cheating coniving woman.
Yes, however it should still be done through the courts as anything paid without it is considered a gift. Depending on the state, the mother can wait up to 23 yeas to file aga…inst you for up to 18 years in retroactive child support. see links below
No, that won't work. Even if you give up your parental rights you still have to pay child support. If the child is left for adoption or in foster home you also still pay, unti…l the child is adopted. There is no reason why the state would want to pay for your child just because you decide you don't want to pay.
What rights does a father have in Pennsylvania to a child of legal age that he pays child support for and the child is in the 11th grade of high school?
Answer It depends on what you are after. What rights are you looking for? Answer Probably few if any, the legal age of majority in Pennsy…lvania is 21, therefore court ordered child support will remain in effect until that time, or until the minor is emancipated either by marrying, enlisting in the military. In some cases the court will consider amending a support order before the age of majority is reached, if the child is not in a program of continuing education and/or is employed and living independently from the custodial parent.
Can a married man who fathered a child outside of his marriage give up his parental rights to avoid paying child support?
A termination of parental rights petition can be filed in the appropriate state court where the child lives. Whether the petition will be granted depends upon the presiding j…udge. The decision is based upon the best interest of the child and not the preference of any involved party. Therefore a petition can be granted in full relieving the parent of all obligations including financial ones, be granted with specified terms, or be denied. A full TPR petition is seldom granted for any reason other than for the child to become eligible for adoption. A TPR request is not intended to be used as a legal way to avoid personal responsibility.
If you are legally married to an absentee spouse but have a child by another man and paternity has been established is the father of the child obligated to pay child support?
Parents of minor children are legally required to support said child/children regardless of the circumstances surrounding the matter.. The biological father of the child in q…uestion must be financially responsible for his child according to the laws and ruling of the court of the state in which the child is a resident.
To report someone working under the table to avoid paying child support is to tell your attorney if you are the person that the child support is supposed to be paid to. Yo…u may even need to file a motion for contempt of court.
With some exceptions, child support is not paid directly to the child because it is not "the child's money" - it is compensation to the custodial parent because they are rais…ing the child alone. Child support must be paid to the custodial parent or legal guardian. However, if the child is no longer living with the custodial parent (in the case of an emancipated minor or a child 18 or older who is a full-time student), the court can be petitioned to have the money directly paid to the child.
Sure, get a good lawyer to prove this point. If he only wants custody of your child when he's served with child support papers, this would be a red flag for a judge. Tell the …court how long it's been since he's had anything to do with the child. A judge can see right through the smoke screen. No, as no attorney would tell a father this. Who would be supporting the child if he got custody? Only 15% of mothers are order to pay, of which 5% ever pay. That 1 out of 1000 custodial fathers getting child support. Further, even with sole custody, he can still be ordered to pay. At the current stage in fathers rights, this idea is an Urban Myth, though it may change now that more women are working than men and stay at home dads will have a greater chance of getting custody and child support as a growing number will have to go on Welfare.
The fathers financial responsibility to his children does not end because the courts have decided that custody should go exclusively to the mother or others.
Garnishment is the standard means of paying support. However, the courts will often honor an agreement between the parents to pay support by some other means. In any case, the… NCP should make payments to the court or the State disbursement unit, NOT TO THE CUSTODIAL PARENT.
