You should consult an attorney. My experience would indicate that until the child reaches the age of majority, the child can do nothing more than complicate your title. Answer Where are you from? Just because i am unsure how titles on a home could ever change having to pay capital gains tax.... In Australia each person has a "main residence" home which no capital gains tax would be paid if it was sold for a profit. If they owned more than one house then the others would be subject to capital gains.

Primary residences are basically exempt from tax on gain at sale...agreeably with considerations like replacement within 2 years and age of seller and having taken a 1 time break before.

And even without that, why you thing having 2, or 20 names on the title would change the amount of tax due 9it wouldn't, just how many people are responsible for it), I don't follow.

Do you pay capital gains tax if you roll the profit into a new home?

The law changed in 1997. Before that, you had to buy a new home to avoid capital gains tax. The law no longer cares what you do with the money from the sale of the old home. If the house was your main home for two of the previous five years and you owned the home for two of the previous five years, the first $250,000 in capital gains is exempt from tax. The exemption increases to $500,000 if you file jointly and it was also the main home of your spouse for two of the previous five years.

No, and no can he, so there must be a greater issue related here as to the safety of the children. As for being in arrears, in this economy that comes as no shock as men do not know there is free legal help to avoid or reduce arrears from the government. That is what I teach them.

Can a non custodial parent avoid full time work?

I'm guessing that you are the custodial parent, and you are wondering what you can do to get the non-custodial parent to make enough money to help pay for the expenses of your child? The technical answer to your question is, "Yes, a non custodial parent CAN avoid working..." However, there may be consequences for the dead-beat parent that s/he won't like. If you can show that the non-custodial parent is intentionally neglecting his/her responsibilities, the court will be able to take certain measures against the dead-beat parent. You need to consult with a family-law attorney, and it is usually best if you use the same attorney who handled your original custodial agreement. If you cannot afford an attorney, there are free legal services in every state.
