No she can not drop child support. But she can go and get a prosage package. That reduces the amount of money he has to pay for child support. If you don't want him to pay child support at all then why don't he pay it and you give it back to him yourself the next time you guys see each other.
She can visit her local domestic relations office. There is a form (i can't recall the name of it) that the plaintiff completes to state she no longer wishes to receive child support from the defendent. Or depending on the situation you can request that the noncustodial parent relinquish his rights to the child.
An attorney told me that after my wife and I divorced she could write me receipts stating that I had paid her. That way the non-custodial parent is in the clear from back support if anyone should change their mind.
Yes, in Michigan a mother or father can stop child support payments that is owed to them, but not what is owed to the state. They simply would have to go to the FOC office and fill out a form or just write out on paper. The father should be aware that the referre or judge will try to convince the mother not to do so.
Yes..by all means yes they can. If the custodial parent no longer wants child support from non-custodial parent the custodial parent must petition the court to end the order. The order must be signed by a judge. However ended the support will zero out any late payments also.
No, the minor child must live with the custodial parent who decides where they will live.
It doesn't matter what the child wants. If they still live with the custodial parent, child support must still be paid. If the child changes residences via court ordered custody modification, a motion to modify support based on that should be made at the same time.
Child support and visitation are two separate issues. The custodial parent can file a suit for child support but cannot deny the non custodial parent custodial or vistation rights is said parent wants those rights. That being said, the non custodial parent can file for custody or visitation regardless of whether the child support issue is addressed or not. Such matters are decided by the court if the parents cannot find an equitable solution.
They can't simply "give the child to you." You need to return to the court and have the custody order modified so you'll have legal custody. It will go easier if the current custodial parent consents to the modification. At that time the current support order should be terminated and you can request child support if you wish.
Typically child support ceases when the child reaches the age of majority unless the court decides to continue support while the child is in school, whether it be high school or college. You can certainly go to court and request an order of support, but unless you were previously ordered to pay support to the custodial parent beyond age eighteen while the child was in their care it is unlikely an order will be imposed.
Once paternity is established, the non-custodial parent has the right to request visitation, just as the custodial parent has the right to request support.
It doesn't matter what the child wants. It only matters what the court decides is in the best interests of the child. If it is found that awarding sole legal and physical custody of a child to one parent is in his or her best interests, child support may be increased accordingly.
The minor female could not arbitrarily change residences without the permission of the custodial parent or the court. In addition, the custodial parent would not be required to pay support unless the non custodial parent filed for primary custody and support payments and the court granted the petition. The parent paying child support is legally obligated to continue with the terms of the court order until said order is rescinded or amended. To cease the action, regardless of the change of circumstances would place the parent in a position of contempt of a court order.
Absolutely not. Shelter, food and clothing basics are it. If the child wants phone service, he/she should go to work and earn the money. Or, if the non-custodial parent differs, and the custodial parent agrees, he can pay for it.
Then the child should petition the court (or have the non-custodial parent petition the court, more likely) to modify the custody order. If the custodial parent is "gone for most of the year" and leaving the child in the care of someone else, the court will probably consider that a significant factor.
If the non-custodial parent makes an issue of it and files a motion for support, then most likely yes.
The child already lives with the custodial parent.In the child wants to live with the non custodial parent that parent must petition for a modification of the custody order. The "best interests of the child" is considered by the judge. The court will hear what the child has to say, if the child is old enough to reason, but will not necessarily do what the child asks.At age eighteen the child can make their own decision.
most likely yes....non custodial parent usually pays child support until the child is out of college. That means if the child wants to get their masters and go to college for 8 years non custodial parent pays child support the whole time.
No. Losing your job is not in and of itself grounds for losing custody of your child. The parent who wants to gain custody would need to file a motion for custody and convince the court that the custodial parent is unfit and that it would be in the best interest of the child to award custody to the other parent.
Assuming the non-custodial parent wants this too, the non-custodial parent can petition the court to change the custody order. The minor's wishes should be taken into account by the court (this does not mean the court will do whatever the minor wants; if the court still feels the minor will be better off with the custodial parent, then they may decide not to modify the order at all, or they may only modify it to increase visitation).
This depends on what is in your custody agreement. Usually, the custodial parent may do anything he/she pleases and simply transfer and payments the non-custodial parent is making to their current residence if moving out of state. However, if it is decreed in the court records that you should not take the minor out of state, this would not be that case. One advantage to soul custody w/ no stipulations is that you may move wherever you like and tak the child with you; if the non-custodial parent wants to make arrangements to see the child or attempt custody of the child they must do so in the place of the child's residence, wherever that may be.
File a motion in the court that entered the custody/support order. You can find the forms for this at the Florida Courts website see links.
File suit to have the support order rescinded. However, child support and parental rights are two entirely different issues and a parent cannot be forced to relinquish his or her rights to their biological child. Voluntarily requesting child support termination does not affect the non custodial parent's custodial or visitation rights. The court will only terminate parental rights in cases of documented neglect and/or abuse, and sometimes not even then. In some instances rather than terminating rights supervised visitation will be ordered.
Until a change of custody order, the custodial parent has the decision power in the matter, however it can be considered child abandonment.
A non-custodial parent is entitled to visitation rights even if they are not a citizen of the U.S. yet. The only thing that would stop a non-custodial parent from having visitation rights is if they have committed a crime or have been convicted of child abuse.
No. Paying child support is not a reason in and of itself for the court to change the custody order. The parent who wants custody must petition the court for custody and have a very good reason to compel the court to make such a substantial change. They would need to provide evidence that here has been a change in circumstances since the last custody order was issued by the court and a change in custody is in the best interest of the child. They would need to provide proof that the present custodial parent is unfit.
Yes,the dead beat is expected to pay up.
No they do not go to jail. Remember that child support also helps pay for housing, utilities, gas to go places as well as for items for the child. Like any budget, toys and new clothes are wants not needs. As a non-custodial parent, you should not consider that child support is enough; it doesn't hurt to occasionally take the child out for a set of clothes, a jacket or new shoes.
An ex can do what she wants in her private life as long as she's the only one affected. Her behavior also affects the child. The non-custodial parent should consult with an attorney. That is not in the best interest of the child and may give the non-custodial parent a boost in asking for a change in custody. That kind of behavior on the part of the mother may place the child at risk.An ex can do what she wants in her private life as long as she's the only one affected.
