Question:divorce lawyer Carrie Westbrook

What are the child support laws when it comes to being properly served? I have learned that my ex is trying to say I owe her child support and that she is taking me back to court for it.

However, I have not been served any paperwork. Her divorce lawyer thinks if he just mails me the motion then that is considered me being served, but shouldn't it come from the court?

What constitutes being properly served?

Question:divorce lawyer Carrie Westbrook

I am looking for financial advice on divorce regarding tax liabilities.

We divorced in late 2010, but filed taxes jointly for the final time that year. I had withdrawn money from my 401k to cover the legal costs of our divorce. In our divorce decree, she waived any right to my 401k money.

But because I withdrew money from my 401k, my ex-wife is claiming that increased our taxes and liabilities and she is now looking to get money from me for the tax consequences.

Can she come after me for more money after she willingly signed off on the tax return?

Question:divorce lawyer Carrie Westbrook

My children primarily live with my ex-wife and I pay her child support per our child custody agreements.

Her boyfriend has now moved in and they are a cohabitating couple with dual incomes.

Do child support laws allow for a modification of child support if her boyfriend is now living with her?

Question:divorce lawyer Carrie Westbrook

In our divorce and child custody agreement, I agreed to pay my wife alimony in the amount of 50% of my earnings for life.

Since the judgment was entered, I have lost my job so I want to modify the amount of alimony to reflect changes in my life situation, my income and my future inability to make these large payments

Even with only one child alimony payments were calculated for a very high monthly payment.

What are the chances of getting the stipulations of my divorce decree modified?

All fathers going through divorce have divorce questions to ask about child custody and how to increase their parenting time through child custody agreements.

Judges frequently rely on child custody professionals (such as a custody evaluator or guardian ad litem) to help them determine the best interests of the children.

There are several different types of family law professionals you can request be appointed for your child custody case.
