advice on divorceQuestion:

Since the time my child support payments were calculated, I have lost my small business, most of my income, and my ex-wife has gotten a job, which she didn't have at the time of the divorce.

I am now being threatened with jail time because I can no longer afford paying child support.

Can I get child support modified given my drop in income and the fact that my ex-wife is now working?

oklahoma city divorce lawyerQuestion:

My child support question is about state child support laws trumping what we agreed to in our divorce settlement.

Our divorce decree states I will pay child support until my daughter turns 18. She just turned 18 so I stopped paying child support, but the enforcement agency says I have to continue paying until she graduates high school.

My divorce decree says nothing about paying until graduation, but I was told that is the state law. I was unaware the child support enforcement agency could trump a legal document.

Do they really have the power to do this?

Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My child support question is about forcing my ex-wife to get a job.

I pay her above the state-ordered child support amount because I feel bad for her. But I am fed up that she refuses to look for work while I continue to pay her extra money even as my own income has decreased.

Can I get the courts to force my ex-wife to get a job?

Houston Divorce LawyerQuestion:

I am paying child support in addition to insurance reimbursement.

The child support amount is not the problem; it's the monthly insurance reimbursement, which accounts for roughly 20% of my monthly income!

Is there a limit to the amount of insurance reimbursement I am ordered to pay in addition to child support?

prosecuting child supportBy Nathan A. Hacker

Indianapolis Divorce Lawyer

Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, I was a prosecuting attorney responsible for the prosecution of those who did not pay their child support.

Failing to pay child support is an easy conviction for any prosecutor, even if a jury is required as it is in some states.

Admittedly not a lot of lawyering skill is required to convince a jury of at least half women (most times it was two-thirds women) that a dad who didn't pay his child support should be found guilty.

As a divorce lawyer for men, I repeatedly stress to my clients the importance of paying child support because I have that child support enforcement experience.

I know how a child support agency and prosecutors view an enforcement case, what their options are, how they are going to proceed, and how they are going to make their decision on whether to bring contempt or criminal charges.
