Question:

My divorce decree states payment to be made until age of majority. What is the age of majority in Missouri?

Answer:

I do not practice law in Missouri. The age of majority for child support purposes varies from state to state. In some states it is 18. In others it extends to 19 if the child is still in high school. Still in other states the age of majority is 21. Contact an attorney in your state to determine the date of majority in your state.

Question:

I have been remarried for a year and my ex-wife is getting married next week. I was required to increase my child suuport in April because my ex-wife was fired from her job. A week later she bought a 3 bedroom house. The man she is marrying has 2 sons who now share a room with my son. Before we were married my children each had their own bedroom in a 2000 square foot house. Now my son must share his room with 2 boys who are 6 years younger than him. I have a 4 bedroom house where my children each have their own room. Can a file for a reduction in child support since my children are not living in the manner they were accustomed to or can I file for primary residence.? We currently have joint custody and she has primary residence. I want to support my children but I don't feel my7 child support should have to pay for the other 2 boys.

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of New York. It will be difficult to modify child support now so quickly after one modification was entered. you have to show the change that has occurred to change child support, and that would not be including their actual living environment.

Question:

My (ex) wife just filed for divorce that is non contested. She got a lawyer, but I did not. Her expenses are listed in the papers for calculation of child support. I have no problem paying child support, but the amount is too high. My expenses were NOT calculated in order to come up with this specific dollar amount. How do I go about getting my expenses calcualted in order to adjust the dollar amount? Do I need a lawyer? Or can I go about this w/o a lawyer? Please help.

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Kansas. Some jurisdictions consider your income and her income in determining child support, while others only consider your income. You can file paperwork with the court regarding your income and expenses. it is always advisable to get counsel if you are not happy with what has been offered to you.

Question:

My brother just got served child support papers.  He recently was able to see his child for the first time since she was born, and since then the mother took off to another state with his child. His daughter is now one year old. He never signed the birth certificate and there wasn't any DNA testing done.

Would he have to pay back child support even thought she took off with her?

Question:

Hi, I just wanted to ask a few questions.

I am currently active in the military and have been divorced for four years with one child. My divorce was finalized in the state of Hawaii. Since that time, I have remarried and we are now expecting another child.

When I signed the divorce papers, I was being stupid and clearly was not in a sound state of mind.  I have paid dearly for the past three years because of it. When the divorce was settled, she moved to Louisiana (I was still in Hawaii), and I paid her "transitional alimony" as well as child support. I saved whatever I could within those next three years to fund his travel expenses to see me.

The issue is that I then moved from Hawaii to Illinois and received a huge paycut.  This has made things extremely difficult financially, and even more so now that I have remarried and we are expecting. Can I modify my child support payments and some mentions (College IRA and Life Insurance) on my divorce decree? I really need to do something because we are already living from paycheck to paycheck as it is. Not to mention, this extreme financial situation will hinder my chances of funding more of my child's future travel expenses. Please help!
