Can a man file a civil lawsuit against a woman who sends him to court to establish paternity?
I am paying child support regularly. I am also responsible for 33 percent of child care and medical expenses in addition to the regular support. However, I am unable to cover this financially and have not been paying the extra expenses.
My ex just filed a modification for full legal custody. As I understand it, these extra expenses are not enforced by the court. Can she keep a tab and come after me for full custody at this point in time for the expenses? Is there a way I can reduce the amount of the extra expenses or control what is being spent on her end?
I reported domestic violence against my daughter’s mother recently and filed for child custody.
Now, she has fled the state and is living in another state. How do I get her served or even find her?
My husband and I are in a fairly amicable divorce. I had an affair, which is known by all parties, and conceived of a child with that person. The baby is scheduled to be born after the final divorce court hearing.
My husband does not wish to be the father in my child’s life, and the biological father does wish to be involved. What must I do to get this legally straight? How are paternity laws handled in this situation?
I arrived home from work to see the police at our home. My wife was getting her things together and getting herself ready to leave.
Now, she has left and taken the kids with her. What happens next? What should I do first?
