Question:

My ex-wife and I have a child support order set up through the court, which included arrears for the time between our temporary and final divorce orders. I was out of work for a couple of months, but now that I am employed, Child Support Enforcement has added an additional $550 a month to my child support.

 

Does CSE super cede a court order? This was not requested by my ex-wife, and she states that she is fine with the current amount. I don't have a problem adding a reasonable amount to the current payments to make up for the time I was unemployed, but I think $550 more a month is excessive. Not to mention the fact that I can't afford it. Can I enforce the actual court order, or maybe even another avenue to reduce the amount? My case worker from CSE has been completely uncooperative.

Question:

I have been divorced almost 3 yrs. We share custody of our children. I have them 50% of the time, and she has them for the other 50%. When we got the divorce, she had a job and carried the insurance. She was also supposed to do half of the driving for the children; however she has now lost her license and her job so I pay the insurance and do all of the driving. I also pay for all of the medical bills. Can I get the $300 a month child support dropped since everything has changed after the divorce?

Even though I work full time, I am struggling to pay all the bills; the support, the insurance, gas for driving them around, and everything else the kids need.  I have to continue paying for all of these expenses since she does not pay them anymore. I have gotten behind on child support because of the added expenses, and I need your advice.

Question:

My ex and I want to share the kids equally, but we are unsure of how we would carry out this agreement. For example, whenever the kids want to stay with her, we both want them to be able to do so.  Likewise, whenever they want to stay with me, we want them to be able to do so. Flexibility is a very important issue for both of us.

Also, how does child support work when you have this sort of agreement? Is it required for a child to have a primary address, and are there financial or other repercussions for the parent who does not live at this address?

Question:

I've been divorced for over a year now and have been paying child support every month without fail. Now, the state of Mississippi is telling me that the federal law says I must pay my support through them because my ex-wife is receiving food stamps. I provided the state proof that I am current on my support payments only to receive a call from the Human Resources department at my office a month later.  HR is now telling me that they received an order of garnishment from the state of Mississippi. I called the state and again they told me it's a federal law that if I have a job, support must be taken from my paycheck. It's an embarrassment at work and I feel it is all because my wife refuses to work. How do you recommend I handle this?

Question:

My wife and I are thinking very seriously about getting a divorce. We've been married for almost three years and have a daughter of twenty-two months. We currently live in New York City, and she has been unemployed since May 2008. She keeps saying that she can't find a job.

Her family lives in Texas, but she doesn't want to go there because I won't be able to see my daughter. Our current rent is $2000 a month and I wanted to know what will happen if we separate. Do I have to pay for her rent and bills plus child support?  My salary is not that large, and there is no way I can afford all of these expenses.
