Legal Answers
102 Questions Answered
Q. i recently got intouch with my birth father and he says he paid child support to the state but my mother and i got none
A: Your mother would need to contact Child Support Enforcement in the County in which it was paid to obtain a payment history.
Q. Wisconsin. Wife is dyslexic and missed child support hearing yesterday. Court gave ex a free pass. What can she do?
A: If she missed a hearing, she is found to be in default, thus allowing the husband to obtain the relief he seeks or dismissing her motion. If the Commissioner entered the Order, a Motion for De Novo Review can be filed as long as it is filed within the time limits in this county pursuant to Local Rules. If a Judge entered the Order, a Motion for Reconsideration would need to be filed within 30 days of the Order or hearing.
Q. I want to know how I can keep my financial information from the attorney for my girlfriends X husbands lawyer.
A: If you have continuously resided together for three years, her ex probably is going to argue that your girlfriend is living in a marital like relationship in which you are not wed simply to avoid a termination of maintenance. There is case law providing that marriage can be terminated if the relationship is similar to a marriage. It can also be modified if her earnings are being diminished because she is relying upon the income of a significant other. You are going to have trouble keeping your income undisclosed in such a situation.
