Legal Answers
134 Questions Answered

Q. I have caught my husband cheating and he has an alcohol abuse problem. I can't afford divorce and am scared. Help
A: Hello, you asked your question in the Alabama forum, but it appears you are in Miami, FL. Regardless, where ever you are located, seek out a legal services office, or other pro bono/income based program in your area. Thanks for the question and good luck!
Q. my daughter is 22 and my son is 18 both no longer live at home and my daughter is about to get married when does child ?
A: Hello, child support stops at age 19 in Alabama, unless you agreed to extend it, or a child is disabled and in need of continued support. Mom does not have an obligation to update her income. If she's working and you believe it is more than a 10% change from when CS was last calculated, it is up to you to file a modification. Thanks for the question and best of luck.
Q. I have child support court today and every time I crank my car it stalls right out I have no other way there
A: Hello. You can call the clerk's office, let them know what's going on, and ask for a continuance.
Q. My 10 y/o daughter wants nothing to do with me. What are options on avoiding child support on her
A: Hello. No, the rules do not contemplate stopping child support for this reason. Unless there is a safety issue, your 10 year old child does not get to decide who she does or does not want to be with or visit. There are several ways to handle this issue legally, but if you've not talked to mom about this problem yet, try that first. Otherwise, ask the Court's help to enforce it's orders over Mom via contempt for not following the visitation schedule. Thanks for your question and best of luck!
Q. If my ex husband is supposed to pay child support through the court system but doesn't and pays me cash .is it a gift?
A: Hello. No, it is not a gift. It is child support that should be going for the costs associated with raising your child(ren).
Q. My son live in alabama with his mother. I live in indiana and support is enforced through indiana courts. The mother
A: Hello. The short answer to your questions is no. My question to you is, if you are paying child support, why are you still giving mom money? Do you give it directly to your child? Do you pay the money for his "needs" directly to the place asking for it? e.g. the soccer club, football team, doctor, school? If you're just handing additional money over to mom, maybe you should try a different approach. She will either stop asking, or you can pay the "extra" money directly to the entities asking for it. Keep your payment records. Thanks for your question and best of luck!
Q. My ex-wife lives in a different county than me. The DHR manager is her cousin. Can I get the county assigned changed?
A: Hello. DHR does not represent you, which is why you feel that way. They actually represent the person trying to collect child support. The Income Withholding Order follows you when you change jobs. It can only pull from the employers listed on the Order. So it absolutely can only come from one source if that's the only source listed. The only reason to come out of two jobs is because one job does not pay the full amount owed. You don't state why you told DHR about your second job? Not looking at the current IWO in effect so it's difficult to provide information past this. Might not be a bad idea to have a consultation with local counsel where the case is to see how they can help. Thanks for your question and best of luck!
Q. what do I need to file to keep ex husbands alcoholic girlfriend away from our children?
A: Hello. You can try and file a PFA on behalf of your kids against the g/f. Or, file for a modification of custody and see if that gets the attention of dad regarding who he chooses to have around his children. Best of luck!
Q. Aren't IWOs standard for child support in initial custody cases unless otherwise agreed to by both parties? (AL)
A: Hello. In the counties where I practice, all of our orders state that IWO's are required by the code section you describe and our judge's routinely issue them and site that code section as grounds for the order. It is best practice to require IWOs for child support because otherwise it is up to the parties to track who paid the support, when and, how much. An IWO is much simpler for everyone; however, you can both agree to not have one issued. Best of luck and thank you for your question.
