71 Questions Answered
Q. In the state of New Jersey I pay child support but can’t offord it
A: Thank you for your question. The court calculates child support based on a number of factors. To have that amount adjusted you need to prove a permanent change in circumstances. Unemployment is generally not considered permanent. You are likely being summoned to a court appearance for an enforcement hearing because you have not been paying the full amount owed. While it is admirable that you continue to make payments as you are able, you are still considered in arrears because you are not paying the full amount owed. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney who will help you understand all of your rights and obligations and help you decide the best course of, action moving forward.
Q. I called my daughter like I do everyday come to my out my wife left the state of New Jersey with permission a call nothi
A: Thank you for your question. Your question is not clear if the other party left the state temporarily or moved out of state. If she moved out of state permanently without your permission and without a Court Order then you will want to file an Order to Show Cause. That is essentially an emergency motion telling the court you have an urgent matter that needs to be addressed. The best thing to do is to consult with an experienced family law attorney who can explain your options and guide you through the process.
Q. NJ jurisdiction vs Fla jurisdiction. No one will address Family Law issues on divorce and custody
A: Thank you for your question. Without having all the relevant information, it sounds like NJ has never taken jurisdiction because no one has asked them to do so. A petition to transfer the case from Florida to New Jersey must be filed. Then Florida will relinquish jurisdiction. Until then they, maintain ongoing jurisdiction over the children because it was where the original action was filed. The petition is likely to be granted because the children reside in New Jersey, and New Jersey would take over making modifications to the Florida order going forward. There is also the argument, via the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), that Florida is an inconvenient forum. The UCCJEA goes on to say that Florida retains jurisdiction UNTIL 1. the state determines that the child or the parents do not have significant connection with the state, or 2. a court of Florida or New Jersey determines that the children or the parents no longer reside in the state. That's a paraphrase, but you see the point. The best thing your niece can do is schedule a consult with an experienced family law attorney in New Jersey so she can receive advice specific to her situation and then she can make an informed decision on how to move forward.
