Q: 

child support Enforcement

A: Hi Carla, you will need to file a motion for contempt for the non-payment of child support. To have the court hold him in contempt you will need to prove that he has the ability to pay the child support at the time of the hearing on the Motion for Contempt. If you cannot meet that burden of proof the court may find your former husband in contempt but not willful contempt and if he is not found in willful contempt the court will not be able to order him incarcerated until he pays the amount of child support ordered at that hearing (a purge amount). To prove his ability to pay (given that he is...


Q: 

child support

To support a decrease in a child support obligation the paying parent will be required to prove to the court that they are unable to secure employment at a pay rate commiserate with his or her historical pay rate. With regard to your pending Motion for Contempt if your Former Husband has any assets from which he could draw  from to pay his child support the court will most likely find him...


Q: 

child support

A: Hi Paula, you should file a Motion for Rehearing on the child support arrears. The arrears should be calculated based upon both parties net incomes at the time the child support was then due. If the court imputed income to a party when that party had an income exceeding the imputed income the child support calculation for that period would be incorrect. Temporary child support orders are modifiable under the final order as the request to establish child support goes back to the date the original Petition was filed. In addition,

Q: 

child support / Unemployment

A: Hello Drew, you will need to file a supplemental petition for modification of child support. To do so you will need to show a change in circumstances that has occurred since the final judgment of dissolution and you will need to show that the change was unforeseen and not within your ability to control. However, if the court finds that you have other assets to draw from such as savings, home equity, excessive or extra personal property the court can deny your petition until those items have been liquidated to meet your child support obligation. If at all possible, your best course of action would be to submit an agreed order executed by you and your former wife stating what your new

Q: 

military pay and child support

A: The BAH and BAS may not be subject to garnishment but that does not mean they cannot be considered part of your Husband"s income for the purpose of calculating his child support obligation.

I hope this information was helpful to you. As always, I would advise that you arrange for an...


Q: 

Contempt/child support

A: Hi Tori, unless it was found that the mother had no capability to earn an income then it was an error to enter an order without a child support amount. That is what the appeals courts are for, to overturn the improper rulings of the trial courts. Be advised that you need to prove her income and this is done through the process of discovery. If you are going to attempt to do this on your own then pick up a copy of the Florida Family Law Rules, Florida Civil Rules of Procedure and the Local Rules for you circuit civil court. There are ways to get her employment/pay information directly from the employer and you will need to know the rules to do so. With regard to the contempt with timesharing I would avoid the...


Q: 

child support College

A: Mark: DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A LAWYER or ATTORNEY. I am someone who has experience with family law issues, and am sharing my OPINION only. For the exact law as it pertains to your specific case contact a Professional Attorney in your area/county. I recommend hiring a Professional Attorney: Most Attorneys offer 1/2 fee consultation time to discuss case and payment options.

HOWEVER, moving with out notification is a contempt of court issue: BUT because the move was...
