27 Questions Answered

Q. The father has primary custody. I’m having a surgery and can’t take my daughter for my time. Can I be held in contempt
A: No. The courts will not make someone exercise their time. The court will only enforce one's right to exercise his/her time with the child if they want to. Have your surgery, heal, and then resume your time with your child. Perhaps he may be willing to let you have 2 of his weeks in the future to "make up for it".
Q. we have had custody of our 11 year old grand daughter since she was 5 thru a chapter 5 award by the Franklin County,
A: I've responded to your question from later today. Same response would be applicable here.
Q. who can talk to us about how to adopt my 11 year old grandchild that we now have custody of. mother will not consent
A: If the mother will not consent, then you have to file to get her parental rights terminated. There are 11 grounds which could justify the court terminating parental rights, in addition to determining that it would be in the best interest of the child that the parent's rights be terminated. This is not an easy process and you will want an attorney to assist you. She will be provided an attorney if she cannot afford one.
Q. I'm paying 800 a month in child support which 95 is to the arrears that was for three kids. One child is 26 and the
A: They credit your arrears to the arrears, not to the payment you should be paying for the other child(ren). It sounds like you should file a Motion to Modify Child Support, to bring your main payment down (which could also cause your arrears payment to increase, but also means that the arrears would be paid off quicker.
Q. Does it matter that custodial parent doesn't work or financialy support kids at all
A: You should be paying something with a portion of your disability income. If she is intentionally not working, in order to avoid her child support obligation, then "yes" it matters.
Q. My husband’s daughter turns 18 next week, His ex wife pays medical insurance with us paying 60% if expenses not covered
A: Assuming she has graduated from high school, and the agreement/order states the child support ends at age 18 (and graduation from HS), then your husband is not obligated to pay. However, it sounds like it was scheduled ASAP before she turned 18 and that (without knowing "the rest of the story") the right thing to do would be to pay the 60%.
Q. My brother in law is have an situation with his child mother. He wants to get custody of her. What should he do?
A: Your brother-in-law needs to file a Complaint for Custody. Prior to that, it would be best for him to at least meet with a family law attorney about his case. The attorney can help guide him on what to do (and what not to do).
Q. Can I leave my 16-year-old son home alone for several nights with food, phone and people checking in on him?
A: You can, but if there if there is someone he can stay with, that might be a better idea. It also depends on his maturity level, and how and how often someone would be checking in, how far away you are going, and whether he knows what to do in an emergency. If he has another parent or someone close by, it would be better to have him stay with him/her/them, but you can use your best judgment.
Q. my boyfriend has had full custody of his daughter for 3 years but still owes back child support can it be cancelled?
A: He should have filed a Motion to Terminate the Child Support. If he didn't, he needs to ASAP. Anything that was owed before he got custody, he still needs to pay, unless the other party waives the right to receive it (in the form of a Consent Order).
