Q. girlfriend and I broke up. Have 2 kids and lived together and supported. Now kicked out and is threatening back support?
A: You should meet with an attorney to discuss your case. You need to be named the father in a court order to best protect yourself. If you have been supporting the children, you may not owe any back support. It all friends on the facts.
Q. How do I go about finding out financial information regarding my child’s father?
A: I don't know if you are working with an attorney or not, and I don't know if you are married with him or not. I would suggest that you should consult with an attorney, either a private attorney or the State's Attorney.
Q. My childs father and I have our kid 50/50. Do I legally have a say in who can and can't be around her when he has her?
A: I dont know if you have already been to court. Perhaps you have children together and are not married, perhaps you are married. You don't tell us this information. If you feel that there are negative effects on your children if certain people are around them, yes it is a good idea that your children are not near those people. If the father does not agree with you that it is negative on the children, you will need to have a Judge order it. A Judge may or may not agree with you. It depends on the facts of how it affects the children.
Q. Left wife for Brit. Brit is bipolar, but on meds. Have 30/70 temp custody. Wife wants brit's name on custody form,
A: If she thinks that the kids are in danger , she can do what she thinks is appropriate. That does not mean that a Judge would agree with her. If you are being pressured and you both are not coming to an agreement, you need to get a Judge involved.
Q. Mother of child accused of domestic violence by her current husband. Can I be awarded custody if she is found guilty?
A: You definitely need to go to court to obtain a court order for you to have custody and for you to stop paying child support.
Q. My children have been living with their father for 7 years, No legal document stating so. Do I need to file for custody?
A: Yes, you need to get a court order. I would talk with an attorney in person.
Q. My ex and I have an Agreed Order for paying tuition at DePaul University.I am not allowed access to academic grades.
A: Whether you can terminate the order certainly depends on why the order was entered into in the first place. It sounds odd to have such an order. Are you paying any of the expenses of the schooling?
Q. My brother had a baby with a married women, he has Dna papers to proof he is the father, the mother is denying vistis
A: Your father must go to court to have himself named as the father first. That court is the court that would grant visitation.
Q. I was wanting to marry my fiance but he has back child support will I have to pay for it as well I'm in illinois.
A: As you describe your situation, he will remain responsible for child support. You personally will not be responsible for his child support. However, some of the money that he makes during the marriage to you will need to be used to pay his child support. Ordinarily, money made during the marriage belongs to the marriage. I would suggest you and he talk, so that you both understand everything.
