Legal Answers
35 Questions Answered

Q. What is certificate of representation and parties and affidavit of service by u.s mail?
A: A certificate of representation is a document a lawyer files to tell the court that they are representing one of the parties. An affidavit of service is a document attesting under oath to the fact that another document was served on the opposing party by mail.
Q. Does custodianship end at age 18 or at graduation date?
A: I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "custodianship," but child support obligations end when the child has BOTH turned 18 and graduated. If still in secondary school, the obligation can continue until age 20.
Q. My ex signed a recognition of parentage for my twins and I believe he is not the father how can I get genetic testing
A: Generally, you can ask the court to order testing for the person you believe to be the father and, if necessary, your ex.
