Legal Answers
200 Questions Answered
Q. i got 4 ticket do these carry points? or i pay them?
A: None of those tickets carry points, but you can try to negotiate or have an attorney do so.
Q. I was petitioned for child support, but an agreement was made and adjudged and dismissed. I was served again for same.
A: A private out of court agreement, unless signed by the court, is not valid to modify a coutr order, and is not itself a court order. However, it can be evidence to show the court. As such, your ex can still petition you to go to court. Also, if there was any public assistance involved and the County is a Petitioner, you can not settle with your ex without the county. You should contact an attorney.
Q. My daughter will be turning 21 in March 2022. When should I file to have it stopped. I also live in PA she lives in ny.
A: You should likely file a month before her birthday (assuming there is nothing extending support to 22 in your divorce). You can file by downloading the form and e-mailing or regular mail the petition. Or you could hire an attorney who can do everything for you.
