Q. Child support case hasn't been reviewed in years. Could back pay be required?
A: There is a chance, although probably very unlikely. The earliest a child support modification becomes effective is generally the month after the action to increase child support was filed. This can be later if the party wasn't served the same month the case was filed. You also aren't guaranteed this effective date as there often has to be a showing that the person can afford the retroactive support. Further, if the party has been doing other things to help support (purchasing some clothes, shoes, etc.), the Court may decline to order any retroactive child support. Long story short, if you think you may be entitled to increased child support, you should file the action now.
Q. hi I was looking for advice on how to handle court and getting custody of 4 minor children back into my custody
A: When a child is removed from a parent due to allegations of abuse or neglect, the parent will be appointed an attorney at the first hearing if they can't afford counsel. If you can't afford an attorney, you should request an attorney appointed and then speak with the attorney about your best options. I'm sorry to hear about this. The good news is that children are generally returned to their parents within a relatively short period of time when the allegations are found to be unfounded.
