She never mentioned the order to me. She had kept a sealed lip about it. I have only now started the court proceedings and we have not appeared in court yet.
Only after I discovered about the court order and I was given the order from court on paying the search fee.
Please answer my question.
All I know about the situation is what I told you in my text.
Are suggesting that I should be served on my return from my trip even if it took few months. Not being served is ground good enough to put aside any decision made in my absent?
Will I be compelled to pay child support in retrospect?
In retrospect, I mean for all the time I was away even when I was out of job?
You advice is very true. In our appearance for custody/parenting, as I mentioned in my initial text, we were both allowed shared parenting as usual and child support was not imposed on either of us. And when I returned from my trip, I continued my responsibility as a parent, least expecting that child support would come into play. There is an insinuation of child support in retrospect and this surprises me. I do see great rational in your advise and I salute your wisdom.
On the same issue, I was told that I was not served the parenting order because there was an order not to serve me since I was out of the country. What are my rights and obligations to regain parenting of my children.
Please explain substitute service to me. Does that mean I did not have to be served, and if I did, by what means?
Thank you. I did not see any advert. But in any case, like you said, I am back and I have filed to vary the decision in the best interest of the children. Certainly, their best interest is for me to have a parenting right over them as well. This is a right I am entitled to as a parent since I have done nothing wrong to them, nothing whatsoever. I love them and they love me. I would be very surprised if I should be deprived of such right by a court. But I believe in the integrity of the court and I hope I would not be disappointed.
When relationship break down due to irreconcilable differences, and with no abuse of any sort, what are the conditions that would favor any of the parties over the other for custody of the children? If there were a request for shared custody, what are the reasons that would deny that?
The question I have just asked is a follow up to my case that is to be heard on the 22nd of November. I am asking for a shared custody and my ex is counter claiming to refuse that because she is craving for child support. This is indicated in the affidavit. I believe that both parents being in the lives of the children should take precedence over money. I sincerely need shared custody because I want the children to be in both of our lives. I also want to feel that right as a parent. I want to be able to help them without a hammer over my head.
I am sorry if I went beyond the limit. I never knew until now. In any case, I would thank you for your assistance so far and I would definitely get back to you when the need be.
