Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thanks so much for your help. The only thing that my lawyer and I discussed was that I had no biological children, and that I had two foster daughters, but no mention of support for any children. I did not agree to support any children in my divorce degree. The ex-wife did not sign or contest the divorce, and it was granted to me last year. Last week I received a notice of non support for the two foster daughters and needed to know what my rights were. I have not lived with ex-wife and children for 5 yeats or more. I have to meet court for nonsupport on Wednesday. I don't know what paperwork to take beside my divorce papers. What paper do I need form the foster children program, stating that the children are no longer in my care?
