so do i or we fill this document out and go to the courts? what if half of that information listed has not been decided upon yet. for example schooling, holidays, etc.?
what about the child support? i have recently gotton a raise and now earn more than the father, however, i believe the father should participate in providing for our son. As off now he approximately provides $150 in food/pamper etc. for our son and because of his income he is unable to help more financially. My concern is if i earn more and i am primary custody parent (because he lives with me ) will i have to ever pay the father child support because i earn more?
so, the parenting plan also includes a section for child support disclosure specifics? Can we add what the father will be able to provide until there is a change in income? as long as we both agree to it?
Also, if we agree upon most everything listed in the parenting plan form, we can agree to have it reviewed for portential changes at our discretion? say on a yearly basis? would we also have to petition for changes in holiday schedules ? for example: i would have him most holidays because he will be working. but if in the future he is able to secure a holiday do i still have to petition that change, or can we decide between the two of us as long as we agree? since it would not be a permanent availability?
I am still not clear as to where on the parenting plan we disclose the child support information?
or is it a seperate form that needs to be filled out and turned into the court?
Once these forms are complete and turned in how long before we know if it is approved?
and is there any other court visits or hearings that need to be attended after approval?
I was reviewing the child support table info and it states "underemployed" . what exacatly does this mean?
Okay, so what i understand is that there is no need to have a court order for child support unless we are not in agreement. Would it be okay to have a notorized letter stating our agreement?
or would i still need to submit to the court ?
Because what i am understanding is that it is not necessary if we can agree.
question 3/4/5 are regarding the parenting plan. could you readdress the anwers to this please
could you clarify these 2 questions from the prior post. (down below)
so, we should submit child support through the court; however we are able to deviate from this amount if we both agree?
the link you just sent me concerning the child support form is not working. could you check please.
is there any other form that is available for child support or is it just one standard form ?
i will have additional questions once i can see the form you linked. Thank you
under #3 the link says it is no longer available, with error on page . Is there another link you can provide for the form.
do you know if once the parental agreement is approved, do we need to go to a meeting with the court or do they just send you a letter etc.?
also regarding filing claim for my son on taxes. Is it necessary to split years with the father if he is not financially able to uphold the required amount of child support on a monthly basis? i let him claim our son for 2012, he used it for his rent, bills, etc.. since his pay was not covering all of his financial obligations.
