Hi. I will be remarrying a US citizen and resident. Because my former spouse is extremely vindictive and malicious, my fiancee asked me tonight if her liabilities in Idaho would be at risk in the event that my former spouse gained additional spousal/child support in Alberta Canada. Her home? Assets? Bank accounts? Alberta ranks dead last in Canada for implementation of joint custody and shared parenting, and grossly biased/unfair judgments continue. Soon my 4 boys will be able to state who they want to be with, and this will greatly minimize this issue.

This is probably unusual. I was married to a man in 1961. In 1962, while he was stationed in Germany, I conceived a child with another man, in St. Petersburg FL. When my husband returned, I made him aware, and he was happy to accept, though shocked, the responsibility. Infant was born in Arizona. Both my husband and I signed the birth certificate at the hospital there. Our marriage lasted a short time. When Chuck was 2 1/2 years old, I remarried. When he (Chuck) was ten years old, I called directory assistance, got the name of his biological father, to let him know, and when a woman answered, I had second thoughts and hung up. I never tried to contact him again. My first husband quit paying the $50.00/mo. court ordered child support, when Chuck was about 5 years old. I never pursued him. As years went by, Chuck had a daughter, at age 18 yrs. She grew up, and is now a mother herself. She's my grand daughter, and she, as well as Chuck put on the pressure to find Chucks biological father!...and she (Ginger) found him in New Smyrna Bch. FL. We met up, and met his family. They are sure that "Spike" is Chucks father..they look almost identical...the Greek heritage is strong. No D.N.A. has been done. Spike met Chuck, Ginger and his/our great grand daughter, Lacy July 4th, 2015, at New Smyrna Beach FL.. I have several photos. I am mostly concerned, as Chucks mother, that he legally establish his birth right. Chuck has many of the same ailments, documented, that Spike has (that are not my side of the family ailments) arthritic gout, psoriasis. None of these 2 ailments exist in my family, to my knowledge. Anxiety d/o, both actually take the same pain control meds! What do you recommend, as far as the birth right issue? Not trying to milk him for money, I, as his mother am partitioning for what rightfully belongs to the son that Spiros Christus Andraktas, fathered with me, Betty Ruth Rabon.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NeverJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think I covered everything, thank you.

My sons father is taking me to court to modify child support

My sons father is taking me to court to modify child support orders because he is 60K in arrears. He was in prison for 16 years and there was a waiver during the time he was incarcerated. He has already asked for an administrative review with the child support office and the deemed the arrears to be correct. I will not voluntarily waive the funds. Our child is of age now, but just barley starting out in life and the measly $200 I get a month mostly goes to him when there is a need. What are the possible court decisions? Can they waive the whole amount? He is fully employed, married and has a good paying job now.

In my divorce decree completed back in 2000. My son is

In my divorce decree completed back in 2000. My son is turning 18 this year in MAy and in the paperwork it says. I should pay until "child reaches the age of Eighteen except that a child becomes 18 years of age while enrolled in and attending a secondary School on a full time basis, then such support shall continue until the child completes secondary school, provided that such support shall not be required after the child attains 22 years of age."I thought that secondary school is considered high school and post-secondary school is College. So what does the state of Georgia define as "secondary School"?Thanks for your timeDerek West ***@******.***
