My child is 17 and moving in with s other parent here is

My child is 17 and moving in with his other parent here is Florida. His parent has been paying me child support and I am sure he will file some type of motion to stop paying child support and to get me to pay child support. Here is my question, what forms will they use in Florida to do this (because I would like to review them), and what county in Florida? Will it be in their county or my county to file? We both live out of the counties that the original divorce was filed now. Also, they paid child support for this month due on the 1st, so will I need to reimburse?

I am wondering if the verbiage used in the Child Support

I am wondering if the verbiage used in the Child Support Stipulation previously filed with the court would exclude me from having to pay child support going forward. For financial reasons I had to go back to doing contract work which pays more, and now she wants to file to modify child support yet again. Here is the verbiage in the document.Petitioner has provided adequate evidence of his recent reduction in income and the Parties agree that taking Petitioner's new income into consideration and applying the child support guidelines results in neither party owing the other any child support both going forward and retroactive to August 1, 2015.I know this next part doesn't matter but if she needed the money that would be one thing, but her & her fiancé make over $150K annually. I however am the sole provider for my family of 5 and paying any amount is going to put me in the red.So from a legal perspective, I am hoping that since they put the verbiage in there about 'going forward', that it would exclude me from future child support obligations.

My ex's lawyer keeps postponing court dates And keeps

My ex's lawyer keeps postponing court dates And keeps insisting I earn $2500 a month when I've never earned this amount in my life. She also filed a declaration saying I left 3 years ago and abandon my familyJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: This is all about my ex being as nasty to me as possible with no limits to his abuse to keep me and my children financially unstable on my end because he doesn't want to pay child support I have gone through so many emotions and I'm in an impossible place now. Want to know if I should fire my lawyer or if you think he's actually trying to help me I owe him money and he knows I can't pay. He never responded to the declaration saying I left three years ago. We came to an agreement that is not fair as far as child support goes but I signed it just to end the divorce (hence agreeing I make $2500 a month) I've since turned in my tax return to DCSS The judge reviewed our agreement and sent it back. Nobody (my lawyer) won't tell me a thing.JA: OK got it. Last thing — Family Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).
