In Indiana, once a child turns 19 and is then emancipated

In Indiana, once a child turns 19 and is then emancipated and a new child support worksheet is drawn up just for the younger children, but leaving off the child who turned 19, is it not also the case that the child who is emancipated no longer needs to be covered under the insurance of the parent who pays the insurance and the child support?Said another way, once the new child support worksheet comes into effect, Is it true that there is no obligation on behalf of the insurance-providing parent to continue providing insurance for the emancipated child? Isn't that assumed since the emancipated child is no longer mentioned on the agreement?

Colorado child support changes. Three children. Daughter

Colorado child support changes. Three children. Daughter graduated from HS at 18 years old. She turns 19 this month Nov 2016. Son #1 turned 17 in Sep 2016. Son #2 turned 15 in Aug 2016. Child support worksheet has been updated from 3 children to 2 children. Both parties agree to the changes. I found conflicting information of how to submit the changes.Options:(1) Just update the child support worksheet and get notarized.(2) Update the child support worksheet and submit it to the court.(3) Update the child support worksheet and submit JDF 1408 Motion to Terminate Child Support for the child turning 19 (don't know if it should be submitted before or after she turns 19).(4) Update the child support worksheet and submit JDF 1408 and JDF 1409 Order to Terminate Child Support for the child turning 19.

Background: I divorced in NC State, wake country, 5 years

Background:I divorced in NC State, wake country, 5 years ago. I pay child support for two children 11 and 16. MY ex wife works 5 days a week at a hair salon. Child support calculations using the NC State Child Support worksheet show I owe 1800 a month. I pay $2000 a month.Problem:She wants to hire a nanny and pays her $250 / week. approximately $1000 a month. IF she does this, does it count as a child care expense in the NC State Child Support Worksheet. What is a reasonable child care expense for an 11 year old and 16 year old when the mother works during the day and has the kids full time?

I live in the state of Virginia with sole physical and legal

Hello and good morning.I live in the state of Virginia with sole physical and legal custody of my twin daughters, granted by the state of Virginia. The father of my children has recently been released from Virginia state penitentiary and had his parole transferred to Tennessee. My question is, if I file for child support now will he have to come to court? What happens if he doesn't have a job? And do I need to provide the cost of after school child care expenses I pay?

According to the Cochise County website regarding filing a

According to the Cochise County website regarding filing a response the following is listed:Filing a ResponseIt is not necessary to file a response if the respondent agrees with the information contained in the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. If the respondent disagrees then a written response will need to be prepared by the respondent or his/her attorney and filed with the Clerk's office. The Respondent has 20 days from the date of service to file a response (30 days if served out of state or after the first publication) and is required to provide a copy of the response to the Petitioner or to the Petitioner's attorney. The filing fee is $ 204.00. Get Sample Response Forms. Look under “Family Law Forms” and scroll down to the section relating to “Responses”. The heading will need to be changed to reflect that the filing is in the Superior Court in Cochise County.Believing it was not necessary from reading the above statement I let the time frame elapse. Now my wife is changing items on the parenting plan and child support worksheet from what was originally agreed upon. She filed the Application and affidavit for default. It says I have 10 days to respond. What steps do I need to take to respond?

I am going through a divorce and most part everything has

I am going through a divorce and for the most part everything has been civil. We have few assets to divide or debt to split. However we can not agree upon living arrangements/child support for our son. We had agreed upon a reasonable amount but the child support worksheet shows that it should be almost double what we agreed upon which would leave me with no money to live off of. Is there a way to have the judge sign off on an agreed upon amount of child support? Is there a legal way to not have child support paid through the courts and paid to his mother directly? I live in Arizona.

I'm divorced with a court-issued consent order support. My

I'm divorced with a court-issued consent order for child support. My son drops off child support in a few months (he turns 18), leaving just my daughter. My ex-wife says that, in lieu of going to court or paying for a lawyer, she will sign a document that stipulates the new amount as derived from the official Virginia child support worksheet. Is such a document legally binding? Does it need to be filed with the court? Does it need to be notarized? Thanks.

This is kind of a two part question: I have an existing

This is kind of a two part question:I have an existing legal parental plan from my divorce in 2013. My ex-husband currently has primary physical custody and I'm the non-custodial parent. We share joint legal custody when it pertains to 'religious upbringing.' However, the parental plan states 'in the event of a disagreement the primary physical custodial parent has final decision making authority" I'm not trying to change the religion their father has, or stop them from going to his church, but I do take them to my church when they are with me on the weekends. This is because I only have them on the weekends, and wouldn't be able to attend church otherwise. Is this a violation of the parental plan? He is completely against me taking the kids to my church and has asked me to stop. Also, what's the point of having joint legal custody if the final decision rests with him? It feels kind of pointless to even have 'joint' legal custody if this is the case. Can a court persecute me for taking them to my place of worship?I have also filed a modification for child support. I was going to do this on my own: I completed and filed all the necessary court paperwork, filed a motion for pauper, did a child support worksheet, had him served with the paperwork (after refusing to sign in front of a notary). However when I checked the court status website, I see he's got a lawyer now. I'm wondering if I should get a lawyer as well. I'm currently ordered to pay $400/month but my income is only around $1400/month, with my monthly rent payments at $775/month (not including utilities) and haven't been able to make the full payments, though I do pay what I can and haven't missed a payment date.I'm also currently receiving food stamps. I'm currently saving to file for bankruptcy, so need to pay a lawyer for that. To get another lawyer would be out of my price range and I'm feeling kinda stuck. He however has been making threats to me and saying 'he's going to keep track of all the bad parenting things I do" and tell his lawyer. I'm not sure what he'd find since I don't really do anything illegal when it comes to my children. I've been receiving threatening emails and phone calls from him about calling the police, child protection services (for giving my 6 year old son DayQuil for a terrible cough, which states on the bottle ages 6 and up receive a specified dosage) He claims I'm poisoning our son. He's also been sending me emails saying that I'm selfish, spiteful, a bad parent, and the name calling and list goes on...I've even received a nasty email from his mother. I've emailed him and told him his threats, accusations, and continuous attacks to my integrity are harassment. This has been going on for three years. I'm just afraid all this will come up in my child support modification court hearing, when all I need to do is reduce my monthly payments to something I can afford.
