My wife's son, was living with us when we got married but

My wife's son, was living with us when we got married but decide because he wasn't comfortable living in a different city that he wanted to live with his dad in his home town. At that time she had full custody and was recieving child support. So my wife and her x went to court and changed the paper work and now they have joint custody and she has him here with us during summer, also in the papers its states that no child support would be paid by either party, now 3 years later they filed paper with the county to try to get child support from her. She makes about 12000.00 a year and his income is about 75000.00 per year. Can they even do this or will they determined that he makes to much to support a claim for child support.

I currently moved into an apartment that was out of my

I currently moved into an apartment that was out of my budget until my ex boyfriend who is also the father of my unborn child said not to worry and told me he would pay 300 dollars a month to help with the difference. He had also promised to pay my bills for the month of Aug as well, however, went back on that promise yesterday after starting a fight. Everything he said he would do is in texts from him. Is there anything I can do to hold him accountable?

I received summons from my husband of our wedding and

Hi, I received summons from my husband for annulment of our wedding and claiming that there are no assets to be exchanged. I was OK with that as even I didn't want to live with him anymore. I didn't respond to the summons as I didn't want to spend time on hiring a lawyer and go through all the hearing process. I didn't want his money but just wanted to get rid of that psychopath, so I checked online and there was an option to not respond if there is nothing I am expecting. We don't have kids so I didn't want child support etc., I don't know the status of the case whether the wedding is cancelled or not. But I received Declaration of Disclosure notice from his attorney where he claims that I have some gold, money in my possession in his Assets and Debts form. The form says -As this is the default proceeding,petitioner waives final disclosure requirements. Does that mean I need to return him the gold and money he claims to be under my possession? He has put all fake figures there? What should I do? Please help

I am a Philippine citizen currently residing and working in

I am a Philippine citizen currently residing and working in Brunei. I am now 2 months pregnant. The father is a Singapore citizen and i assume he is still residing and working in Singapore. Both the father and I are not legally married and only had a brief relationship. I told him that I am pregnant and he is the father of the child. I do not expect anything from him but to just at least recognize this child and be responsible as a father even though we are not married. He walked out on me and cut off all contacts with me and I am now unable to reach him. I assume that he did not want to take any responsibility and do not want to do anything with the baby. I demand some child support in the future and I can prove to him by doing a paternity or DNA test. But how can I go about this? Since we are both living far from each other? The only way I could contact is through his parents who are also in Singapore. But I may cause some sort of trouble. Is there a way for me to legally sue him for child support? Should it be through lawyers here in Brunei, Philippines or Singapore? I plan to give birth here in Brunei because i have my full family and friends' support here. The child will forever be illegitimate but at least the father should recognise and be responsible for my baby. Please help. thanks.

My son-in-law has no legal rights to s child from a previous

My son-in-law has no legal rights to his child from a previous relationship. However, trying to be nice he told his X he would try to help her out and pay her $600. A mo. for his son who is now 8. He explained to her in an e-mail that $600. Was going to be hard to do but he would try because he and his now wife have 3 children of their own. Can the court hold him to this agreement from an e-mail even if he has no legal rights to the child anyway.

My ex filed a subpeona bank statements child support

My ex filed a subpeona for my bank statements for our child support hearing. I already produce the required financial documentation. He asked for more and I refused. He filed a motion to compel. Does my bank have to produce those. The subpeona doesn't even go in front of a judge. The clerk signs it! How do I contest it? I am in Colorado?

My son is 17 and moving in with s dad. Dad has been paying

My son is 17 and moving in with his dad. Dad has been paying child support, but now we are going to need to modify child support and time sharing. I also need to file a contempt of court for additional monies owned that I never received from my ex. So here is my question is it to my an advantage with the court to first file the contempt or the modification? Is to my advantage to file the modification or wait for my ex to file the modification and then file the contempt or should I file the modification and contempt with the court on the same day?My ex makes more money then me, but he probably doesn't think so. Also from the original divorce decree he owes me a lot in back medical bills for my son. Please advise.

Pennsylvania. Married in 08 separated in 13, divorced in 2015. Had a baby boy in 09 (now 7). The divorce was final along with the child support in 2015. Our son primarily lives with his mother since the separation in 2013 and we have been amicably in exchanging and working out the schedule with our son. I see him 2 overnights per week. I want to try to get it increased to 3 one week and 4 the following week. Is this something difficult to do? Earlier this year ex wife's new husband and I got into a domestic issue which caused a major ript between us. There is no amicable relationship now
