I'm researching the termination of parental rights and the effect it will have on an outstanding child support debt. My boyfriend is the father of a child he has never seen, the mother moved to WA state, remarried and has another child. She has implied that she wishes to have her new husband adopt my boyfriends son. I'm trying to see what this will mean for his outstanding debts for child support.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: That's the tricky part. The child was conceived in Louisiana, the mother then moved to Florida where the child was born, they now live in Washington State. I'm not sure which court to file the petition under, or which child support service to contact.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes we talked to an attorney in Louisiana, but he thinks that it would be best to hire a Washington lawyer since that is where they currently reside.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

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?

If you work out of the country (US) and pay taxes in that country, is it possible for the court to use your job in deciding child support? Also, if you have job out of country but you have a job inside the US, are they able to just use the job currently in the US to determine child support?

My sister is involve in a family court case in WV that was filed by the state for child support - state as petitioner, parents as respondents. Now, the same case has become a custody case with the parents randomly assigned as petitioner and respondent. I know that petitioners and respondents are supposed to stay the same throughout the case, but is there a law that spells that out?

We have always paid child support through online banking,

We have always paid child support through online banking, recently we had to close the account due to fraudulent activity that we used to pay out of that was connected directly to my husband's ex-wife online bankaccount. We are now sending her money through email request, where she would need to link her account once again. She is refusing to do so and also states that our banking needs to remain the same and that there's no reason for her to change the way that she is receiving child support from us. I don't know why she thinks she has a say in where we bank. We have already closed the account, so there is no way for that to happen. She's refusing to accept the payment by not setting up the link to her bank account. Are we obligated to send child support in another way? Can I just keep a record of all the times we have attempted to send payment, and put the money in a separate account? She has also stated that she will not accept a check. It is also our fear that she will amass a numerous amount of checks (if we send them to her) and cash them all at once. We are ordered through the divorce paperwork to pay her child support, back child support, back spousal support, and back reimbursement for medical expenses School tuitions and therapy appointments. We are in California in Los Angeles county.
