My original child support order was done in Prince County

Hello my original child support order was done in Prince George County Maryland. In 2014 I applied for a modification. I currently live in SC and have been for several years. I was finally informed back in November of 2016 that a modification was granted back several mo ths ago reducing my child support payment but SC denies recieving these changes and still holds me to the original court order. My children have sinve been emancipated and the child support amount has been reduced to apply to the arrears still SC denies recieving any new updates on my order and I only have a voicemail from a representative in Maryland stating the changes. I have requested my updated child support order be sent to myself and SC department od social services whom keeps sending suspension against my license. How do I get a copy of my updated order for myself and then to sc DSS to reflect these changes?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Original order is in Prince George County Maryland. I reside in SC now which DSS has sometime picked up the original order but not the updated order from Maryland.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Honestly I can not find one I can afford.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: SC DSS has since requested wage garnishment for the old court order and continues to deny recieving anything from Prince George County Maryland where my ex wife resides along with the other emancipated child. Also the original order included my son which lives with me here in SC and has been since he was 15 he is now 22 years old. The modification included a reduction in child support payment and a credit as well. Still I recieved nothing from the court regarding this only information over the phone from Georgia and they continue to say they have sent SC DSS the new information. SC DSS continues to deny recieving any updated changes to my court order and I still have not recieved my updated court order.

1. Is there a fee for this service? 2. I am the legal

Hi Pearl, 1. Is there a fee for this service? 2. I am the legal guardian of a 16 year old who will be 17 July 13th. She is pregnant due date 9.28.17. Both she and her boyfriend live with me now. He will be 18 mid April. If she moves out with my permission after he graduates HS together am I still legally responsible for her until she is 18 if they do not get married? Does her having a child change the situation at all? Thanks. Deborah(###) ###-####JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Family Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason. Family law varies by state. What state are you in?Customer: California. Ok I'll do it.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I am concerned about my legal responsibility for my pregnant 17 year old. I assume I am still responsible if she stays with me until she is 18 but I am not sure what the status is if she moves out unless she applies for emancipation and I do not see her going to court to be emancipated with an infant to take care of. She would not be able to prove that she could support herself!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I might have to co-sign for a studio apartment for them so they could start their family life. If they were homeless there are great services here (Marin County north of SF). I just do not know how long or far my legal responsibility extends and if her soon to be a Mom changes anything. Thank you. She has no job. He has not job yet, but will receive $889 a month from AB12 money (Foster care). I can access a small inheritance for her of about $1000 a month starting in July. So, if I found an inexpensive studio they might be able to make it with some help. ***** *****(###) ###-####***@******.***
