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

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?
