I have another question regarding the proper procedure for

Hi again,I have another question regarding the proper procedure for collecting unpaid shared expenses. My original parenting plan was finalized Feb 23, 2008 and I think the laws have changed, so I don't know if I am able to enforce my childrens' father's payment of his share of medical, educational, sports, clothing expenses.. The wording in my parenting plan is as follows:"Reason for Deviation From Standard CalculationThe child support amount ordered in paragraph 3.5 deviates from the standard calculation for the following reasons:The children spend a significant amount of time with the parent who is obligated to make a support transfer payment. The deviation does not result in insufficient funds in the receiving parent's household to meet the basic needs of the children. The children do not receive public assistance.The factual basis for these reasons is as follows: The parents share custody equally, the obligee earns more than the oblior, and the obligor will reimburse the obligee for his proportionate share of daycare/preschool, agreed upon extracurricular activities and health insurance premiums."My concern is that it only specifies health insurance premiums whereas now (I had it changed January 18, 2017 because I now have full custody) parenting plans state that all uninsured medical costs need to be shared. According to our original plan his proportionate share was 42.4% and mine was 58.5%.I have only kept records since 2014 but have a spreadsheet detailing all medical, educational, extracurricular, and clothing expenses that I have paid for in full while he did not contribute.I cannot seem to find any forms online in order to start the enforcement process (only contempt and I do not think that should be my first approach). I asked DCS for help, but they said they cannot enforce it unless it is a set, dollar amount.Thanks for any guidance.

I need an experienced attorney that has previous dealing

I need an experienced attorney that has previous dealing with Los Angeles county CSSD. Based on my income of $73000 the judge of the court has ordered to pay monthly child support. My income was decreased and I was not able to keep up with the monthly payments. Since I realized that, I basically paid some of the expenses that were necessity for the welfare of my children and did not pay much to child support department. My kids live with their mother and she does not work.The following were the expenses that I incurred on behalf of my children:Clothing,Mortgage interest payment, food, Property tax .tuition, summer camp.I have already submitted the substantiations for the expenses that incurred in their behalf to the court clerk and my court schedule is this coming Monday. I indicated that these payments were direct payment on behalf of my kids and I should be able to get credits towards my child support monthly obligation. I was advised that the judge would consider these payments. Is this correct?

Me and my ex boyfriend have a 2 year old together and he was unemployed for the first year and a half of our sons life so I had to completely support myself with child care expenses and medical which was very difficult. He now has a job and paying some, not as much as what would be court ordered. I will make it legal but low on finances right now.

My baby's father is not complying with the following. Can I

my baby's father is not complying with the following. Can I take him to court for non compliance?He is supposed to pay $250 per month, only pays $175He is supposed to provide health insurance for the baby, he is not paying (I have insurance under work).He wants to modify child custody agreement where he becomes primary residence. He served me with papers to for a hearing on January 19. At the moment, because I can't afford child care, he verbally agreed to become the "child care" and now make me pay child support of $300. He is a waiter, goes to school part time, does not have reliable transportation (he relies on his mother for transportation), he lives at home, and shares his room with Gabby. He served me and I don't have the money to pay for an attorney I only make $2000 per month (I pay apartment, car/gas, food). Does he have grounds to do this?

I just found all this out last night from my husband of one

I just found all this out last night from my husband of one year. We've been together for 5 years. 16 years ago he formed a relationship with a girl. She got pregnant. Said it wasn't his but another boyfriend she had. The other man signed the birth certificate and moved to Alaska. My husband stayed with her for 4 more years. He payed all bills including the child's medical. At this time she was going through the state to get child support from Alaska guy. His payments came sometimes, most the time not. When my husband left, he continued to pay her bills. He said he felt bad for her. When the boy was 13, she tells my husband he is the father. They take a Dna test through her sister who works in the health field in Arizona. Him and I get married in September of 2015. He quit paying her bills after we we'd. In May of 2016, she tells him the Dna test, they took two years ago says he's the father. He starts paying her bills again. But last month she had to go to court for being a negligent parent and told the judge the Alaska guy is the father. This all sounds really shady to me. She's getting child support from two men for the same child. I've told my husband to get a second opinion from his choice of Dna testing but he won't listen to me. Is her actions legal? Can I force a Dna test? If he's the father that's fine but she's conning one of these men. Thank you.
