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. Could I ask for back child support for the medical I paid for the birth of our child and the year and a half he did not pay anything?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet, trying to get finances together. Just seeing if it is possible or that is in the past and no court order was ever filedJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Is he responsible also for medical

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.

I am currently going through legal with my ex wife. In late

Good Afternoon - I am currently going through legal with my ex wife. In late March I filed a retraining order on my ex wife because my daughter came home with a black and blue eye that her mother gave her. (Not to get into it too much but my daughter was coming home saying her mother hits her, says she's dumb, has dumb eyes and her freckles are ugly.) Her mother didn't take her to school for 20plus days throughout the school year. One time when she did take her to school she sent her in DIRTY DIRT BLACK clothing. May 16th we went to the court for the protective order hearing. The judge yelled at my ex a few times in the court to conduct herself in his room because this wasn't a laughing matter; however the judge lifted the protective order saying at that time he found it to be an isolated incident but if I wanted to modify and bring back the case I can. My ex wife and I had 50/50 custody. After this incident my ex agreed to modify the plan with only getting my daughter every other weekend. I sat my daughter down and told her his new arrangement. My daughter started shaking, crying and had such fear and anxiety. It was at that time that I decided I would not be doing right by my daughter if I sent her back to her mother. I decided that I wasn't going to send her back and file for full custody with supervised visitation. I called the school and got my daughters work for the last 2 weeks of school. Jumping forward. My ex filed an emergency ex parte pick up order and a motion of contempt. The judge denied her ex parte order. It just so happens she filed that 2 days before I was able to file the modification. I have filed the modification and now my ex has filed an addendum motion of contempt with the court. Today I received a standard letter in the mail from an attorney who assisted my ex on her addendum motion of contempt. In this she mentions that I haven't paid child support, wants to hold me in contempt and wants to have additional time sharing with my daughter for the time she's missed. My question is what happens now? What should I expect? Does my ex still have to answer my petition? Which comes first? (To add a note about child support. I was ordered to pay $125 a week; however my ex wife was ordered to pay 50% of all of my daughters expenses. My ex would demand cash and I told her I was not paying cash but that she needed to pick up the additional paper work and file through the state and I would be more than happy to do this. My ex every month would end up owing me after health insurance, school lunch & our daughters extra curricular actives - she has never paid a time to any of this. I even have proof of attempting to cerify her the medical bills that she would not sign for.) Thank you!
