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 am 70 years old and retired 1 year ago. I started working

I am 70 years old and retired 1 year ago. I started working part time 10 months ago, because it was obvious that I could not afford to continue to pay $900. a month alimony for the rest of my life. My ex is on disability and receives half of my military retired pay along with the alimony. She hasn't re-married and I have. She hasn't worked since 1972, because I let her get away with not working. We got divorced in 2000. My wife now is retired and has a small pension from her late husband and gets her share of his social security. I average $1000. per month from my part time job and get $2571 from social security along with half of my military retirement. The court (in Arkansas) wants to use my wife's assets as some of my usable income to determine my ability to pay alimony still. My wife came into this marriage with a house which she sold and we used the proceeds of that to help to pay for our house which I have paid off with my income after living here about 3 years (paid off in about 2003). My attorney says that I might lose this court battle and have to pay her court and attorney costs. Also, he and the ex's attorney agree that alimony could be increased if the judge thinks that my wife and I are being evasive about our savings. We took out a substantial amount of money from the bank and deposited it in a safe deposit box AFTER my attorney advised me to do so. Now, with our financial affidavits and bank and credit card statements for the last 5 years in the hands of the ex's attorney, they think we are being evasive and hiding money. But, my wife intends on the money she put in the safe deposit box, should and will all go to her children upon her passing. It's her money and this should not be a factor in the ability to get the alimony dropped. Please help us and advise what you would recommend as our next step. The other attorney thinks she will prevail, especially if the judge thinks we are being evasive and has made an offer to check with her client on whether or not to settle by me dropping the motion and she would pay all of her attorneys fees to this point. My attorney wants to know how to proceed.

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.
