Is a claim being made against you for parenting or child support ?

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No. I don't know for sure if I am a father. I had a relationship and next I heard she had left Darwin because she was pregnant.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I am unemployed. With no access to a future. I just wanted to see about the truth.
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

There are presumptions to parenting matters which covers child support that could apply.

Would you like to discuss this matter on the telephone ? I have extended a special offer to you if you prefer.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
