Hello;

Are you trying to determine which parent is entitled to the check?

Or are you trying to determine if the subsidy may be used in child support and spousal support calculations?

Both. What i need to do to request funds she owes me from that money.
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

The money is to be used for the purposes of supporting the child.

The federal plan, codified at 42 United States Code § 670 et seq. (1994 and Supp.1999), was passed in 1980 as part of the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act. Essentially, the program provides federal reimbursements to states that pay benefits to parents who adopt children with special needs.   2 Joan H. Hollinger, Adoption Law and Practice § 9.02, at 9-6 (Supp.1999).   Every state now has an adoption assistance program, and, because the statutory provisions governing the federal program are in Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, the benefits are typically called “IV-E benefits.”

Adoption assistance subsidies are not income to either parent, therefore they cannot be considered income in the child support calculation. Hamblen v. Hamblen, 54 P.3d 371 (Ariz. Ct. App. 2002); In re Paternity of M.L.B., 633 N.E.2d 1028 (Ind. Ct. App. 1994); Strandberg v. Strandberg, 664 N.W.2d 887 (Minn. Ct. App. 2003); County of Ramsey v. Wilson, 526 N.W.2d 384 (Minn. Ct. App.1995); A.E. v. J.I.E., 179 Misc. 2d 63, 686 N.Y.S.2d 613 (Sup. Ct. 1999).

CA family code specifically states that child support is to be based on the parent's income (and parenting time) -

4052.5. (a) The statewide uniform guideline, as required by federal regulations, shall apply in any case in which a child has more than two parents. The court shall apply the guideline by dividing child support obligations among the parents based on income and amount of time spent with the child by each parent, pursuant to Section 4053.

Under statutory interpretation, this would exclude any income attributable to the income of the child.

The court would need to make a determination as to which parent should have access to the adoption assistance subsidy; they may apportion it between the parents based on the timeshare, may order it to be paid for certain expenses of the child (if for example, the child has special needs, the money would be ordered to pay for those related expenses) or if it is to be held in trust for the child.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have other questions; kindly rate positively otherwise. Thank you!

How can i get the first order corrected since that portion was allocated 50 50?
Also the money was fur benjamin not Alex the older.She psid no daycare so i can ask fur it with documentation. Right?
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Typically the order will state that add on expenses (ie child care) are to be divided 50/50.

One would file a FL300 requesting modification of the child support order.

If add on expenses are not specifically addressed in the order, that can be included in the new FL300

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
considering that I've already had to pay for childcare since June of 2015 I can put that into the FL 300. Now as far as other expenses such as debt and Sport expensive but I also put that is part of the FL 300 and do I just request on that for the back pay or the back money that she owes me for the money that was part of the the custody percentage that I had. For example as of July 2015 I had my younger son full time and because she wasn't 410 she wasn't seeing my younger son I ended up having him every weekend that was agreed upon in the order. Also do I do the same thing with the child support and spousal support how do I get my money back for the difference that they goofed on with the putting the income or the adoption assistance money into the income calculations which the check approved
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

The court won't modify an order prior to the date of the filing of the FL300. So if there is a basis for reducing child support, the court will only make that order going forward- unless there is a mistake of law- such as the adoption assistance program.

Then one can request the court to modify it based on the money being counted as income.

but any proposed modification because of a change of custody/visitation will not be retroactively modified.

Let me get you a link to the child support services- they will actually assist, for a nominal fee, in child support modifications. Can I get your county please?

Thanks; a few minutes please.

Here you go; under "services" click "open a case".

They will help with modifications (and collection) of child support issues.

Did you have any other questions on the above?

do i just not deal with the attorney in this vcase and just present the modification including the fl300? Also does are aap go on the fl150?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Also if i want to use u for the community part of the case. Do i just pay again? Or can i just secure you as a resource?
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

If the other parent has an attorney, they need to receive copies of the paperwork. The Child support services attorney would see to that.

The AAP does not go on the FL150- that only deals with the parents' income, not the child's.

We aren't allowed to represent individuals as are contacts are limited to this page. I can get you a link to the state bar attorney referral page.

If you have other questions in the future and are in need of information you can request me by putting To Legal Gems in front of the question.
