Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry to hear about that. Is there currently a child support agreement on file with the courts or is it informal?

Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I see what you mean. Well, until she is able to prove that you are the father and until she gets a court order, then she can't legally demand that you pay any money.

Ask Your Own Family Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
what about the house part?
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

She can't take your house from you at all; only a court could order that you pay and they only usually will require that you pay from your pay checks.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
you see i am mexican and i am a immigration and she want me to get deported so she can take the house and told me she going to write a letter so I can get deported
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
she dont care if her child father is in her life or not
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I understand and I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Have you considered a restraining order against her for these actions?

is in the baby life
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
but how if we have a son togther?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
she had stuff they she left in the house still should i pack them up and put them in the garage so she dont come into the house to get them? once time we broke up before and she start hitting me and broking stuff in the house and she bring her friend with her and her friend block the door so i will not get out and when i call the police the friend told the cop i push her and i end up going to jail
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i am sorry she have stuff
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Okay, so if you are tired of her threats, you have a few options:

1. You may want to consider just writing a cease and desist letter. Lawyers use letters like these often to enforce their client’s rights. Here’s a website that has a good template (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation. This is just an informal document, but you could explain that if she continues, then you may bring a restraining order against her.

2. You could file a restraining order against her. Your state court has forms available where you can get a judge to order her to stop threatening you with deportation, stop threatening you with child support, and to stop threatening to take your home.

3. You could also and probably also should file to get a custody order. Your immigration status is irrelevant. If you're the presumed father, the court may be able to set up an order that establishes when you get access to the child and how much you have to pay in child support.

Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry. What I mean is that you should probably go get a custody order from the court. The court can decide not only when you will see the child, but also how much in child support you will pay. If you do this, then she cannot withhold the child from you or make you pay more money.

Ask Your Own Family Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Yeah I went to support on my own and I am waiting to take the dna test and so I can get the child every two weeks and she been making me keep him for two weeks and I can’t afford to miss work
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I can understand. If you petition the court to establish custody, you can typically also ask the court for a DNA test at the same time. It'll be up to the court to grant it if they have reason to believe that you may or may not be the father of the child. Regardless, it may be a smart way to ensure that you can no longer be harassed about more child support and will not be blocked from the child.

Did you have any other questions for me?

aslo far as the child she not asking for child support, my problem is she will not take me to child support for some reason but she rather take my house and moneyBut I went to child support so I can put my self on there
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Do you think it will affect the child if I get a restraining order on her?
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I understand. She can't take your house at all. The most that she can even get from you is enough to care for the child. Your house and your assets are safe.

I give her money for the child but she don’t spend it on him
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry to hear about that. If you have proof that she is not using the child support to care for the child, then you could request a court intervene for you if you'd like.

What should I do far as the child because I don’t trust her with money
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am not on child support
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
She won’t take me , I give her money by hand
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Ok, I think I understand. So, correct me if I'm wrong. You don't currently have court-ordered child support? You're just doing informally?

Ask Your Own Family Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
correct , I went to child support on my own because she is getting out of hand with keep asking me for money and making me keep him for two weekend when I want to get the child every two week
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Every weekend she want me to get the child so she can go out to party but her mother always have the child and not her and she the only person who has custody of the baby
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Ok, you need to ask the court to make an order that specifies your child support obligation. The child support office only enforces the orders made by the court. They can't help you if you are paying child support privately.

Two more question . She still have stuff on the house should I pack it in but it in the garage so she don’t have not reason to come into the house ?
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Yes, I would recommend moving it to somewhere safe to store it, even if it is a separate storage facility or a friend's house to keep her from coming to the home for that stuff. What other questions did you have?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
What your opinion on this whole situation?
Family Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

My legal opinion is that you should consider a restraining order, but definitely file a petition in your court asking for custody and for them to establish a child support order.
