Child Support - Baby-sitting & Childcare

Do I have to pay the “child support” I pay directly to daycare to my ex if they get pulled out?

Do I have to pay the “child support” I pay directly to daycare to my ex if they get pulled out?
In our papers it states under the child support heading that I pay 550 a month directly to daycare. He and his new wife want to pull the kids out of daycare because she is quitting her job. So, he wants me to pay her the 550. I know it falls under the child support heading, but it states that I pay directly to daycare so do I have a leg to stand on? Also, we are joint managing conservators so we have to agree to changes in their education, so don’t I have to agree to pull them out of their daycares?

You don’t have to pay the money to him and the new wife unless they go to court and the court orders it. The order was directly to day care. In fact, I’d call the court and see if I needed to schedule a hearing date to get ahead of their tricks and make sure they understand that you have to agree to any educational changes.
Good luck.

you should have some say so in the matter, it’s not fair that she sit on her @ss all day, and be a mother to u r kids, and u have to pay that much money, i think you should take this back to court..

Answer by lillllbit
If I were you, I’d keep paying the daycare and let THEM pay the legal bills that’ll be associated with getting it changed! I don’t know if daycare qualifies as education though…I wouldn’t pay the money directly to them as it might be considered an “informal payment” (your child support order probably specifies this)…FYI, informal payments usually don’t count as child support….

What exactly is “back child support”?

What exactly is “back child support”?
I have a 3 1/2 year old son whose father hasn’t been an active part of his life since he was 9 months old. He has not paid a dime or bought him anything since that time either. He seems him one time every few months “when he has time”. Just curious if when we went to court if he would owe me any money for the past 3 years. We live in Maryland if that makes any difference. We have had a court case since my son was a year old and we still have yet to go to court.
like i said we have a case. There is just no court order yet and we have not yet had a court date set. Does this make a difference?
the court already ordered a DNA test that we have already had done and he is 99.97% my sons father. I know who the father is. Although he actually asked where the 7 came from.

No he wouldn’t owe you for the last three years. In order for anyone to owe you child support it has to be set in a court or by Division of Child Support Enforcement. Once a motion is filed by you, that’s the date he would start owing support (unless he orders a paternity test and it comes back as not his- that’s the only way he could get out of it).
If it hasn’t been heard, it’s not an order. I suggest you refile if you want any type of support.
Back support is like when a man/woman is ordered to pay child support and it doesn’t get paid, they get behind, thus owing “back support” and they can suspend your license to drive if it gets too out of hand.

Sounds like you need a lawyer and back to court a.s.a.p. Yes , he owes all back child support . ALL !!! In your case 3 1/2 years .

Answer by Kathi S
Child support only goes back to the date the court ordered it to start. You should have filed for it when the child was born or at least when you saw the father was a looser.

I never got a lawyer and I filed with the division of child support awhile after I had my son. They sent both me & the father paperwork to fill out and once returned they determined the amount of support I would get based on incomes. Anyways no court room, no lawyers, and I automatically got back support ordered. You don’t get it all at once but they will take a little extra each check until he is caught up. Good luck to you.

Answer by Ranger4402
You need to hire an attorney. Hire one. This is not a complicated case. Either than man is your son’s father or he is not. If he is your son’s father then he owes money.

Answer by George McCasland
Back or retroactive child support can be ordered for up to 18 years prior to the filing of the order. In most states the limit is five years, while a few don’t allow any, and others allow more. In Ohio, the mother can file any time before the child turns age 23, for 18 years retroactive or back support, on a man who never knew he had a child.

Has anyone used “National Child Support” to get back child support?

Has anyone used “National Child Support” to get back child support?
My ex owes over $ 36,000 in back child support. I filed through the state and it has been a very slow process (it took 2 years to get an order and there has been an order for a little over 2 years now and he hasn’t been paying). I heard about Nation Child Support and can’t find any reviews on it. Has anyone used them? Thanks!
I saw where they take 34% but right now and for the past 6 years I’ve received a total of $ 3,000 for our daughter. I figured some was better than none but didn’t know if they were just a scam. We don’t have the funds for a lawyer unfortunately.

Answer by Bella
They will take 1/3 of what you are owed as a fee, as will similar “collection” agencies. You’re better off hiring a lawyer or just waiting if you can.

“We charge a flat 34 percent commission on each payment collected. Remember, most states allow you, the custodial parent, to add interest to your uncollected balance. This added interest can cover a large portion of our fee.”

Answer by Valerie X Account #18….YES!
I’m in the same boat.

My ex owes us over 44K ….yes, that is 44 THOUSAND dollars…..

Good luck to you, My Dear……
