Re: more detail on what happens in the courtroom

A Child Support Hearing Examiner will decide your case. Hearing Examiners are like judges. They have the power to decide your case. They are different from a Judge in that they only decide child support cases. If you are not satisfied with the Hearing Examiner's decision, you can ask a judge to revi...

Re: So how does this all work in the court system?

The parents must give the court their most recent tax returns. They must file pay stubs and tell what they earn and spend. The court will usually ask for proof of the expenses, such as for food, rent, clothing, medical costs, child care, and education. The court will listen to all of the evidence fr...

Re: what if my ex is a no-show?

As long as the non-custodial parent has been served, the court can enter a child support order. If you have the non-custodial parent's financial information, the order can be entered based on that. If you do not have their information, the order will be based on the needs of the child or children, s...

Re: I'm getting remarried!!

Hey Jasmine,

Re-marriage almost never affects the amount of child support owed. The Hearing Examiner will not consider the income of the non-custodial parent's spouse when calculating the amount of child support the non-custodial parent has to pay according to the CSSA.

Re: length of child support

Hi Momwith4, So under most state laws, you pay child support until the child turns 18, or 19 if the child is unmarried and still attending high school full time. Under special circumstances, the court may order child support to continue after the child is an adult. If past-due support (called arrear...

Re: privacy

Child support case information is confidential and not open to the public. However, all documents in court files or county recorder files are public records and can be viewed by the general public.

Re: improper child support spending

Again Gerry, this type of conduct should be reported immediately to the judge or to court officials. As mentioned in my answer to your previous question, child support is intended solely for the benefit of the child. Violations of child support laws can result in legal consequences, such as a loss o...

Re: past due support

Past due support refers to child support payments that have been missed or skipped. The court will usually keep track of any amounts that are missing or owed. Over time, these may accumulate, but the paying parent will still be legally obligated to pay them. As such, some non-custodial parents may a...
