Q) I have recently got custody of my 2 kid and one that is not mine all from the same mother how do I file child support and what do I need?
A) Congratulations on getting custody of your children! It is important to file for child support so that the other parent can help contribute to the cost of raising your children. Here are the steps on how to file for child support:
- Contact your local child support enforcement agency. They can help you with the process of filing for child support.
- Gather your documentation. This will include things like your children’s birth certificates, your income information, and the other parent’s income information.
- Complete the child support application. The application will ask for information about you, the other parent, and your children.
- Submit the application to your local child support enforcement agency.
Once you have filed for child support, the agency will work with you to establish a child support order. The order will set out the amount of child support that the other parent must pay, how often the payments must be made, and how the payments will be enforced.
If you have any questions about the child support process, please contact your local child support enforcement agency. They can provide you with more information and help you through the process.
Here are some additional things you will need to file for child support:
- A copy of your driver’s license or state ID
- A copy of your Social Security card
- A copy of your children’s birth certificates
- The other parent’s name, address, and Social Security number
- The other parent’s employer’s name, address, and phone number
- Any other information that may be relevant to your case, such as your children’s medical expenses or daycare costs
It is important to note that the amount of child support you receive will vary depending on your income and the other parent’s income. The child support enforcement agency will use a formula to calculate the amount of child support that is fair to both parents.
If you are having trouble paying your child support, you should contact your local child support enforcement agency. They may be able to help you create a payment plan or reduce the amount of child support you owe.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
