Current Events & Hot Topics Current Events & Hot Topics
The ex saga continues.

Opposing counsel threw together a limited appearance response to our petetion 3 days late to avoid a default order.

He stated they are appealing the judges ruling as soon as the order is entered by the court, and asked for a stay of proceedings.

Opposing counsel said that the respondent is open to settling in lieu of paying monthly child support and putting her on his insurance.

I put together a settlement offer, and the total is just over $175,000.

The breakdown includes:

1/2 of her portion of our primary and supplemental insurance premiums for 10 years. Not including co pay and prescription costs.

1/2 of extracurricular activities (minus her study abroad program in Spain) until she graduates high school.

1/2 of tuition and fees, books and room and board for a 4 year college degree (using usu fees as a guideline)

$1,000/month/10 year lump sum for child support (which will knock off over 14k of what he will be ordered to pay for cs and back cs)

College expenses are included because he has gotten a free ride for 10 years, so far.

What a mess. I am sorry you are going through this. I hope it all works out. For the record? No, I don't think you are being unreasonable. 

Quoting Jack_Squat:

The judge declared that 4 years of back cs will be ordered in the initial cs order, but we can't get to the point where we have a cs order. Heres what happened:

We filed for cs
He filed for motion of dismissal based on lack of personal jurisdiction
Judge denied his motion to dismiss and had texas relinquish jurisdiction to his district in utah so we can move foreward with the cs order
My x is filing an appeal and has filed for a stay of proceedings for until the appeal is over



Quoting DestinyHLewis:


So you are asking for CS that wasn't originally ordered, to be back payed in addition to future? Why wasn't he paying CS to begin with? 


Quoting Jack_Squat:

Arrears os when court ordered cs is behind.





Back cs is part of the initial cs order, and added to current and future payments until it's paid.





Quoting DestinyHLewis:


? What is the difference. I honestly do not know. To me back support means they haven't paid. So does arrears? 



Quoting Jack_Squat:

He isn't in arrears. Arrears is differet than back cs.








Quoting DestinyHLewis:

The only thing that stood out here is that child support was in arrears. Why?

 After you wrote about not having a CS order, I understood what you meant.

Quoting Jack_Squat:

It's different.

Back cs is ordered at the time of the initial order.

Being in arrears means that the parent is behind on their court ordered cs.

We don't have a court order yet. We have been trying to get one since 2004.


Quoting Della529:

 "Back child support" is an arrearage.  Arrears means being behind in payments.


But wait, didn't you write that there is no court order?


Quoting Jack_Squat:

He isn't in arrears. Arrears is different than back cs.
