Thread: legal advice

    legal advice

    Not sure if this is the best place to ask but here I go.
    I want to know if anyone knows were in the court house I go to get a judgement on child support .
    I pay child support to my ex wife and I find that is the right thing to do for the child... the problem is he is not a child anymore.. he is 19.. he does not even live with her anymore he lives in ontario with his uncle and is working. I call the govenment on this and they say I need a judgement to get the payments stopped. My lawyer I had for the divorce said it will be between 1000 and 1500 for this. I find that a lot. Is there anyway I can go to the court house and get this done by myself. thanking everyone in advance if they can help.

    You can do it yourself but you really need to inform yourself about the procedure. you need to file a Motion to cancel the support and serve it on your ex wife with a Notice of presentation as to what day you want to go to Court. you may find all of this overwhelming. do you qualify for legal aid?

    Just one thing to point out: Marriage is a shit deal for men. See escorts and stay clear of marriage. Child support for 26 years? You got to be fucking kidding me?

    The best person on this board to offer legal advice in regards to your question would be Eagerbeaver.

    However, he's currently serving a suspension, so he won't be able to answer until it ends & if he decides to start posting again.

    On another note, while it is true (in my opinion) that marriage can be a raw deal for many men, there are exceptions. Some men find marriage great, and good for them that they've found a caring and supportive partner to make their marriages work. It's also true that marriage can be a so-called 'shitty' deal for many women also. Many women unfortunately are often abused & treated like crap in their respective marriages. Many do not see a way out, and many that want to are facing threats of violence & retaliation for their dead-beat husbands.

    While some see escorting as an option to marriage, let's not forget that some guys (expecially many on boards like this one) spend their entire savings on escorts. Many lose control and become addicted to easy sex. Easy, but expensive. I've met guys that have spent a fortune on escorts over their lifetime.....$100 000-$1 million. So to them i'd ask: is marriage that bad?

    p.s. From what i've seen over my life, people are often too quick to get married. Many who get married at a young age wind up in bad marriages. I don't see anything wrong with someone who's lived a good life as a single person finally coming to the conclusion at some point in their lives that they're ready to make a full commitment to marriage, since they're in a better position to know what they want out of life.

    Child support is only made to revenue Canada if payments are in default. Second most lawyers are not needed ( many are money hungry scum ), take your time and try and do it yourself if possible. Check out what Sidney says and skip the rest.
    I do not think outside the box, I do not think inside the box, I do not even know where the box is.

    I just lost my job. Do I still have to pay child support?

    As a general rule, you still have to pay child support

    because this is what the court decision says. Revenu Québec will continue to collect child support, even if it is notified of your situation.[/QUOTE]


    How the fuck are you supposed to pay child support if you lost your job? I know a guy that lost his job and his ex in NY was able to have his drivers license suspended and yes the kid is over 18. His ex was injured in an accident and won a 3MM settlement and is just doing this for spite.

    I just had lunch with a friend who told me that child support was like paying off a mortgage for 500,000$ home that he never got to live in!

    Avoid Marriage. When you have sex, wrap it up! Don't worry, bums on welfare that have 9 different kids with 6 different woman, guys that don't like to wear a condom because "it doesn't feel good" will ensure that the word is populated.

    I understand that once a child turns 18, child support can be paid directly to the child if the child does not live with the spouse receiving the support. Has anyone had experience with this? Does the ex (receiving the support) have to give consent, or is the child's testimony and signature enough?

    Child support can also be paid to a hit man

    If he is over 18 and is not a full time student then you do not need to pay child support anymore.
    Stay thirsty my friends

    If guys can spend 100k to 1+ million on the "hobby", then their net worth must be more than that. Don't forget, in a divorce, a man loses half of his assets. I agree that if a marriages works out, it's the best thing in the world. However, what's the percentage of marriages the end up happy in the long term? When you live with someone for an extended period of time, their true selves come out. We wear masks....eventually we take them off. That goes for husbands and wives.

    Most guys don't get sex from the wifey after a while. That's why the hobby exists!

    A man 'may' lose half of his assets. I know many divorced guys who never lost a penny. Some of them even made some money from divorce.

    No - in a divorce, the marital assets (family patrimony and partnership of acquests) are split 50/50. If a man are married, marital assets don't belong to the husband, he only has a 50% interest in them. Upon divorce, the husband gets his half - he doesn't "lose" the other half because it was never his.

    I hope you are a good fighter. Tell that to the guy who has just gotten a divorce and who earned 90 percent of the family's income during the marriage and he is going to punch you.

    Even if he earned 100% of the family income, while he is married it is not "his". It is not the divorce that causes him to lose the assets, it is the marriage. And if some neanderthal idiot proposes to resort to violence to compensate for his absence of logic and reasoning skills he would be well advised to have a high tolerance for pain.

    Child support applies any time one sires a child. There is no requirement to have been married or even to have been a couple. The issue often arises on divorce, but it's actually a separate issue. If you father a child from a casual relationship, a one-night stand, or even an encounter with a prostitute, you are responsible for that child's expenses.
