Legal Answers
Q. Can a landlord enter my home if I am not home
A: Yes. But only upon reasonable notice, which is usually outlined in the lease, or in an emergency circumstance.
Q. Will I still pay child support for a child if I have joint custody with my wife and I pay all the child's daycare cost?
A: Maybe. Child support is calculated based on the income of the parties, custody time, and other contributing factors such as insurance, daycare, maintenance, etc. These are applied to child the support guidelines to determine who pays how much to the other parent. Once you petition the court for divorce/custody/child support/etc., these figures can be determined by your attorney or the court. That said, you would be wise to hire an attorney to assist you through the process.
Q. What would be the appropriate steps to take and would I have any options?
A: You would need to pursue a motion to modify the current court orders and satisfy the standards for doing so as well as recalculating the child support based on the guidelines. This is not an easy process. Although some counties have forms available online, you would be wise to consult local counsel to determine your best options.
