Legal Answers
Q. How can I file a Discovery for my wife's bank and credit card records?
A: You can file a Motion to Compel ad the Judge can order her to disclose these documents or you can subpoena the documents yourself. Good Luck.
Q. my child receives ssi will the father still be responsible to pay child support
A: It depends. If the child receives SSI on his own disability, child support would be under the guidelines and the SSI payment would not be income. If the child receives SSI on the Father's disability, then 1) if the amount is more than what the guidelines would require the Father to pay, then the Father would not pay. 2) if the amount is less than what the guidelines require the Father to pay, the child support would be reduced by the SSI. 3) the judge has the discretion to adjust the child support to a different amount if the custodial parent receives SSI on the Father's disability. Good luck.
