Child Support Issues in Inglewood CA
Inglewood, when compared to peer cities, has a higher number of people per household combined with a lower number of marriages (http://www.citytowninfo.com/places/california/inglewood). When families have children and are not married they may need to file a ‘paternity action’ in the Family Court to establish the father and address custody, visitation and support for children.
Either parent may choose to file the Petition to Establish Parental Relationship, (‘paternity action’) due to a break-up in the family. In this case, either parent may want to settle custody, visitation and support for the children legally. However, if a parent only wants child support, he/she may go to Child Support Services and file a support claim. By doing this, Child Support Services then takes the responsibility to locate the other parent and get the child support. If the parent, who is caring for the children, is on public assistance, then Child Support Services will reimburse the Welfare Office for the monies paid to said parent.
It’s important to note that ‘paternity actions’, for the most part, solve the problems associated with verbal agreements which are not followed. Once the court has made a ruling, the parents are obligated to follow the ruling or risk further action.
Legal Action Workshop offers a low cost way to address ‘paternity actions’ as well as other actions such as Requests for Order which change existing court orders for a variety of reasons. An example of this would be when a person gets or loses a job and now the child support order needs to be adjusted.
