Backdating child support
In some cases grandparents or relatives who have taken on responsibility of caring for a child can be determined to be the principal carer where the person with legal responsibility is unable or unwilling to care the child.You may remain the principal carer of a child during a temporary absence from the child, e.g.Cornejo, who insists never knew about the girl, set out to meet the now 16-year-old.The Houston dad, who described the teen as a 'wonderful girl' who was 'very smart' with a 'lot going on for herself', decided to have a DNA test at the urging of his wife Esmeralda Cornejo, and his ex.The email from him is a Dear Jane letter (dated just a week and a half ago), explaining that he doesn't know how to be a husband and has failed in our marriage and since he's been gone for 7 months, it's a good time for us to split up since we have not seen or been together since his departure. I would consult an attorney about it before putting it into ink.
When determining child support payments in Florida, the court may order retroactive child support payments for the time between the date the parents separated and the date the child support order went into effect.
Gabriel Cornejo, of Cypress, Texas, a father-of-three who is also raising two of his brother's children, says he only found out his ex claimed he was the father of her 16-year-old girl, last year.
But even after a paternity test proved he wasn't the father, Cornejo is still being held liable for unpaid child support because a court says he did not contest the paternity suit when his former girlfriend first submitted it in 2003.
This will usually be the mother of a newborn child or the initial primary carer of an adopted child.
There can only be one primary carer for a child at one time.
