Does this sound familiar? You and the mother of your child have attempted to co-parent, but then-an argument erupts and communication between you and she terminates. You call mom asking for a visit with our son/daughter--with no reply by phone call or text message?
A few weeks pass with this behavior continuing, and no response from mom. Then, one day out of the blue a Deputy Sheriff knocks on your door with a "Petition for Child Support/Paternity".
The following likely occurs:
Your next response should be, "take a deep breath" and then, call HOLMES LA LAW, LLC.
Child Support suits are not necessarily a means for the CP (custodial parent) to simply seek vengeance against the NCP (non-custodial parent). The State of Louisiana provides relief for the recovery of any monetary obligations if a CP is receiving State Aid--in the form of TANF, Food Stamps or even Medicaid. As such, when the CP begins an application for these services, the next step for reconvention to get the lost money is to seek a judgment of support against one or both parents.
