Military Deployment vs Child Support Court Hearing


#1

He can request a continuance if he is deployed overseas, it will be granted under the Soldier and Sailors relief act. If he is deployed there will a certain amount of support the military requires him to pay you, the amount will depend on the branch of the military. He can choose not to request a continuance if he doesn’t want to.

Just wanted to come back and say Thanks You for reploying… My ex husband deployed at 4am this morning… His attorney asked for the extension on Friday of last weekend stating that the X was deploying and wanted to be present for the hearing. I was sitting on the beach when I got a phone call from my attorney telling me to get ready for court, and they heard us THAT DAY! Since child support is just a matter of figures the judge didnt let my slimy ex husband wiggle out of this one again (he has a track record of extesions) I’m so happy! They went off my old income (I’m reccently unemployed due to my child becoming ill, and my position being replaceable) but I dont care… I’m getting $650 a month and it’s a temp order until he returns and income can be reevaluated (since I havent been able to find a job with such high pay) But… YAY for me!

Question… I was divorced in March, the divorce was rushed and the judge left issues of child support and custody open for further hearing. I FINALLY got a court date for a child support order (Aug 16th) and am now finding out my X is deploying for Iraq prior to our court date. Does this mean I have to wait to have my case heard, seeing that he will not be present? He has an attorney, and to my knowledge signed a waiver of appearance.

I am going through CSEA and no one seems to give me a clear answer on my concern… Since CSEA doesnt allow an attorney/client relation I cant ask my attorny… I reccently lost my job when my child took ill, and I cant afford to postpone my court dates. Any idea if I will go to court on Aug 16th and find it’s been continued until he comes home?
