- What is the legal term for a person who directly financially benefits from an attorney’s professional job duties, i.e. legal representation?
My ex-wife is having a sexual relationship with our county’s child support enforcement attorney. Daisy Blue, Chief of the State Child Support Section, stated my ex-wife is not a client and then said he represents the minor children and then in another letter said he represents the DSS agency. Then she referred me to the county for personnel matters so I’m trying to get the county personnel policy to be amended to include a provision that states, “county employees are prohibited from having sexual relationships with current clients,” to be in line with the social workers’ and attorneys’ professional Codes of Ethics but according to Ms. Blue, “clients” is not the word I should be using.
- Is child support just for “basic existence” or does it include "additional expenses, " i.e. braces, tires, class rings, lettermen jackets?
My two oldest children are a junior and senior in high school. They have been texting me to the point of almost harassment concerning “additional expenses.” My ex-wife told them that child support is only for their basic existence and that if I loved them, I would be helping with “additional expenses.” I have to work two jobs to pay my monthly bills and am on the brink of bankruptcy. I tell them that I will help them with what I can but I really can not afford additional expenses. This has really stressed the relationship between me and my children.
