Legal guardianship can be subject to legal battles https://adelman-seide.com/legal-guardianship-can-be-subject-to-legal-battles/ Wed, 10 Aug 2022 17:36:24 +0000 https://adelman-seide.com/legal-guardianship-can-be-subject-to-legal-battles/

Parental rights and privileges are not available to guardians, although they are required to perform many of the same duties as parents.


When a child needs a guardian, one of two methods is usually used. People who make wills (also called “testators”) usually appoint someone, such as next of kin, as guardian in case of incapacity or death before making other arrangements for their welfare.

  • The second option to appoint a guardian is to do so through the courts

A court can appoint a legal guardian to look after the interests of a minor, a teenager, an adult with a developmental disability or any other disabled adult. The ward of the guardian is a person supported by this guardian.

It is possible to appoint a guardian in an emergency scenario, such as when the service may be harmed if no guardian is already in place or when the presence of the guardian is required for a certain period. If both parents are sentenced to prison for a crime, they will not be allowed to care for their children until they are released. To obtain guardianship, lawyers are essential.

The court for the appointment to be formalized and for the boundaries of the guardianship to be created must approve a guardianship agreement or similar instrument. The guardian’s legal obligations should also be clearly defined in this agreement.

If there are current guardians, they must be included in the agreement, along with the ward’s parents and current guardians, if any. The child’s parents are included. In addition, the duration of the guardianship and the emergency circumstances must be included in the document. The last point should explain why the control is necessary and how it can be terminated.

  • Who can be the legal guardian of a minor?

Legal guardianship can be granted to anyone who meets the following criteria:

  • They must be over 18 years old.
  • They must be able to protect the welfare, health, personal and property interests of the service.
  • They must be able to make legal decisions on behalf of the service.

In most states, the age of majority is 18, but this can vary. Anyone can appoint a legal guardian.

  • How is legal guardianship of a child different from physical custody of a child?

Parental rights and privileges are not available to guardians, although they are required to perform many of the same duties as parents. Consequently, the appointment of a tutor does not immediately entail the forfeiture of the child’s parental rights.

Unlike a parent, a guardian can only have temporary physical custody of a child, but has no legal custody of the child in any way. When a guardian adopts a child after the parental rights of the child’s biological parents have been terminated, the guardian may be awarded legal custody in addition to physical possession of the child. Be sure to consult a good lawyer who will guide you through the process.

]]> Britney Spears’ ex Kevin Federline set to lose child support amid feud https://adelman-seide.com/britney-spears-ex-kevin-federline-set-to-lose-child-support-amid-feud/ Tue, 09 Aug 2022 21:17:09 +0000 https://adelman-seide.com/britney-spears-ex-kevin-federline-set-to-lose-child-support-amid-feud/

Britney Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline is reportedly losing child support payments he received from Spears over the next two years.

The dancer-turned-DJ has been slammed by Spears fans after revealing in an interview that their sons chose not to see the star and defended her father for placing her under a controversial 13-year conservatorship that ended l ‘last year.

Federline’s comments about his ex come as the father of six prepares to see Spears’ monthly child support payments stop when his sons turn 18 in September 2023 and 2024.

Kevin Federline has fought to increase child support for Britney Spears.

In 2018, Federline went to court and asked for an increase in monthly child support payments by $20,000. He claimed he earned less than 1% of what Spears earned and thought she should pay more when it came to their sons, Sean and Jayden.

In court papers, according to Radar Online, Federline said Spears was “one of the most recognized musical performers of our time,” having sold 80 million records worldwide.

In his statement, Federline said he worked as a DJ and music producer, telling the court he currently earns significantly less than when they reached their original child support agreement in 2008 after their divorce.

“I work as a DJ. My income this year is approximately $3,000 per month, which I earn by traveling to various entertainment venues across the country and providing musical entertainment,” Federline reportedly said in the court documents.

The committee suggested that no child is illegitimate and that the law should be the same for all children, whether born in or out of wedlock.

A parliamentary group has reportedly recommended omitting the reference to ‘illegitimate child’ from the adoption law, saying no child is illegitimate whether born in or out of wedlock.

The panel also stressed the need to enact a single comprehensive law covering aspects of guardianship of various categories of people and applicable to all, regardless of religion, sources said.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice chaired by senior BJP official Sushil Modi made the recommendation during the review of the “Guardians and Wards Act”.

The panel is likely to table its report on the “Review of Guardianship and Adoption Laws, during the ongoing monsoon session.

The committee in the report appears to have suggested that it strongly believes the word ‘illegitimate’ should be omitted as no child is illegitimate and the law should be the same for all children whether born in wedlock or out of wedlock.

The committee considers that it is necessary to amend the law on guardians and wards to give primacy to the “principle of well-being” over parental authority.

The committee also believes there is a need to define what constitutes child welfare in broader terms in the two laws, the sources said.

The amended law should also facilitate guardianship of the elderly, as there may be circumstances where an elderly person may reach a stage where health problems become overwhelming and they may need a guardian to take care of their health and of his well-being, the panel suggested. .

August is Child Support Awareness Month https://adelman-seide.com/august-is-child-support-awareness-month/ Fri, 05 Aug 2022 15:15:22 +0000 https://adelman-seide.com/august-is-child-support-awareness-month/

SIDNEY — This month, Shelby County joins counties across the country in recognizing August as Child Support Awareness Month. This is a national initiative to educate families about child support and the services available to help them. Studies have repeatedly shown that when both parents are actively involved in raising children, they do much better. If children are truly our future, then it is imperative that the child support program supports the healthy development of children, including emotional and financial support from both parents.

In addition to educating the public, the child support program touches the lives of more children and families than any other public program. In Ohio, the Child Support Program provides services to more than one million children who are served by local child support agencies in every county. Money collected from child support is estimated to reduce poverty by 25%. Alimony is the second source of income for single-parent households, providing 39% of their income on average. County child support agencies are working diligently to ensure these children receive financial support for a brighter future.

The child support program promotes responsible parenting, family autonomy and child well-being. Agencies provide services to locate parents, establish parentage, establish child support and medical support orders, collect and distribute child support, change orders when circumstances have changed, and enforce orders that do not are not paid.

County child support agencies provide services to families of all types, from divorced parents to unmarried parents, custodial parents, children in foster care and others, regardless of family income.

Last year in Shelby County, CSEA collected $10.4 million for approximately 3,800 cases and was able to collect 78% of those cases.

Support is essential for children to grow up happy and strong. Please contact your county child support agency if you have questions about child support.

Crystal Renay files for divorce from Ne-Yo, seeks child support and alimony https://adelman-seide.com/crystal-renay-files-for-divorce-from-ne-yo-seeks-child-support-and-alimony/ Fri, 05 Aug 2022 09:27:51 +0000 https://adelman-seide.com/crystal-renay-files-for-divorce-from-ne-yo-seeks-child-support-and-alimony/

Ne-Yo’s wife, Crystal Renay, filed for divorce. The decision comes days after he blasted the “So Sick” singer for constant cheating. According TMZCrystal Renay notes that Ne-Yo fathered a child with another woman.

The two wed in February 2016. Newly filed divorce papers said the marriage was “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”

The separation date is July 22 and Crystal says she has taken care of the three children they share since that date. In addition to primary physical custody and joint legal custody, Crystal is seeking child support and spousal support.

Earlier this week, Renay wrote about her husband’s infidelities on Instagram and revealed she was moving on.

“8 years. 8 years of lies and deceit,” Renay wrote. “8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and my husband with many women who sell their bodies to him without protection…until the last!

She added, “To say I am heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. Asking me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist. I will no longer lie to the public or pretend it is something it is not. I choose myself, I choose my happiness and my health and my respect.

Renay admitted gaining three beautiful children but asked everyone not to send any more videos or information highlighting Ne-Yo’s cheating. Renay also states that she is not a victim and that what the singer does “doesn’t concern me anymore”.

]]> Understanding Child Support in Orlando, Florida https://adelman-seide.com/understanding-child-support-in-orlando-florida/ Thu, 04 Aug 2022 16:54:56 +0000 https://adelman-seide.com/understanding-child-support-in-orlando-florida/

The amount of child support a person gives will be based on the most recent child support guidelines that are detailed in Florida Statute § 61.30.


Child support is an important aspect of any divorce case, and it must be done properly so that the children suffer as little as possible from the separation. Dealing with the emotional aspects of separation is hard enough, the last thing anyone needs is to have to deal with all the financial responsibilities on their own. To determine the amount of child support in Florida, the income split model is used. According to this law, the gross monthly income is used to determine the total amount of child support due. This includes everything from work income to disability benefits.

This model also takes into account other important factors such as the children’s individual needs and their original standard of living before the divorce. The main objective of child support is that the children do not see a substantial change in their quality of life, despite the fact that the parents have separated.

The amount of child support a person gives will be based on the most recent child support guidelines that are detailed in Florida Statute § 61.30. Anyone who wants to file a claim for child support should speak to a qualified attorney so they can get proper assistance in their case. It is important to keep in mind that child support is not deductible by either the payer or the recipient.

When a person makes child support payments in Florida, they must go through the Florida Disbursement Unit (FLSDU) where parents can make their payments online.

Child support is intended to cover the living expenses of the children. This means that factors such as food, clothing and housing must be covered by these payments. Again, the goal is to try to provide the children with the same standard of living as before the divorce.

Anyone not getting the help they need after their divorce should make sure they get in touch with a child support lawyer as soon as possible.
