QUESTIONS

  • My ex is supposed to pay court ordered child support and has not done so for a little over 19 months. Am I supposed to file paperwork to have it on the record, or does the state automatically know that he owes me back child support? I don't even know if he is working currently.
  • Purchased 2 timeshares in late 90's, which worked well for family at the time and both are paid off in full and current with fees. Life changes, health changes, it no longer works. Have researched to find possible resolution to cancel/terminate contract and have found nothing but SCAMS! Granted, it wasn't the brightest idea to purchase but let's claim it a "lesson learned". I now am trying to educate myself on the law and it's been pretty difficult finding answers and people I can trust or those who do "timeshares". Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
