|Abuse, Stalking & Financial Issues||
The information on this page is to help if you have financial problems because of someone who is abusing or stalking you. When we use the word “abuser,” we mean anyone who abuses you or stalks you. All of the actions we suggest below should be part of your safety plan. When you are thinking about taking an action to protect your finances, you should also think about and make plans to protect yourself from actions your abuser may take. A lawyer or someone from your local domestic violence organization may be able to help you make a safe decision.
|Parentage (For Unmarried Parents)||When parents aren’t married and decide to split up, a Parentage case asks the Court to decide parental rights and responsibilities (custody), parent-child contact (visitation) and child support. If you and your child’s other parent don’t agree about issues affecting your child, it may be easier and better to have a Court order that says where the child will live and how long the child will visit the other parent. If you have a child support order in place, you can ask the Court for help if the other parent doesn’t pay.|
