My question involves child support in the State of: NJ
Daughter-in-law's baby-daddy moved out 3 weeks ago to move in with another woman. (They are not married). Since then he has given her 1 box of pull-ups and $150.00 & has visited his child 1x for a total of 30 minutes. (Pittance since he makes $1,000 a week). She has the paperwork to fill out for child support since it looks like he will not be paying anything willingly. (He never gave her his paycheck while living there-she had to pull teeth to get any money from him for bills).
Another problem is she re-mortgaged the house [previously in her name only] a couple of years ago to pay off some of his credit cards putting his name on mortgage and deed. (Yes I know - STUPID). But, since they are not married I know she can't add any of the house mortgage in towards the child support. Correct?
But, she would like to get his name off of the house. The house is now worth less than what it is mortgaged for - so there is no equity in it for him. And she can readily show that she has paid all of the mortgage payments. There has never been any joint accounts. Would there be a possibility of going to court to have her be able to refi on her own without having to pay him anything to have him sign off? If so, which court?
Final question. He has alot of tools and junk stored at the house. He was a picker on the weekends so there is alot of hazardous stuff in the backyard that she would like to clean up and trash in a dumpster. Is there a time limit before she can trash or sell it? If he isn't going to pay his share for the mortgage she could sell some of the tools & trailer to make up some of the money. But she doesn't want to do that without proper notice or time. Can she tell him that he has a certain time frame to get his stuff out by and then start cleaning up and/or selling it? (She's not going to be a storage facility for him as she knows his new "girlfriend" doesn't have property at her house for this stuff so he's going to make excuses to delay it).
Thanks for all your help
