I stay in the state of Florida. I have two child support cases that were closed. I called the clerk of courts and they stated that both cases were accessed this month even though they were closed in December 2013. Two questions: What does it mean by the cases were accessed? and Does it mean that the arrears on the cs case have been erased because case was closed?

This response is not intended to create an attorney-client

relationship.

 

Deputy Court Clerks are NOT attorneys. They have NOT been

admitted in their State to practice law. They may know alot 

of information informally but are only providing the safe answer

when a person is told "you should consult with an attorney"

in response to most "How do I do this? ...." kind of questions.  

I do realize we are in a DIY world and almost everybody

mistakenly thinks that representing oneself in a Court case

is always easy (which it really isn't).

When the clerk told you what he/she told you and you didn't understand what you were being told, why didn't you say, "I'm sorry, but what does it mean. . . ?"  Asking complete strangers to explain what some unknown person told you doesn't make much sense.

pg1067 I did ask what does that mean and the response was that payments were suppose to made but were not. It did not make sense to me. I believe this site is for legal advice not smarta#% remarks from you everytime a question is asked. If you cannot give legal advice to anyone on this site please have a seat. I like many others are trying to handle things on our own and are asking for help.

That is fine for to get general information. No one needs the negativity. That one subscriber most of the time writes negative things on most of the posts that I see. We are trying to get information shal I say instead of the legal advicr. My mistake.

Since you're very intelligent,  

 

Get a copy of all applicable Court Orders.

The Clerk may charge you for photocopies.

- not everything is free. 

 

+ get support printouts from the inception of the first support

order until legal age of emancipation. The Clerk may charge you

money for the printouts - not everything is free.

 

You may need to have a picture ID to get the docs.

 

+ get calendars for each year (so you know whether there 

were 52 or 53 weeks in each applicable year).

 

Count the total # of weeks involved.

 

Buy a calculator to add up the support paid in

through the Court system.

 

Start calculating the extent of your net arrears, if any. 

 

Hopefully, you didn't make direct payments

to the recipient.

Not so.  This site's terms of service prohibit giving legal advice and, in any event, your question didn't call for legal advice.  Rather, your question called for an interpretation of something someone else told you.

 

 

 

not smarta#% remarks from you everytime a question is asked.

 

There is nothing "smart a-s-s" about my prior response.  My respone was completely practical.  How should we know what some person who is completely unknown to us meant?  With that said, to "access" a court file generally means to pull and review it.  Again, if you don't understand something that someone tells you, ask for an explanation and keep asking until you get a response you understand.
