TO ALLOW RELIEF FROM A CHILD SUPPORT ORDER WHEN THE OBLIGOR IS NOT THE CHILD'S FATHER.
House amendment makes the following changes to 2nd edition, as amended.
Provides that the provisions of proposed GS 50-13.13 apply to a motion or claim (was, applied to a motion). Amends proposed GS 50-13.13 to also include among those individuals who may file a motion or claim for relief from a child support order as provided in this statute, the father of a child who is required to pay child support under an agreement between the parties under GS 52-10.1 or otherwise, that is subject to modification by a North Carolina court. Directs that a motion or claim for relief under the proposed statute may also be filed as an independent civil action (was, only filed as a motion in the cause in the pending child support action).
Makes conforming changes specifying that the act applies to motions or claims for relief filed on or after the effective date, January 1, 2012, and any person otherwise eligible to file a motion or claim may file a motion or claim under the act before January 1, 2013, regardless of the one year discovery rule.
