Does the noncustodial parent have to pay child support if the custodial parent makes more money than the noncustodial parent?
The income difference between both parents are irrelevant when it is in reference to child support. There is, in most family courts, a calculation based on the total cost to raise a child. Most states can only take up to or about 10-20% of a persons income but that is just a baseline and other factors such as cost of living for the individual paying the child support can greatly affect the payout to the other parent.
