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.

If a 17 year old goes to live with noncustodial parent will custodial parent have to pay child support if non custodial parent owes back child support?
Yes. The non-custodial parent will then be owed the support while child is in there care. But it doesnt relenquish them from their prior debt.. If the monies is owed direct t…o you and not a child supporting agency you can come to an agreement with the other party to resolve the debt and have it entered into a court agreement.
If the custodial parent lives in a different state then the noncustodial parent which state determines child support?
The State in which the child resides.
See Link Below Child Support Age-At what age does child support stop and what steps need to be taken to bring this about?
If a child leaves their home to live with the noncustodial parent is the custodial parent responsible for child support payments?
No, the parent whom the child began residing would need to file for custody and also support before the original custodial parent would be obligated. However there would be n…o guarantee that a court would grant the motion.
The child can't refuse, they are too young to decide for themselves. It's the parents job to make them go and the custodial parent have to follow the court order. If not he/sh…e will get into legal trouble because they will be reported to the court for not following the courts orders. It's better to work together even if you don't get along as parents because getting picked up by the police and taken from the home to the other one is unnecessary and traumatic for the child. As responsible adults you can prevent this and follow the agreement.
The child has a right to see the parent if she wishes. The wishes of the child should be of paramount importance. Unless there are certain court orders in place (restraining o…rder, protection from abuse order, divorce decree or Parental Rights and Responsibilities) or if the noncustodial parent has a criminal record for a sexual offense, the noncustodial parent does have rights. However the things they do should be with consideration for the child and custodial parent in mind. Unless they have been determined to be unfit the non-custodial parent has the right to request a visitation order from the court with jurisdiction over the case. Once the visitation order has been established the non-custodial parent has the right to enforce that visitation order, exactly as stated in the order, unless it is modified by the court. The non-custodial parent has the right to be informed about important aspects of the child's life such as medical conditions and treatments, school attendance and school functions, sports programs, etc.
No they can not. The key here is the "custodial parent" . You may be able to go to court. But if you keep the child and you are not the custodial parent and there is a c…ourt order saying the other parent is the custodial parent, all that person has to do is call the police, and the non custodial parent would have to give up the child.
They recently changed the laws of custody, No one parent has full custody UNLESS they see the other parent as unstable and unfit. If the parent you want to live with has bee…n deemed unfit as a parent then it will have to be taken to court or you can contact certain child organizations to give you more details about how to leave your current home and return to the home of an "unfit parent" However if one parent obtained full custody of the child and the other parent was not deemed unfit as a parent, you may still live with them because of the recent change in custody laws, stating no one parent can have full or primary custody. (in other words, if your mom has full custody and your dad has none ((Also assuming the father hasn't been charged with being a drug addict, alcoholic, or financially unstable etc.)) you may live with the father)
No, there are no laws in the US that addresses this requirement.
What happens to the custodial parent if the child refuses to visit the noncustodial parent in Texas?
Contempt of court if the non-custodial parent pushes the issue. That can lead to fines, jail time or even custody modification depending on if the contempt becomes chronic. …Texas law is unique in that the wishes of the child must be taken into consideration by the court if the child is 12 or older. If the child doesn't want to visit the non-custodial, he or she can request a meeting with the judge to express their wishes and reasons. By law, the judge must honor such a request. Under age 12, it is up to the judge whether such a meeting takes place, but the child still has the right to write to the judge expressing their wishes and rationale. The judge will take the child's wishes under advisement, the validity and rationale behind them and weigh them against what damage may be inflicted upon the child by not having visitation with the other parent, and rule in favor of what he or she feels is in the child's best interests.
When a noncustodial parent is ordered to pay unreimbursed medical expenses and both parents have insurance coverage for the child how can you prove the custodial parent has coverage when she denies it?
Answer The attorney representing the non-custodial parent can serve the custodial parent with a interogatory summons requesting proof of insurance or the la…ck thereof. If the parent wishing such information does not have legal representation, he or she may wish to contact the clerk of the circuit court in the county where the action is to take place for information. Please be advised court clerks cannot give legal advice nor comment on individual cases, they can only impart general information concerning court procedures.
You need to check your state child support guidelines.
If CUSTODIAL parent gets married does the noncustodial parent still have to pay child support in the state of NC?
When only separated does the noncustodial parent have to pay a certain amount of money or pay any child support.. If not can custodial parent file for arrearages in divorce?
The absent parent will be ordered to pay support, regardless of the nature of the absence. Do not pay without a court order. If necessary, file a voluntar…y order. Note though, if there's any question about paternity, it needs to be clarified first as once you begin paying, you cannot stop later, regardless of paternity, in most states, and even if she remarries to the bio dad. There are clinic where you can take the child for testing, and the mother's permission is not required. There are also test kits you can buy, but they take longer to get results. It's better to learn now than later, plus is now or later you challenge for custody, she is allowed to use it against you to stop the challenge. see links below You're married and separated and someone is telling you to stop providing support for your children? On what planet does a parent not have to support their child unless there's a court order? You should be thinking of preserving some sort of stability for your children. They are suffering enough with their parents separation. It is unconscionable to compound the situation by suddenly withdrawing your financial support. The mortgage or rent still must be paid to keep a roof over their heads. They still must eat and be warm. Provide what you can and pay by check so you have proof of all your payments.
No, child support is calculated based on physical custody, which is different than visitation time. If you are not receiving your court-ordered visitation, contact your local …Department of Human Services and let them know. However, you must still pay your court-ordered child support.
Does noncustodial parent have to pay a medical bill if he carries coverage for the child and the custodial parent chose to take the child to a dr that was not in network?
You are parents. Discuss the matter. Possibly the best care was out of network, so do not jump to conclusions without verifying the reason the child was taken there. Perhaps y…ou could ask for the difference of network vs out of network.
Does the noncustodial parent still have to pay child support if the child is living with him in TEXAS?
If the arrangement is with the consent of the custodial parent and will be permanent then the custody and child support orders must be modified to reflect the change in legal …custody. The parent in Texas needs to have their custody formalized by a court order so they can enroll the child in school, consent to medical treatment, etc. If the child support order is not modified the non-custodial parent may be subject to the accumulation of child support arrears.
