What would you like to do?
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.

what if the noncustodial parent still reside with the custodial parent, is noncustodial parent still obligated to pay childsupport
Alimony to the non-custodial parent may still be ordered; depends on the circumstances. Child support payments are based on both the needs of the child and the ability of th…e parent to provide them.
If a custodial parent moves out of state for more than 30 days and leaves her 16 year old to fend for himself does the noncustodial parent have to continue to pay child support?
Yes. A different view: If the custodial moves out of state and abandons a minor, then the custodial parent should be charged with endangering a minor, child abuse an…d neglect. Then the non-custodial parent should be given full custody of the minor child, and should then sue the parent who abandoned child for child support. There is never any reason or excuse for a parent to abandon a minor child, and leave them to "fend for himself". That is child abuse, child endangerment and neglect.
If the child leaves the custodial parents home does the noncustodial parent still pay the custodial parent support?
Yes, until the court order is modified.
Does the noncustodial parent have to pay child support to custodial parent if child moves in with noncustodial parent?
No, but the new CP should immediately return to the venue that issued the order to get it terminated, or at least suspended until custody is worked out. Wrong. The newly-cust…odial parent will have to continue to pay child support until which time the "current" court order reflects that you no longer have to. Such things as a large pay differences could very-well continue having you pay child support but at a very small amount, in order to equalize the child's living conditions. (I thought it was BS too but I'm a single father who still pays child support)
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.
Depends on whether it's the mother or father earning more and related issues to access. Marcia Clark, the OJ Simpson prosecutor earned nearly 5X more than Gordon and and they …had joint custody, but he still had to pay child support. Her listed business expenses included clothing, shoes, makeup, and hair care cost for the trial. I got a copy of the case file an hour before she filed to have it sealed.
Does the wife of the noncustodial parent that owes child support have to pay the custodial parent child support if the noncustodial parent is not working?
It depends on the state. If your state calculates child support based on household income, then yes, she would be required to pay her husband's child support. If your state ca…lculates child support based on only the non-custodial parent's income, then no, should would not be required to pay. However, her husband would still owe that money, and it will continue to accumulate as a debt until he pays it.
Usually, yes; however, some parents with joint custody pay support.
If the noncustodial parent does not pay child support to the parent that has custody does the parent have to let them know when the travel outside the state in which they live in?
Not as long as it doesn't interfere with the access rights.
That depends on the language of the order for support and the laws of the State in which that order was entered. However, in general, child support continues to at least age 1…8, barring death, emancipation or adoption. Support often continues into adulthood for severely disabled children.
In general, child support is a percentage of net income. In Illinois, for example, it's 20% of net income for one child, 25% for two, etc. Income includes almost everything,… including overtime, unemployment benefits and workers compensation, but not welfare payments or SSI.
Does the custodial parent pay child support if the child is with the noncustodial parent for a month?
Usually no unless the two of you are willing to go back to court and have the child support order changed for a month and then go back and change it back. They leave it the wa…y it is unless it's for a longer period than a month. It can only be changed in the court where it was issued.
Can people with guardianship of a child sue the custodial parent for child support if the noncustodial parent doesn't pay child support?
The biological parents have to pay child support to the one who have the child whether it's a grandparent, sister or the state. If the custodial parent do not actually have th…e child living with them the custody order has to be changed as well as the child support order.
Are child support payments by the noncustodial parent required if the custodial parent is remarried?
In general, yes. The payments are for the children, not the parent. The step-parent is not legally responsible for the children unless he adopts them.
