If non custodial parent owes back child support and the child goes to live with the non custodial parent does the custodial parent at that point have to begin paying child support?
Yes, in most circumstances. However, you need to notify the court of the change in circumstances as soon as possible. The existing child support order and custody order will remain in effect until the court is notified. You should be aware that any child support arrears that accumulated prior to the modification of the existing court orders still need to be paid.

Thanks for the feedback!
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.
In Texas Does a non custodial parent have to pay child support if the child lives with them and not the custodial parent in Texas?
No, but the new CP should get into court right away, get legal custody and get the order for support terminated. Initially, contact the AG with evidence that you have posses…sion of the child. They can initiate a modification request. see link
In general, child support is based on ability to pay. The court may order the NCP to seek employment and report on his efforts to do so.
Of course. Unless the non-custodial parent takes sole custody, thenon-custodial parent is still responsible for paying child supportto whomever the child goes to. There is no …reason the death of aparent should terminate the other parent's child supportobligation.
What do you about support when you are the non-custodial parent and the custodial parent wants to hand over the child to you?
They can't simply "give the child to you." You need to return to the court and have the custody order modified so you'll have legal custody. It will go easier if the current …custodial parent consents to the modification. At that time the current support order should be terminated and you can request child support if you wish.
Will a court order a custodial parent to pay a non custodial parent child support if the custodial parents income is much higher than the non custodial parents income?
While not the norm, yes, it can happen, and is based on the non-custodial's parenting time. However child support calculation is complicated and involves many factors. Consult… an attorney in your area for an informed opinion.
Will a court order a custodial parent to pay a non-custodial parent child support if the custodial parents income is much higher than the non-custodial parents income?
No, the custodial parent does not have topay anything to the other parent. The NON-custodial parent will still have to pay something as their contribution to the support of th…e child(ren) , but because of the difference in incomes it may be fairly small.
Well actually, it depends. A non-custodial parent can still have liberal, defined visitation and if that parent, say has 3 days a week or every weekend, and their income is va…stly lower than the income of the custodial parent then there would be an avenue in many states where that 'non-custodial' parent would be entitled to child support. Again, it would vary on a number of factors including what you mean by non-custodial. If non-custodial includes no physical or legal custody and/or no visitation at all, the avenue seems virtually impossible. However, simply being non-custodial would not be the single defining point. In fact, there wouldn't be a single variable that would determine the answer to this question (particularly as state law were weighed in). Best advice, contact an attorney, many will provide free first consultations.
Why does a non custodial parent pay for child support to the custodial parent when they live together?
Because you are not married and filed for child support. You have to pay child support to one parent and that has to be to the one with custody. If you both had 50/50 custody …it could look differently but you only have visitation.
Child support is intended to help pay for the basic living expenses, such as rent, utilities, clothing, insurance and the like, all of which remain the same even when the chil…d is visiting the non-custodial parent.
What if a non-custodial parent is paying child support to a custodial parent for a child who does not even live with the custodial parent?
Contact your child support office or court that issued the child support order and give them the details. We are going through this right now. My husband's 16 year old daughte…r has been living with her aunt for 6 months now because her mom has an alcohol and drug abuse problem and does not provide anything for the child. She does not work and her only source of income is child support. My husband reported this situation to his case worker and CA child support has issued an immediate stop payment so that no further funds will be disbursed until after all parties have gone to court to establish a legal guardianship. Since his daughter has been living 100% with her aunt and wishes to continue doing so, all child support payments will be disbursed to the aunt rather than the mother if all goes well in court.
Of course. The child is still your child and you must continue to pay child support unless the new spouse legally adopts your child. In that case, your parental rights would e…nd.
Yes, unless the non-custodial parent gets custody. In that case the non-custodial parent must file a motion to terminate the child support order. The child support should be …paid to whoever has custody of the child. If it's not the non-custodial parent then the child support order should be modified to reflect the party that should receive the child support payments. You have to pay for your child so you have to pay to the one who has custody while the other parent is in prison. If the state has custody you will pay the state.
The amount is determined by statutory child support guidelines in most jurisdictions or the department of social service in the state the child lives if the child is receiving… financial support from the state.
Can a Florida custodial parent receive child support from the non custodial parent even if the custodial parent owes child support for the same children from a previous case?
That's up to the judge, but generally is only applicable when a father gets custody while owing, as only 7 out of 1000 mothers pay support to custodial fathers.
It doesn't matter what the child wants. If they still live with the custodial parent, child support must still be paid. If the child changes residences via court ordered custo…dy modification, a motion to modify support based on that should be made at the same time.
Why does a non custodial parent pay for child support to the custodial parent when child isn't living with them?
If the child lives permanently with a different legal guardian the child support should go directly to them but if this is only temporarily the parents who receive child suppo…rt can give it to the person who have temporary custody.
