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!
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.
The only way to stop paying child support is to go to court and request that the custody and child support orders be modified.
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.
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.
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.
No. Paying child support is not a reason in and of itself for the court to change the custody order. The parent who wants custody must petition the court for custody and have …a very good reason to compel the court to make such a substantial change. They would need to provide evidence that here has been a change in circumstances since the last custody order was issued by the court and a change in custody is in the best interest of the child. They would need to provide proof that the present custodial parent is unfit.
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.
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.
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.
You can get awarded child support by a judge, but collecting it is an altogether different situation.
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.
Child support is a complicated calculation. Parenting time is taken into consideration when coming to an amount, so if your parenting time has increased since the original chi…ld support order was granted, you can file for modification based on the same. If and until such a modification is granted, you are expected to pay support as outlined in the original agreement. You may be awarded credit retroactive to the period of time where you had greater physical custody of the child, but again, that is up to the court.
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.
Yes. If someone else has been appointed your child's legal guardian then you can be ordered to pay child support. Yes.

Can a custodial parent who lost custody get custody of the child back when still owing child support to the non-custodial parent who now has custody?
There must be a significant change in circumstances. You can petition the court and request a modification of the custody order. Your arrears will remain and you must pay them….

Well no, but if the custodial parent need benefits or financial support form the state the non-custodial parent will be asked by the state for child support. Parents are first… responsible to support their child.
