Answer Yes. However, such a refusal would not change the non-custodial parent's visitation rights. It is also possible to request the non-custodial parent …to place a specified amount of money into a trust or educational fund in lieu of traditional maintenance payments.
Can a mother get full custody if she is unemployed and still living with her parent who supports them all and the father has court ordered child support that he does not pay?
What a mother can get, in the United States at least, is up to a Judge. He (or she) will examine the particulars of a situation.
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.
No. If the mother has full custody, the father must pay child support to the mother who is supporting the child. Put simply, the non-custodial parent pays child support to the… parent who does have custody. If the custodial parent makes significantly more than the non-custodial parent, the court will not order the non-custodial parent to pay the custodial parent. There are formulas for each state and county that the courts follow. There are also circumstances that do not follow typical guidlines.
That will depend on the laws in your state. It can also depend on the specific court order. Most provide for support as long as the child is a full time student. Added: Actual…ly while the above answer is 100% correct it should clarify the fact that the child does not receive the suppprt payment. The custodial parent receives the support payment, and may allocate it as they see fit.
Yes. In the US the law presumes that an unmarried mother retainssole custody to the child until a court rules otherwise. Childsupport and custodial issues are two entirely dif…ferent matters.The granting of sole custody to one parent does not relieve the noncustodial parent of their financial obligations even if the couplewere/are not married.
Generally, yes, if you have full physical custody. It's normal for things to happen that way... the custodial parent receives child support payments from the non-custodial par…ent in order to help pay for the child's, well, support... but really it all depends on what the court decree says, and there might potentially be cases in which the court rules otherwise.
No, the parent that originally had custody of the child no longer recieves child support after the custody arrangements change. However, the court must be notified of the chan…ge so the child support order can be modified. The parent with custody receives the child support.
It depends on a number of different factors. How often do you have the children vs the other parent? What is your income vs the other parent? etc. Child support is supposed to… reflect the type of lifestyle your child may have had if the parents had stayed together. It is also to keep it fair to the parents. If one makes $50 a week and is told to pay $5 in support, but the other makes $1000 a week, asking only $5 from parent #2 wouldn't be fair. It is based on percentage. So even if you have 50% custody and visitation, if you make more money, then the bulk of support for the child will most likely come from you. Actully its not fair, but we have to pay it because people who dont work hard think it is fair. I work 60 hrs a week and my x wife who left me for another man only works 30 hrs a week. Even tho we make the same money an hr, since I work harder I have to pay the cheating coniving woman.
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.
Child support is not based upon how custody is allocated. It is based upon who the child resides with the majority of the time. If the child resides with the mother most of th…e time, then the mother bears most of the expense of raising the child, therefore the non-present parent is required to pay support. If child resides an equal or almost equal amount of time with both parents, the court evaluates the income/assets of both parents and the needs of the child. The decision will then be made if the payment of child support is warranted, the amount, and which parent should be responsible for payment of such.
At what age does child support payments end? Generally, the obligation ends when the child reaches 18 years of age or the child graduates from high school, wh…ichever occurs later. A child will also automatically be ineligible for child support is removed from disability status by a court order. Pennsylvania
Who legally adopted the child? If the mother's new husband legally adopted the child, then the biological father's parental rights had to be terminated first. Whic…h means that the biological father is NOT obligated to pay child support anymore. The new adoptive father has taken on all rights and responsibilities for the child.
When child support is paid in full what can the non custodial parent get for proof that would be official or legal?
The best document would be a court order to that effect.
Can someone who has legal custody of a child receive food stamps if the child has not lived with them for a year?
For the child, no; for themselves, yes. You should consider that if the child is not living with you you must provide that information on the application or renewal. You can… be prosecuted for falsifying the information you provide. You can only get food stamps for a child in your legal custody if you can say the child lives with you. Also, if custody was removed from the parents by a court, and granted to you, and you allow that child to live back with the parents, you may be held liable for any harm that comes to the child because of your failure to take your legal responsibilities seriously. In my state, grandparents with guardianship allowed their daughter to take back custody of her toddler after the child was removed by the state because of child abuse. The child was subsequently fatally injured by its father and the grandparents are also being prosecuted. You should notify the court that your "guardianship" should be terminated.
