If your ex was granted custody and you pay child support how do you proceed when your 16-year-old desires to live with you full-time instead and how do you reverse the child support?
Change of custody and/or child support can only be done through the appropriate court procedures. The person must file a petition to modify/amend the original orders in the court of jurisdiction. Support orders must be adhered to until a a ruling is made on the status, if this is not done, the person ordered to pay the support could possibly be found in contempt of a court order.

If your ex was granted custody and you pay child support how do you proceed when your ex leaves custody to someone else?
If you have any parental rights at all, I'm not sure that your ex can "leave" custody to someone else without your involvement. In any case, you need to talk to a lawyer.
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.
My exwife and I have joint custody so no one has ever paid child support My son decided to live with his mom full-time and doesn't want any visitation am I obligated to pay my ex child support?
no you are not if he chooses to live with her full time. You would only be responsible for paying child support IF the court ordered such, which would require a hearing to …change the final divorce decree. The ex cannot just order you to pay it out of the blue without having changed the original court documents. . It should be noted that you may wish to do a voluntary child support order. Waiting for her to file would result in you paying all court costs. My question though is why the change with the child? Was there a problem in your home that resulted in this decision?
Of course you do, at least in most cases. It's still your kid and you must provide financial support for the child until he/she is 18 or as the court decides. Pay up, it's the… right thing to do. Don't be a deadbeat .
Typically, no; if you're under court order to do so, however, get an order terminating support (and setting the amount of arrearage, if any) - do not simply stop paying on you…r own.
Do you have to pay child support in the state of NC for a child that does not live with custodial parent?
The court should be aware, but I would not think so. The child is no longer at home.
No... because if you are paying child support it would be going to the person with physical custody.
Unless you are paying arrearages you can go to court and ask that the custody order be modified to reflect the current custody arrangement and also that the child support orde…r be terminated. If the payments you are making are back child support the other parent is still entitled to them because they were actually due when the child was in their care. Go back to the family court and petition for a modification to the custody order and a termination of the child support order.
Yes, this is an overal cost load for your portion of the child's care. It is independent of where the child is unless both parties agree to changes.. It also depends on what …kind of custody you're talking about, physical of legal? Legal custody has nothing to do with child support If you have 50/50 physical custody, that's way different Child support may not even be exchanged. It all depends on how much money is made by BOTH parents.
Yes, but it's rare for the courts to order it. Protecting the weaker sex.
The parent with physical custody receives child support from the other parent. If the parties have shared custody the court will use state guidelines to determine if someone p…ays child support and how much.
If there is a court or administrative order in place, you owe child support regardless of who has physical custody of the child, until/unless that order is modified or termina…ted.
If you are granted full custody of a child does the noncustodial parent still pay child support in NJ?
Yes, until the child support order has been modified to reflect the change in custody. You will be required to pay any arrears that have accumulated up until the modification …order.
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.
Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -
For the obligor, this is not a good idea. The obligor should pay support to the State disbursement unit or the courts, by check. Never pay cash and never give the funds to the… obligee.
