Can they take money out of your account for child support if you marry someone who is obligated to pay child support?
Answer . \nIf the account is joint it can be levied to the extent of funds that belong to the non compliant parent.\n. \nThe joint holder would have to provide proof to the court of the percentage of funds belonging to them to prevent said funds from being levied.\n. \nThe best solution if for… the spouse who is not obligated for support to have an account in their name only and hold only funds belonging to them in this account.\n. \nNever attempt to deposit funds of the non compliant parent into an account held by someone else in order to avoid a levy for child support. Likewise never attempt to transfer property owned by the non compliant parent to avoid attachment for child support arrearages. (MORE)

Should the custodial parent pay for daycare and other such expenses out of a child support allotment?

This does not terminate your obligation to pay support; however, adoption of the child would ordinarily terminate your obligation.
Yes, if the child, who is now a parent, a minor you do owe childsupport. The fact that they are a parent doesn't allow you not topay for your child's support.

Does the obligated parent have to continue paying child support when the child reaches 18 and continues their educationif the child support states child support will end at age 18?
Not if the orders clearly state this, though that is not common in the US as many states go beyond that point. Some confusion in interpretation of this may exist in cases where the original order was in a state where support does end at age 18, but the child has been moved to another state. The juri…sdiction remains with that state as long as the obligor parent lives there, or is transferred to the state where that parent may move. The state where the child has moved does not have long arm jurisdiction unless the obligor parent has moved there. see link below (MORE)
