Yes, if the father is the custodial parent. It works just the same as when the mother is the custodial parent. The non-custodial pay child support based on their income and other factors.

No, the person who has the child is the person who gets the child support so she would have to pay child support herself, as well as the father, to the person who has custody of the child.


A custodial parent may have to pay child support if his income is significantly higher than that of the non-custodial parent based on the non-custodial parent's "parenting time" percentage.

If mom is a non-custodial parent, it's likely she will have to pay child support.

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.

The answer is NO. Child support exists so the custodial parent can get help from the non-custodial parent to pay for the child's expenses like food, clothing, roof over their heads etc. If the Mother is not the custodial parent she is NOT entitled to Child support. So if the grandparents have custody of the child the child support should go to them directly. This have to be modified in the court where the child support was issued.

No. If the state is supporting the mother and child the mother has no right to free the father from his responsibility to support his own children. The state will pursue him for child support.

No, child support is only owed to the custodial parent/guardian. If the grandmother has become the custodial guardian, child support will be owed to her, instead of the mother.

You don't. Child support is by definition, the non-custodial parent paying to help cover the child-rearing expenses incurred by the custodial parent. Support payments are set by the court and the court would have to stop it. If the mother remarries and the new father adopts the child with your permission, then the child support stops.

Child support is paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. If there is a court order for the father to pay child support to the mother, and he gets the children after, he must pay child support until he gets the court order changed, usually by filing a complaint for modification in the original court.

I guess the question is why wouldn't she want to accept child support from her child's father? IF anything there is a moral obligation by BOTH parents to support and raise the child.Generally, a child is legally entitled to the support of their non-custodial parent. If the custodial parent doesn't "need" the money then it should be held in a college savings account for the child.

That does not seem right. The father needs to go back to court and get the Judgement altered so that the mother pays the non custodial support.

Child support is for the custodial parent.Be warned though that courts have ordered custodial fathers to pay when the mother make considerably less. This is most common in California.

Should be, but only 15% of custodial fathers get a child support order, of which only 5% receive anything, while another 9% are still required to pay child support to the mother.

Yes, of course. That is the purpose of paying child support: to help the custodial parent pay the costs associated with raising the child. Both parents are responsible for supporting a child and the non-custodial parent must support the child financially.

A parent must obey the child support order. A custodial parent may be serving in the military with the child under temporary guardianship. That is no reason to stop paying child support. If the child isn't living with the custodial parent who is receiving child support the matter must be brought before the court.

No. Only the custodial parent get child support and not returning the child is kidnapping.

Yes. Just because you're not married doesn't mean you're not the child's father, and it's on that basis that child support is ordered. * Additionally, both parents are equally responsible for supporting their child/children. Courts no longer grant custodial rights to the mother simply because she is "the mother". However, the law presumes that an unmarried woman retains sole custody to a child until a court rules otherwise. The father must establish parentage before the court will consider child support, custodial, visitation or other issues

If the non-custodial mother was responsible for full child support before remarrying, that responsibility will continue until the court says otherwise. The court will consider the financial condition of both the non-custodial mother and of the custodial father in deciding whether to continue to require full child support.

Single mothers have sole custody by default. Married mother must address it with the court. Non-custodial mothers can still get a child support award from the father.

Depends on the state. Technically child support is paid to the custodial parent. This means the parent actually has custody, not a parent who allows their child to live elsewhere. Therefore, if the custodial parent does not have custody, check your state laws. Another adult can be allowed to collect child support for the benefit of the child, but a non-custodial biological father can also be given custody in this case.
