Usually yes, but the amount will be based on factors such as your income, the other parent's income, etc. Try citizens advice bureau (if you're based in the UK) or equivalent for specific advice. In the US custody and child support are different issues, one has no bearing on the other. If there is a child support order in place the terms should be adhered to until/unless the support order is rescinded or amended. The paying parent should never arbitrarily cease paying the required amount on the specified date. Such action can result in contempt of a court order, nonsupport of minor children charges and so forth which may result in the non compliant parent being jailed.

Will you receive more child support with sole custody as opposed to joint custody?

You may since sole custody implies the child lives with that parent 100% of the time. With joint custody the child may dwell with the other parent for part of the time or with one parent all of the time with visitations for the other parent. It depends on the details and the state child support guidelines.

Does a non custodial parent still have to pay child support when the custodial parent is in jail?

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.

How does joint child custody affect child support in Alabama?

It depends on the type of joint custody. Custody is broken down into two subcategories- legal and physical. Legal custody is the ability to make decisions concerning the child and to act on the child's behalf. Physical custody is who the child lives with. Typically unless the child spends exactly 50 percent of the time with each parent, one parent is considered to have primary custody and the other parent to have secondary custody or visitation rights. Child support is based on who has primary physical custody, and that parent is typically awarded child support from the parent who has the child less since having the child more usually means that you provide for more of their needs as well.


Can a father of a child file for joint custody to avoid child support?

There are two types of custody, legal and physical.With joint custody the child may dwell with the other parent for part of the time or with one parent all of the time with visitations for the other parent. It depends on the details and the state child support guidelines. If the child spends equal time living with each parent the child support obligations will be effected. However, it is unfair to disrupt a child's life simply to avoid paying child support.

Can a court issue custody to a parent without the other parent knowing when the other parent is paying child support?

No, both biological parents must be notified of a custody hearing. However, if the parent who the child does not reside with does not appear in court on the date of the hearing they may lose their custodial rights by default. If child support has been ordered by the court the issue of custody would have already been decided.

Can a grandparent get custody of a grandchild whos non custody parent is not paying childsupport?

I don't see how the parent not paying child support play any role in custody for the grandparents. If the parents are found unfit the grandparents have a chance for custody just like other relatives do. The biological parents are still the ones paying child support. Not being able to pay child support does not make you a unfit parent.

What happens when child support recipient dies?

Child support payments will transfer to whomever has legal custody of the child but the court must be notified of the death and the child support order must be modified if the legal guardian will be other than the non-custodial parent.

Should I be required to pay support after seven years of custody and no support from other parent who now has custody and is demanding child support?

Prove that the other parent is not fit to have custody of them.
