No. Custody and child support are two different legal issues and they are addressed separately.

the guardian should file to have the order transferred to them as well as file on the parent currently receiving it to also pay. Or the obligor parent should file for custody.

Encourage the person or persons with legal custody to file for child support modification or diversion of funds to them. If they do not have legal custody, that must be established or child support will continue to go to the person of record, the parent, in this case.

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 change so the child support order can be modified. The parent with custody receives the child support.

In general, yes; however, it depends on who has legal custody and the language of the order(s).

No, sole custody fathers can also be ordered to pay child support if their income is significantly higher. This is common in California.

Parents often have joint custody with one parent having physical custody. Generally, the parent with physical custody receives child support from the non-physical-custody parent. There are other arrangements whereby the parents share physical custody. States are required to have child support guidelines and the guidelines will control who pays child support and how much. The court will issue a court order to that effect.Parents often have joint custody with one parent having physical custody.

No, it's a matter for the obligor to report the situation to the court, and either request a modification of support, and/or custody order as soon as they discover that the child is not living with the custodial parent. The court can investigate the situation.

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 pays child support and how much.

Generally, the parent with the greater amount of physical custody is entitled to child support.

No. Custody means the child lives with you. Support means you are paying the parent who has custody.

No, that alone is not a reason to terminate custody. The non-custodial parent should be paying child support.

User Avatar

Generally no, though there is a presumption of primary residential custody for the obligee parent. In states like California, the amount of time the obligor parent has the child affects the amount of child support ordered.ClarificationChild support orders and custody orders are separate. Generally, the parent who pays child support pays it to the custodial parent.

The custodial parent is the parent with custody/guardianship of the child.

A parent who is under a child support order has established paternity and along with that comes other parental rights. He can petition for custody and/or a visitation order.

User Avatar

The persons in custody of the child must file for legal guardianship and request the court modify the child support order. The person needs legal standing to receive child support.

User Avatar

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.

Generally, the parent without physical custody but the court will decide.
