Why should a noncustodial parent pay Child Support while kids are visiting?

Child support is intended to help pay for the basic living expenses, such as rent, utilities, clothing, insurance and the like, all of which remain the same even when the child is visiting the non-custodial parent.


Can my ex-husband take me to court if our child does not have his last name?

He can request custody or a visitation order if he is the father of the child.

Can you get contempt of court when the custodial parent refuses to return the child when there is a court order?

If the custodial parent refuses to obey the visitation order the non-custodial parent can file a motion for contempt.No argument intended, but only the presiding judge can issue a contempt order and that generally does not happen.If the non-custodial parent refuses to return the child, the usual procedure is for the custodial parent to first contact the child protection/enforcement agency for assistance. A social worker accompanied by police who have jurisdiction where the minor child is in residence will contact the non custodial parent and request the release of the minor to them. After a preliminary investigation of the circumstances they usually transport the minor child/children to the primary custodian .However, if there are circumstances which suggest the minor may have been endangered and/or neglected in either household he or she will remain in state's custody. All such action is reported to the court. A hearing is scheduled where all parties are required to attend. The judge will decide at that time what action if any should be implemented.

Who has the right to a child if the joint custody parent cannot meet his scheduled weekend?

Your question is unclear. If the non-custodial parent cannot take the child on her/his scheduled weekend the child will remain with the custodial parent. This is one of the many 'inconveniences' of divorce with children. However, the children should never be aware that a parent thinks spending time with them is inconvenient.

If a 16 year old refuses to visit non-custodial parent in Texas can the non-custodial parent force them to visit and can that parent stop paying child support if they won't visit?

AnswerChild support does not depend on visitation. They are addressed in separate orders and the orders remain in effect until they are modified by the court. If the child has a good reason to end visits with the non-custodial parent the custodial should file a motion with the court to modify the visitation order. The child should be old enough to offer testimony to the judge if he/she wishes. The parent and child should be prepared to offer specific evidence for curtailing the visits. Perhaps the non-custodial parent and child could instead meet for dinner each week away from the negative environment. Provide the court with enough evidence to make a fair determination.This matter should be addressed as soon as possible through the court system before the non-custodial parent has the time to file a motion for contempt against the custodial parent. That would change the nature of the dispute.File a motion for modification ASAP.


How can a custodial parent who makes more than noncustodial parent get fair treatment when going to court for child support arrears?

Some general background:The non-custodial parent is responsible for paying the amount specified in the child support order. Arrears will be assessed according to that amount. The court can modify the amount due in the child support order for future obligations but it should not do so retroactively. The amount of the arrears should remain based on the amount in the child support order. It was up to the non-custodial parent to request a modification of the original order if their circumstances changed and they could not pay.Your chances are always better if you are represented by an attorney.Some general background:The non-custodial parent is responsible for paying the amount specified in the child support order.

If non custodial parent owes back child support and the child goes to live with the non custodial parent does the custodial parent at that point have to begin paying child support?

Yes, in most circumstances. However, you need to notify the court of the change in circumstances as soon as possible. The existing child support order and custody order will remain in effect until the court is notified. You should be aware that any child support arrears that accumulated prior to the modification of the existing court orders still need to be paid.


At what age can a minor leave the custodial mother's home in Florida and move to South Carolina to live with his father?

I think he can leave the home when he is 18. * The legal age of majority for Florida is 18. The minor is required to remain in the custodial parent's home until that time unless the custody agreement or the court stipulates otherwise.


When a parent is incarcerated do they have to pay back child support owed?

In such a situation the support order will remain valid and collectible. When the person is released from custody the child support enforcement division for the state will take whatever action required to recover the monies owed. The matter of a non custodial parent being in a position where they are unable to honor a support order does not change the terms of said order. For that to happen the non custodial parent must petition the court to have the order amended or rescinded.
