If the mother doesn't seek a child support order no one will make the father pay. However, keep in mind that the mother can always change her mind and get back child support in the future. If the child and/or mother are receiving any state assistance the father will be required to pay child support.Fathers are responsible for supporting their children. If the mother doesn't need the child support then she should put it in the bank for the child's collegeeducation.


Can a mother get into trouble if the father is paying child support and not seeing the child?

Not if the father hasn't requested a visitation schedule. The mother should allow the father to visit with the child. However, if there is no visitation order in place she won't "get into trouble" if he's is not having visitations with the child. Child support and visitations are two separate issues as far as the court is concerned.Fathers are entitled to visitations. If the mother refuses the father should return to court and request a visitation schedule. The mother will be legally obligated to obey that order.Not if the father hasn't requested a visitation schedule. The mother should allow the father to visit with the child.

If the mother deprive the father the right to see his child and he pays child support what are will the courts do for legal relief for him?

If the father has visitation rights and the mother refuses to allow the father those rights, then the father can sue the mother in a civil contempt proceeding. If she doesn't have a good reason for disallowing the visitation then she can be held in contempt of court. There are various remedies including giving the father more visitation to make up for the visitation that was disallowed by the mother or even giving the father custody, but usually, the judge will just order the mother to allow the visits. His paying or not paying child support has nothing to do with whether or not he gets visitation (i.e. he gets visitation regardless of whether or not he is current with child support).


Can you still receive child support from the alleged father if another person's name is on the birth certificate?

No, the father on the birth certificate is financially responsible unless proven that he's not the father by DNA. About 12 years ago in the state of NJ The court ordered me to pay child support to the biological father (Dna test showed I was not the biological father) The court called me the psychological father so in the courts opinion I was her father. And like the biological Mother he also drank it away.
