In Massachusetts: If there is a child support order (issued by the court) then the 'non-custodial' parent will have to pay child support to the 'custodial' parent until the child support order is modified by the court. Even if the kids actually live with the 'non-custodial' parent, that parent still has to follow the current court orders, no matter how unfair. If the kids are living with the non-custodial parent, though, it shouldn't be too difficult to go into court and get the child support order changed.
what if the noncustodial parent still reside with the custodial parent, is noncustodial parent still obligated to pay childsupport
Yes. The marital status of the custodial parent change does not change the obligation of the noncustodial parent.
Generally the noncustodial parent may move anywhere - within or outside the state where the children live. The court grants the noncustodial parent the right to visit the children but does not force the noncustodial parent to take advantage of that right. However, a court may require the noncustodial parent to provide the custodial parent with contact information and, where issues develop about the care or safety of the children, the court may require supervised visitation or at least that the noncustodial parent advise the custodial parent where the children will be.
In general, yes. The payments are for the children, not the parent. The step-parent is not legally responsible for the children unless he adopts them.
Yes. The fact that the custodial parent got married has no impact on child support.
Yes, until the court order is modified.
Not from SSI, only SSDI.
If the noncustodial parent tries to keep the child, the custodial parent can get the noncustodial parent charged with kidnapping and contempt of court both can be jail time for the noncustodial.
Yes. They are still the child's parent and responsible for supporting their child.
Yes, as is their custodial right.
The obligation should not end, but rather transferred to the now nun-custodial parent.
Child support needs to be decided on by the court. In most cases, the noncustodial parent is responsible for something. If the custodial parent makes considerably more than the noncustodial parent, monies many not even be exchanged. To resolve this issue, it is best to file papers at your court house.
The State in which the child resides.
i am a custodial parent in Michigan. I've been to court to fight it, but unfortunately it is law that if the noncustodial parent is incarcerated they do not owe child support for the time that they are locked up. but if they owe back child support then you can seize anything they own.
Yes, they do.
No, but the non-custodial parent has a pretty good case for getting custody in court.
A noncustodial parent can prevent the custodial parent from leaving the state with a baby or child. The court will decide if the custodial parent has just cause to leave the state.
