Can a father paying child support pay the child support to the child that moved out?

Depending on your state, child support is normally paid to a custodial parent. If there is no custodial parent, other laws may apply. Check your local laws.

Contact your child support office or court that issued the child support order and request a modification of the child support order.

How do you terminate child support if you are a non custodial parent?

You don't. Child support is by definition, the non-custodial parent paying to help cover the child-rearing expenses incurred by the custodial parent. Support payments are set by the court and the court would have to stop it. If the mother remarries and the new father adopts the child with your permission, then the child support stops.

Can a mother deny visitation if the father is paying child support?

Whether or not a parent is paying child support is irrelevant when the issue is visitation rights. If there is a court order for visitation the primary custodial parent must allow it or be found in contempt of court. If there is not a court order in place the custodial parent can make the decision to when, where or if visitation is allowed. Visitation guidelines are usually established during the custodial proceedings.

Does a father have to pay if the mother has full custody?

If custodial parent in Pennsylvania remarries can their new spouse's income be included for child support?

The income of a spouse of a custodial parent, can be used in determing a portion of the child support. Because the spouse of a custodial parent is most likely contributing to the expense of the house, utilities and such, the non custodial parent may be intitled to a reduction in support.. this is usually a case that has to be heard by a judge. the income of a non custodial spouse can not be used as they are not contributing to the expenses of the home the children live in. If you think about it, this makes sense. a non custodial parent is paying their share based on the over all expense of the custodial parents home and income.. if the custodial parent is not paying for a portion of those expenses, then an non custodial parent should not have to pay them either.

Does the non-custodial parent need to have insurance on the child when paying child support in Texas?

Yes, if it is so ordered in the child support agreement. If the parent loses their insurance and the custodial parent has the ability to insure the child - it will be possible for the state to order the custodial parent to do so. This may change the amount of support the non custodial parent pays - it is entirely up to the whim of the courts.

If the support order included a provision continuing support while the child was enrolled in college it does not matter where the child is living, as the support is to reimburse the custodial parent for the non custodial parents share of the child's expenses.

It's rare for the custodial parent to have to pay child support, but it does happen. It usually only occurs in one of three situations: 1. The custodial parent makes significantly more than the non-custodial parent. 2. Parenting time is split 50/50 (or close to it). Or 3. The non-custodial parent is paying additional expenses for the child, such as high health-care premiums or child care costs. Your state may have other exceptions to the rule, but yes, exceptions do exist and the custodial parent is sometimes required to pay child support to the non-custodial parent.

In general, visitation and child support are separate matters. However, if you aren't paying support, you might reasonably expect some resistance from the custodial parent about visitation! But of the two, denying a child a father is far more damaging and costly to the child and society in general. see link below
