Your question could be read in different ways. Child support is intended only for the support of children and their needs. If the children are in the custody of (living with and being supported by) someone who is not the parent on a regular basis, that person must petition the court to be appointed the legal guardian and then petition for a child support order against the parents. If you are the parent then you must have custody in order to get child support. If your children are in the custody of someone else, such as the example provided above, you cannot receive child support.

Why does your boyfriend have to pay child support when he has joint custody of his kids you live together and have a child of your own?

The answer is simple:Child support is paid to the parent who has physical custody of the children by the parent who does not support the children in a residential setting on a daily basis. The child support goes toward the expense of providing a home and necessities for the children.Your boyfriend has to pay child support because he is the children's father and therefore legally responsible for the children's support.You and your child have nothing to do with your boyfriend's obligation to pay child support for his other children.Now, the questions that you should consider are: Why should your boyfriend get to not support his children because he has started another family with you? Should he be allowed to leave you eventually, start a third family, and not help support the children he makes with you?
