No. That authority is not given to a custodial parent. Child support and visitation are two separate issues. The custodial parent must pursue contempt of court charges in order to collect arrears. She cannot refuse to follow the visitation order.No. That authority is not given to a custodial parent. Child support and visitation are two separate issues.

yes, the custodial parent needs to contact their case worker and submit a writtem letter stating that they do not wish to collect the back pay. (Illinois)


Technically arrears cannot be waived. However, a custodial parent can fill out a form stating that no child support is due.



Only with the agreement of the custodial parent/obligee (which may include the State), and the courts.


Only if the custodial parent agrees to the modification.


Yes, if the court determines the custodial parent is unfit and the child would be better off with the father. However, he will still owe the arrears to the other parent.Yes, if the court determines the custodial parent is unfit and the child would be better off with the father.

Child support arrears do not go away. They must be paid and the custodial parent should be persistent in following up through the court.Child support arrears do not go away.

There are tax forms which will allow you to claim the child on your taxes with the custodial parents permission. However, if you are in arrears the state will likely seize your tax return and give it to the custodial parent. It should be noted that the parent who can claim is not based on custody, but by time spent with the child.


Is this a trick question? If the child is legally an adult (and therefore 'emancipated') then there is no "custodial" parent.


No. That is not up to the child. If child support payments are in arrears, it means that the custodial parent was not receiving the child support as provided in the child support order issued by the court and the non-custodial parent was in contempt of a court order. The arrears are also set forth in a court order. The funds are owed to the custodial parent. Therefore, the debt cannot be "forgiven" by the child even if they are an adult.


The custodial parent or legal guardian should file the child support petition even if the whereabouts of the non custodial parent are currently unknown. This allows the petitioner to be in a position to collect all arrears of support once the absentee parent is located.



No. If there were arrears in this case it was owed to the custodial parent. The child does not get child support or arrears.



No, they are separate issues. If the custodial parent stops visitations they would be in violation of a court order. The custodial parent must address the child support arrears as a separate matter by filing a contempt order with the court.



Yes, if he has the child 51% of the time. Regardless of any custody agreement, or court order the IRS has it's own definition of who the custodial parent is. Section 152(e)(4) defines custodial parent as the parent having custody for the greater portion of the calendar year and noncustodial parent as the parent who is not the custodial parent.


The custodial parent can take you to court for contempt and the court can issue a new order for payment of the arrears. At the request of the custodial parent, the state may take various actions to collect that support, such as asking the courts to put you in jail for contempt, taking your tax refund or serving a wage assignment on your employer. You should be making payments against the arrears. You may be able to negotiate a cash settlement for a lesser amount if you can borrow the money to pay the arrears. For example, the custodial parent may agree to accept $15,000 if paid immediately.


You don't pay child support to the child, you pay it to the custodial parent. In general, the answer is no unless there is an amount in arrears. Marriage provides emancipation for the child and when a child is emancipated, they are considered an adult in the eyes of the courts. And when a child becomes an adult, the non-custodial parent's support option ends (again, other than any amount that is in arrears).


You have the same chance you had before. Child support and custody are 2 different cases in court.


Child support arrears do not go away. The custodial parent can continue to pursue arrears until they are paid off. State Child Support Enforcement can take your tax refund if you owe child support.Child support arrears do not go away. The custodial parent can continue to pursue arrears until they are paid off.
