Child support laws are determined by the state in which the child/children reside which is where the support will be ordered. Some states use the "income shares model" of determining support, which is basically the amount needed to give the child/children the same standard of living they would have experienced if the marriage or relationship had not ended. Other states base the amount on the percentage of net income of the parent ordered to pay the support, for example. 1 child25% and so forth, the maximum is generally set at 40%-50% of the net income.

Does a non custodial parent still have to pay child support when the custodial parent is in jail?

Yes, unless the non-custodial parent gets custody. In that case the non-custodial parent must file a motion to terminate the child support order. The child support should be paid to whoever has custody of the child. If it's not the non-custodial parent then the child support order should be modified to reflect the party that should receive the child support payments. You have to pay for your child so you have to pay to the one who has custody while the other parent is in prison. If the state has custody you will pay the state.


Will you receive more child support with sole custody as opposed to joint custody?

You may since sole custody implies the child lives with that parent 100% of the time. With joint custody the child may dwell with the other parent for part of the time or with one parent all of the time with visitations for the other parent. It depends on the details and the state child support guidelines.


Is there a difference in child support between joint and sole custody?

If the parties actually share joint custody and have the child with them 50% of the time, then there may or not be child support depending the the parties' respective incomes. If the parties share parental responsibilty but one of them is considered the "custodial parent" and the other had visitation, then there would be a child support obligation on the part of the non-custodial parent." If one of the parties is the "sole" parent, the child support will probably be the same.


Do the non-custodial parent have to pay child support if he or she gives full custody?
