The amount is determined by statutory child support guidelines in most jurisdictions or the department of social service in the state the child lives if the child is receiving financial support from the state.

It is assumed you mean the parents have joint legalcustody and one parent has physical custody.Generally, the parent with physical custody is awarded the child support since child support is intended to help pay for the child needs, living expenses and all the associated costs of raising the child. The custodial parent has much more in living expenses that are associated with raising the child.See related question link.

Say the custodial parent is unemployed and filed for child support the noncustodial parent has a job and is paying child support without the court what would be the end result in this?

A friend of mine had the same issue. He paid some of the child support. When he and the mother went to court, the court looked at how much he earned at the time and the time of the child support claim. The court determained how much he had to pay every month and deducted the ammount he paid the previous months and what ever was left they added on top of his current child support for a period of time. After he paid the amount which was owed to the child he started to pay the regular amount set by the court.


Who pays child support if you have joint custody?

The parent with physical custody receives child support from the other parent. If the parties have shared custody the court will use state guidelines to determine if someone pays child support and how much.


If you live in Texas and have temporary joint custody but the noncustodial parent is in active duty and you've been fighting for months to enforce child support should you move in with your relatives?

A single parent and their child/children moving in with a relative will not change the status of the non-custodial parent's legal responsibility to support his or her child or children. The court bases the decision of how much support should be paid on the income of the obligated parent and what the child's or children's economic level would have been if the parents had not separated. If you know his name, and where he is stationed, you can contact that installation's Inspector General and file a complaint. There are specific service regulations that mandate a servicemember's payment of child support. If you are fighting to have court-ordered child support enforced, the Inspector General can assist with either enforcement or other resolution.
