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.

How can you find out how much you should get in child support?

Child support is determined by the number of children you have in your care and the financial situation of the parent that is paying child support. Since every person's financial situation is different the amount people have to pay for child support varies from case to case. There is no set amount. The only way you can find out how much you should receive is to go to court to sue your children's' other parent for child support. The court will them determine how much should be paid every month.


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.

Does child support stop when the child is not living with the custodial parent?

Child support stops when the court order mandating it says it does and not until then (unless the parent paying the support dies, in which case he ... I'm assuming it's a he ... is pretty much beyond the reach of the court to enforce it). If the situation changes (e.g. the child is no longer living with the custodial parent) then the non-custodial parent can go back to court to have the order modified. Until it's modified, keep making the payments.
