Child support, is based on the needs of the child and the economic situation of the parents.

Child support is primarily determined by what it takes to provide the child with a reasonable standard of living, based on what the two divorced parents have available. Sole custody indicates that the child will be living solely (with limited visitation) with a just one of the parents. Thus, that parent will be responsible for providing the vast majority of the food, clothes, etc. that the child will be using. The non-custodial parent now no longer will be providing those (if they had shared custody). So it is likely that the court will also modify the child support requirement - either reducing the amount the custodial parent had been paying the now non-custodial parent, or increasing the amount that the now non-custodial parent had been paying the now custodial parent.

How does joint custody affect child support?

Joint Custody and Child SupportJoint legal custody has no effect on child support. With joint physical custody there is still a payment of child support from the higher income parent to the lower income parent, usually determined by a sliding scale based on time with each parent (procedures vary among states). Because both parents provide for the child directly, the payment between parents may be less, but the financial support to the child is the same or higher than with sole custody.

How does joint child custody affect child support in Alabama?

It depends on the type of joint custody. Custody is broken down into two subcategories- legal and physical. Legal custody is the ability to make decisions concerning the child and to act on the child's behalf. Physical custody is who the child lives with. Typically unless the child spends exactly 50 percent of the time with each parent, one parent is considered to have primary custody and the other parent to have secondary custody or visitation rights. Child support is based on who has primary physical custody, and that parent is typically awarded child support from the parent who has the child less since having the child more usually means that you provide for more of their needs as well.

What happens to the child support payments when the mother of the child dies?

If she had a will and left the child to a guardian then that may continue or if the person paying the child support takes the child it would stop. The court appoints a temporary guardian, usually the non custodial parent when possible and/or a Guardian Ad Litem. The child support order remains in affect because the money is meant for the child not the custodial parent. If the obligated parent is not awarded custody of the child, the child support will be paid to whomever the court appoints by means of the child support enforcement guidelines, until the child reaches the age at which the support is terminated by the court or the child is adopted.
