Single mothers have sole custody by default. Married mother must address it with the court. Non-custodial mothers can still get a child support award from the father.

What if child custody changes does the parent still get child support?

No, the parent that originally had custody of the child no longer recieves child support after the custody arrangements change. However, the court must be notified of the change so the child support order can be modified. The parent with custody receives the child support.

Who pays child support when no legal custody has been established?

Determining child support has only one goal which is to determine medical, financial and daycare support. Custody is NOT determined when child support is established. To establish child support you have to go to court. Otherwise if the mother was unwed and paternity/custody is not established she automatically has sole custody which entitles you to pay her child support but you are not entitled to visitation, school/dr records etc unless she gives them to you... If custody is not established then the mother has custody

Do you have to have custody to file for child support?

Your question could be read in different ways. Child support is intended only for the support of children and their needs. If the children are in the custody of (living with and being supported by) someone who is not the parent on a regular basis, that person must petition the court to be appointed the legal guardian and then petition for a child support order against the parents. If you are the parent then you must have custody in order to get child support. If your children are in the custody of someone else, such as the example provided above, you cannot receive child support.
