Sometimes, yes. But this largely depends on the state laws, as well as the income of both parents.

Parents often have joint custody with one parent having physical custody. Generally, the parent with physical custody receives child support from the non-physical-custody parent. There are other arrangements whereby the parents share physical custody. States are required to have child support guidelines and the guidelines will control who pays child support and how much. The court will issue a court order to that effect.Parents often have joint custody with one parent having physical custody.

If two parents share joint custody of a child, but one has physical custody, then the non-custodial parent usually pays child support to help the parent with whom the child lives. It depends on the laws of your state - most states now have an online child support calculator.

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.

Generally, the parent without physical custody but the court will decide.

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.

I don't see how the parent not paying child support play any role in custody for the grandparents. If the parents are found unfit the grandparents have a chance for custody just like other relatives do. The biological parents are still the ones paying child support. Not being able to pay child support does not make you a unfit parent.

Usually, yes; however, some parents with joint custody pay support.

Encourage the person or persons with legal custody to file for child support modification or diversion of funds to them. If they do not have legal custody, that must be established or child support will continue to go to the person of record, the parent, in this case.

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.

Only if it can be shown that the parent does not have possession or custody of the children.

Where parents have spilt-up/divorced, and children are in the custody of either parent (generally).

If you have full custody than you're not the non-custodial parents. If the court makes a change in the custody order and the non-custodial parent is awarded custody then they won't need to pay child support and that order will be rescinded.

Yes. Child support is calculated based upon the income of both parents plus the amount of time each parent spends with the child.

Whichever parent the children live with after the parents separate has what is called de facto custody. Both parents still have equal rights and say regarding their children. You will need to start a court case to deal with a proper custody arrangement.

No, visitation and child support are 2 separate entities. The only way this would affect your support amount is if you are set up with 50-50 custody and the child stops going to the other parents house and you take them to court to get primary custody.

Shared legal custody means that both parents have equal rights to make decisions regarding the child. One parent may have physical custody with the non-physical-custody parent paying child support.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

Yes, if the court has not permanently terminated the biological parents rights to their children, the parents have the legal option to file suit to reclaim their custodial rights.

User Avatar

Yes. If the legal guardian has custody and is not the biological parent, the biological parents have to support their child and pay her for the child's expenses.

Yes, either from the other teen parent, or the teen's parents, which can be either the teen mother or father, depending on which has court ordered custody. Child support may not be ordered if the teen parent has joint physical custody, which is best for the child.
