In Wisconsin, it depends on who has physical placement of the child. It may also depend on who has the higher income of the both parents.

It is possible that even with joint custody you will still have to pay child support to the other parent.

Joint custody simply means both parents have equal rights in making decisions for the well-being of the minor child/children. The person with whom the child resides the majority of the time is the person who generally receives support to be used for the child's needs. If the time is equally divided the court will decide if and how any child support will be allocated, based upon income levels of the parents and the needs of the child.

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


If I have custody of my child and don't receive child support and I allow my child to go live with his father is he entitled to child support?

He may be. It will be determined by a court if he decides to take it up with the state. If you have custody, was there a stipulation regarding child support? If there was a divorce agreement it may state the stipulations regarding support and custody. If the custodial parent is giving up physical custody of the child to the previously non-custodial parent then child support may be changed.


Who pays child support if parents share custody of children?

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.
