If married, when you divorce him and if single when the child is born. He will then have to prove paternity in court and can then petition for visitation, custody and also pay child support.


If the father has no legal custody, but is paying child support, he should be at least told. It's his child, too. The parents divorced each other - they did not divorce themselves from the child.


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.


The mother, if married, should file for divorce and request to be awarded sole legal custody of the children. She should also request a child support order.If the parties are not married the mother has sole custody. She should file for child support and an order for DNA testing as soon as possible. The father must help to support the children.In either case the father will be entitled to a visitation order. He can also request joint custody but the court is unlikely to award that unless the parents have a good relationship.The mother, if married, should file for divorce and request to be awarded sole legal custody of the children.

In Alabama custody and visitation have nothing to do with child support. Not sure about other states.


Yes, if the father is not given custody he will be obligated to keep paying support to whomever the court awards custody or guardianship of the children.



There are no longer laws requiring a cause for a divorce in America, and whoever gets custody of the kids should get child support, though this does not mean it will be the parent who was cheated on. Also, the man may not be the father of the children born in the marriage.


My answer to that would be 'No'. The father is responsible for providing child-support regardless of who has custody of the child; at least until the age of 18.


He has every right to go back to court to petition for joint custody, yes.


The father will have to take the mother of the child back to court if the divorce is already finalized. Custody should have been determined during the divorce so if 1 party wants to change that, they will have to take the other person back to court again.


Sole custody means you have all the power. You can choose to keep the father out of their life until the children turn 18 if you want to or you can allow visits.


Child support may be waived only with the consent of the court/agency that entered the order. The divorce or support order may contain language about moving the child.

How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?


Of course not. Child support payments are paid over to the parent with legal physical custody.


You may have to pay child support to the one who has custody of your children.


If there was a legal divorce and division of marital property, the custody of the child(ren) MUST have been addressed in the divorce action. Check your divorce papers carefully. If it somehow happened that it was not addressed at the time of divorce, and you do not wish the father to have custody, you can go back to court and re-open the child custody portion of divorce proceedings, and a judge will make a determination as to who is the more 'fit' parent for primary custody.As long as the parenting plan is filed, yes. But, there are far more issues to be addressed if the father is not married to the mother. see link


Presumably the father will take full custody of the child and he should notify the court of the death so the child support order can be terminated.Presumably the father will take full custody of the child and he should notify the court of the death so the child support order can be terminated.Presumably the father will take full custody of the child and he should notify the court of the death so the child support order can be terminated.Presumably the father will take full custody of the child and he should notify the court of the death so the child support order can be terminated.


YES, IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE, YOU NEED TO ASK FOR CUSTODY AS PART OF THE DIVORCE SETTLEMENT. THIS WOULD BE THE BEST TIME TO DO IT BECAUSE IF SOCIAL SERVICES ALREADY TOOK THE CHILDREN FROM THE MOTHER , THE JUDGE WOULD EASILY GRANT YOU CUSTODY THE CHILDREN.


If he doesn't have physical custody then generally he must pay child support.
