No she can not drop child support. But she can go and get a prosage package. That reduces the amount of money he has to pay for child support. If you don't want him to pay child support at all then why don't he pay it and you give it back to him yourself the next time you guys see each other.

She can visit her local domestic relations office. There is a form (i can't recall the name of it) that the plaintiff completes to state she no longer wishes to receive child support from the defendent. Or depending on the situation you can request that the noncustodial parent relinquish his rights to the child.

An attorney told me that after my wife and I divorced she could write me receipts stating that I had paid her. That way the non-custodial parent is in the clear from back support if anyone should change their mind.

Yes, in Michigan a mother or father can stop child support payments that is owed to them, but not what is owed to the state. They simply would have to go to the FOC office and fill out a form or just write out on paper. The father should be aware that the referre or judge will try to convince the mother not to do so.

Can the custodial parent stop a child support order? all means yes they can. If the custodial parent no longer wants child support from non-custodial parent the custodial parent must petition the court to end the order. The order must be signed by a judge. However ended the support will zero out any late payments also.

When the custodial parent passes away and the non custodial parent becomes the custodial parent does the minor child have a say where he wants to live?

No, the minor child must live with the custodial parent who decides where they will live.

Does a non custodial parent pay child support if the child wants to live with them fulltime?

It doesn't matter what the child wants. If they still live with the custodial parent, child support must still be paid. If the child changes residences via court ordered custody modification, a motion to modify support based on that should be made at the same time.

If a 16-year-old wants to move to a non-custodial parent's home do you have to pay child support?

If the non-custodial parent makes an issue of it and files a motion for support, then most likely yes.

What do you about support when you are the non-custodial parent and the custodial parent wants to hand over the child to you?

They can't simply "give the child to you." You need to return to the court and have the custody order modified so you'll have legal custody. It will go easier if the current custodial parent consents to the modification. At that time the current support order should be terminated and you can request child support if you wish.

Can you keep the father of your child from having visitation rights and still collect child support?

Child support and visitation are two separate issues. The custodial parent can file a suit for child support but cannot deny the non custodial parent custodial or vistation rights is said parent wants those rights. That being said, the non custodial parent can file for custody or visitation regardless of whether the child support issue is addressed or not. Such matters are decided by the court if the parents cannot find an equitable solution.

What if father isn't listed on birth certificate but mother wants child support but no visitation rights?

Once paternity is established, the non-custodial parent has the right to request visitation, just as the custodial parent has the right to request support.

In NY state if a child wants to live with the non-custodial parent at age eighteen does the custodial parent then pay child support?

Typically child support ceases when the child reaches the age of majority unless the court decides to continue support while the child is in school, whether it be high school or college. You can certainly go to court and request an order of support, but unless you were previously ordered to pay support to the custodial parent beyond age eighteen while the child was in their care it is unlikely an order will be imposed.

Is child support increased if a child wants to live only with the custodial parent?

It doesn't matter what the child wants. It only matters what the court decides is in the best interests of the child. If it is found that awarding sole legal and physical custody of a child to one parent is in his or her best interests, child support may be increased accordingly.

If a pregnant 16-year-old wants to live with the non-custodial parent will the custodial parent have to pay child support?

The minor female could not arbitrarily change residences without the permission of the custodial parent or the court. In addition, the custodial parent would not be required to pay support unless the non custodial parent filed for primary custody and support payments and the court granted the petition. The parent paying child support is legally obligated to continue with the terms of the court order until said order is rescinded or amended. To cease the action, regardless of the change of circumstances would place the parent in a position of contempt of a court order.

What if the child's custodial parent is gone for most of the year and the child wants to be with the non custodial parent?

Then the child should petition the court (or have the non-custodial parent petition the court, more likely) to modify the custody order. If the custodial parent is "gone for most of the year" and leaving the child in the care of someone else, the court will probably consider that a significant factor.

Does custodial parent have to provide phone service for child?

Absolutely not. Shelter, food and clothing basics are it. If the child wants phone service, he/she should go to work and earn the money. Or, if the non-custodial parent differs, and the custodial parent agrees, he can pay for it.
