Can a Mexican mother claim child support from a father living in the US?

Any mother can go to court in the US to claim child support form the father for a child she is caring for. Babies are not born by spontaneous combustion. The father is as responsible for the child's welfare as is the mother. If the child is living with the father and custody given to the father, the mother is liable for child support, too.

Can a father work and collect welfare on a child he has shared custody and mom pay child support?

Yes, if the father has more time with the child than the mother, she will owe him child support.

If the father is paying child support then he goes to prison is there any help for the mother?

Only Welfare

Will you still get child support payment if the father is on welfare?

Child support is calculated based on income of the father (or mother in such a case). If the father is unemployed his child support will still be calculated based on whatever minimum wage is in your state. The only time this does not apply is when the father is on disability. Welfare shouldn't matter.

Can you sue your biological father for back child support if your mother received welfare?

If you're in the US, no, a child cannot sue his parent for child support (payment for child support is not due to the child).

In California if a mother is on welfare and the father signs all rights of the child over to the mother to stop child support does welfare get shut off for the mother?

No as he can't do that. Not even the courts have the authority to exempt the man from paying child support when Welfare is involved. The mother has no say or authority over the child support. She forfeited that right when signing up. She would have to first give up her claim to Welfare benefits before any action could be taken on child support.

Does the father have to continue paying child support if he moves back in with the mother?

Yes, until the order is overturned, and provided the mother is not on Welfare.

Does a mother have to agree for a father to pay child support?

No, Welfare will file, plus the father can file an order, as he should. see link

If Father and child are welfare recipients mother lives with them on a on and off basis will mother have to pay child support?

Yes, though only 7 out of 1000 ever pay it.

Can the mother of your child petition you off welfare for non payment of child support?


If the mother of the child gets married can she lose her support?

Doubtful. The child support is for the welfare of the child, not the mother. Check with your state child support office for specifics of the law in your state.

If you get married do you have to tell the man who gives you child support?

Depends on specific states laws as they apply to child support and the welfare of the child. If the mother married a sex offender, should the father know?
