No. (The answer is the same whether the father is the obligor/non-custodial parent or obligee/custodial parent.)

No, the father has to pay child support for both children. Of course the child that decides to live with him will be treated as he/she were when you were both married, but the child you have will still continue to receive child support by law!

Yes, if the father is the custodial parent. It works just the same as when the mother is the custodial parent. The non-custodial pay child support based on their income and other factors.

Yes. The custodial father has a right to child support from the mother depending on their respective economic circumstances. Many mothers pay child support.

If the non-custodial mother was responsible for full child support before remarrying, that responsibility will continue until the court says otherwise. The court will consider the financial condition of both the non-custodial mother and of the custodial father in deciding whether to continue to require full child support.

A custodial parent may have to pay child support if his income is significantly higher than that of the non-custodial parent based on the non-custodial parent's "parenting time" percentage.


No, the person who has the child is the person who gets the child support so she would have to pay child support herself, as well as the father, to the person who has custody of the child.

The situation regarding child support MUST be revisited if the circumstances of the custodial parent change.

That does not seem right. The father needs to go back to court and get the Judgement altered so that the mother pays the non custodial support.

Yes. Just because you're not married doesn't mean you're not the child's father, and it's on that basis that child support is ordered. * Additionally, both parents are equally responsible for supporting their child/children. Courts no longer grant custodial rights to the mother simply because she is "the mother". However, the law presumes that an unmarried woman retains sole custody to a child until a court rules otherwise. The father must establish parentage before the court will consider child support, custodial, visitation or other issues

Single mothers have sole custody by default. Married mother must address it with the court. Non-custodial mothers can still get a child support award from the father.

Child support is the non-custodial parent's portion of the expenses of the child, including housing, food, clothing and so on. It is up to the custodial parent whether an "allowance" can be paid to the child from the child support amount.

That's up to the judge, but generally is only applicable when a father gets custody while owing, as only 7 out of 1000 mothers pay support to custodial fathers.

No. If you are not married you pay child support to the custodial guardian, in this case the mother (?), and they take a 26% (?) out of your income to pay for the child. She is also already spending a % of her income. Since you are not married you do not share a income.

Depending on your state, child support is normally paid to a custodial parent. If there is no custodial parent, other laws may apply. Check your local laws.

No. If there is not a custodial order in place the law presumes that an unmarried mother has full custodial rights to her child and does not need permission from the biological father or the court in matters concerning the child. In addition, when a child is born out-of-wedlock the biological father must establish paternity before custodial, visitation and child support can be addressed.

No. Your custodial parent must file a complaint for a child support order in the family court in your jurisdiction.

No, child support obligations and visitation or custodial issues are completely different matters.

No. Only the custodial parent get child support and not returning the child is kidnapping.

No. If the mother has full custody, the father must pay child support to the mother who is supporting the child. Put simply, the non-custodial parent pays child support to the parent who does have custody.If the custodial parent makes significantly more than the non-custodial parent, the court will not order the non-custodial parent to pay the custodial parent. There are formulas for each state and county that the courts follow. There are also circumstances that do not follow typical guidlines.
