the mother of the child took the father off child support because she was not satisfied with the child support payments.
Marriage of the mother, father or child have no relationship to the collection of a debt.
The father probably still owes the back child support, but it may become more difficult to collect.
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).
Yes, its child support. If the money is not used to support the child then its being misused. Alimony would be to support you. If the father is looking after the child, then he should not be paying child support to the mother - she doesn't have the cost of looking after the child at that time. In fact, the mother may well be in a position to send chilod support to the father - it goes both ways and she is responsible for the child just as much as the father is.
Petition the court for a modification. If the back support was for any state aid the mother was on, then it can't be forgiven. If it isn't for that, then the mother can write a letter saying she forgives the back support owed to her.
The two concepts are not related. Payment of child support is a financial responsibility. It does not depend on whether you see your children or not.
Your mother should have pursued your father in court for child support when you were young. In most jurisdictions you have no legal standing to sue your father for child support now, and especially if there was no original child support order. If there was an order at some time your mother may be able to sue for arrears but that seems not to be the case.
If the mother doesn't seek a child support order no one will make the father pay. However, keep in mind that the mother can always change her mind and get back child support in the future. If the child and/or mother are receiving any state assistance the father will be required to pay child support.Fathers are responsible for supporting their children. If the mother doesn't need the child support then she should put it in the bank for the child's collegeeducation.
Yes, until the order is overturned, and provided the mother is not on Welfare.
mother of my child moved out of the country with telling anyone and i owe back child support, ive been given a petition to go to court what will happen ? its in ny
Child support arrears do not go away. If the state supported his child for a period of time then he must pay the arrears.
For what is he wasn't required to pay?
This depends on a couple of things, the state you are in and what your court order says. If the child is living full time with one parent it is the other parent who pays child support. However, if the child is living with the father for the summer (summer possession) the father will still continue to pay the mother child support even though the child temporarily is living with the father. The reason for this is the mother still has bills that are keeping the house and such for the child to come back too. The only way a father will not have to pay is if the court order says that during summer possession the father does not have to pay child support, but normally in this case the mother would not be obligated to pay child support to the father. However in the end, people should do what is best for the children and not worry about the dollars they receive or don't receive.
It depends on the rules of your state. In Oregon, yes.
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 you have been determined to be the father the court can assess back child support depending on state laws. The mother may have been recently made aware that she is entitled to child support. The court will render a decision.
The spouse is not obligated to pay but your incomes may be taken into account when they determine how much he pays every month on his back child support.
The parents have to go back to court to file a modification of the custody order. They should also terminate any child support order that obligates the father to pay child support
The father of the child (whether he was ever legally married to the child's mother or not) is obligated to pay the child support. His new spouse cannot be LEGALLY obligated to pay it since she has no part in the action at all, but there is no bar to her helping her husband pay it if she wishes to do so.
The only way would be to do a personal agreement between the mother & father, ideally having it filed with the court. However, at any time, either parent can utilize Child Support without the other parent's consent. If the Mother spends more time with the child than the Father, she is most likely entitled to child support.
No. The money isn't for the mother. The money is for supporting the child. Back child support belongs to the estate of the deceased and will eventually benefit the child. And even if the child should die, the back child support does not go away.
I doubt there were many child support laws back then. Normally, only the custodial parent of the child can file for child support, not the actual child.
Money will rarely if ever be a consideration for the court with regard to the best interest of the child. That is why the non-custodial parent will pay child support. If the mother is a good parent other than that, it is very unlikely that a court would remove the child from her.
