Custody Documents

If you are a non-custodial parent and you sign temporary custody papers do you still have to pay child support?

Temporary custody papers will include all provisions for the child/children including amount of child support to be paid. A temporary agreement is made when guidelines need to be set/enforced before the matter goes to court. The child still as necessities that must be provided for, therefore I would say yes... whichever parent the child is living with is entitled to the amount of childsupport set forth by the laws in your state.

Go to the Clerks of the Court at your county court house. Ask for papers for temporary custody. They will steer you in the right direction.

You would need the signature of the person who has custody of you at the time.

It is assumed you mean the parents have joint legalcustody and one parent has physical custody.Generally, the parent with physical custody is awarded the child support since child support is intended to help pay for the child needs, living expenses and all the associated costs of raising the child. The custodial parent has much more in living expenses that are associated with raising the child.See related question link.

It's not necessarily automatic. You should show the custody order to the venue that issued the child support order.
