I take it you want to terminate your child support, and you should be able to do so. However, you will need to go to court to get this done.
The biological parents have to pay child support to the one who have the child whether it's a grandparent, sister or the state. If the custodial parent do not actually have the child living with them the custody order has to be changed as well as the child support order.
Yes, depending on state laws. But, a motion to modify can be presented to the court. see links
Only if the noncustodial parent becomes the custodial parent and gets a judgment to this effect.
Child support is intended to help pay for the basic living expenses, such as rent, utilities, clothing, insurance and the like, all of which remain the same even when the child is visiting the non-custodial parent.
The child is considered a runaway if refusing to live at home. The emancipation need not be approved by them. As for the child support, that is strictly interpreted by the court. see link
No, whether or not the obligated parent is married to the person in question is irrelevant. The law presumes that the non custodial parent is obligated to support his or her child in the same manner of living that the child would have experienced if the parents had not divorced.
If the arrangement is with the consent of the custodial parent and will be permanent then the custody and child support orders must be modified to reflect the change in legal custody. The parent in Texas needs to have their custody formalized by a court order so they can enroll the child in school, consent to medical treatment, etc. If the child support order is not modified the non-custodial parent may be subject to the accumulation of child support arrears.
Not really the Judge will decide this matter for you.
If the support order included a provision continuing support while the child was enrolled in college it does not matter where the child is living, as the support is to reimburse the custodial parent for the non custodial parents share of the child's expenses. If the child is attending school the custodial parent is likely still paying expenses for that child regardless of where they are living
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.
No, but the new CP should immediately return to the venue that issued the order to get it terminated, or at least suspended until custody is worked out.Wrong. The newly-custodial parent will have to continue to pay child support until which time the "current" court order reflects that you no longer have to.Such things as a large pay differences could very-well continue having you pay child support but at a very small amount, in order to equalize the child's living conditions.(I thought it was BS too but I'm a single father who still pays child support)
Yes. Child support is for the "custodial parent". If you are not living at home with your custodial parent, then they are no longer eligible to receive child support. However, the non-custodial parent can request a modification if the child is no longer living with the custodial parent and that includes a change of custody. A 17 yr old is not emancipated in Texas, unless proper procedures through the courts have taken place. If that is the case, then the custodial parent and child are no longer eligible for child support.
No. In general, child support is a percentage of net income.
The child does not receive support payments - the custodial parent of the child does.
Child support in Ohio usually continues until the child is 18, and up to the age of 21 if the child is in school. Whether or not you have to pay child support if the child is living with the noncustodial parent depends on the support order that it is in place Typically you can expect that you will have to expect to pay support.
The income difference between both parents are irrelevant when it is in reference to child support. There is, in most family courts, a calculation based on the total cost to raise a child. Most states can only take up to or about 10-20% of a persons income but that is just a baseline and other factors such as cost of living for the individual paying the child support can greatly affect the payout to the other parent.
In Massachusetts: If there is a child support order (issued by the court) then the 'non-custodial' parent will have to pay child support to the 'custodial' parent until the child support order is modified by the court. Even if the kids actually live with the 'non-custodial' parent, that parent still has to follow the current court orders, no matter how unfair. If the kids are living with the non-custodial parent, though, it shouldn't be too difficult to go into court and get the child support order changed.
No. Unless specifically ordered otherwise, child support payments go to the custodial parent as ordered.No. Unless specifically ordered otherwise, child support payments go to the custodial parent as ordered.No. Unless specifically ordered otherwise, child support payments go to the custodial parent as ordered.No. Unless specifically ordered otherwise, child support payments go to the custodial parent as ordered.
In such a case, the non-custodial father should prepare to begin paying child support.
Yes, under the Hague Treaty.
No. Child support arrears are owed to the parent.
You have to do whatever your court order says, if the situation has changed you need to go back to court and get a new court order. Failure to pay your court ordered child support can result in loss of license and other penalties. Yes. The child support order must be modified in order for the non-custodial parent to be relieved of their obligations under that order. If the child support order is not modified the non-custodial parent may be subject to the accumulation of child support arrears should the dynamics of the relationship change again.
