Yes, as long as you have custody of the child/children. Just as the mother can choose for the father to PAY child support.


The father does, since the mother is paying her share towards the children in the form of child support.


If he has custody of the children he may be petitioning the court for a child support order against the mother.If he has custody of the children he may be petitioning the court for a child support order against the mother.If he has custody of the children he may be petitioning the court for a child support order against the mother.If he has custody of the children he may be petitioning the court for a child support order against the mother.


Yes. If the father has sole custody or physical custody the mother will be required to pay child support under normal circumstances. Both parents are responsible for supporting their children.


If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children. Their mother has sole legal custody. If the father wants to establish his "parental rights" he will need to establish his paternity where the children are domiciled. Once he has established that he is their father he can request joint custody or a visitation order and the mother can request a child support order if the children are to remain in her physical custody.If the parties want to make the change in custody by consent of the parties he should consult with an attorney to determine how that can be accomplished.If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children.

The parent would get support from the children's father--only while the children are in her custody as minors.


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.


The mother. The father have to prove paternity in court and petition for visitation or custody. He can then also pay child support.


A father can get custody of the children if it can be demonstrated that that is in the best interest of the child. The father being the primary caregiver would help.


If she has custody of the kids. Legal custody.


If the mother has interrupted her career more than the father for her children, surely she has the better argument for custody? Custody should depend on how the children are treated, not on how hard the mother found it/finds it to get a job. The father would probably have to work less when they have custody of the children anyway.


The mother, if married, should file for divorce and request to be awarded sole legal custody of the children. She should also request a child support order.If the parties are not married the mother has sole custody. She should file for child support and an order for DNA testing as soon as possible. The father must help to support the children.In either case the father will be entitled to a visitation order. He can also request joint custody but the court is unlikely to award that unless the parents have a good relationship.The mother, if married, should file for divorce and request to be awarded sole legal custody of the children.

Yes the father would still have to pay child support if he did not have custody of the child and the mother did not work.



An unmarried mother has custody of her children until the father establishes his paternity in court and requests custody or an order for visitation. Once his paternity is established she can request child support.She can move but he may be able to stop her by filing a motion in court.An unmarried mother has custody of her children until the father establishes his paternity in court and requests custody or an order for visitation.

Depends on the circumstances. If you are a single father, without court orders, the mother still has sole custody and control. If married, you have possession, however if you file for child support, you have a presumption of custody.


If the mother is raising the child and the father has custody the mother should return to court and petition for custody and child support, especially if this is a matter of control. She should consult with an attorney or other legal advocate.


Until changed, the current orders remain valid. see my profile


If the father of the children has not paid child support and showed no interest in this particular manner (not just good enough he shows up at the door to see the children) then yes, the mother has every right to move where she wants. If the father has been paying support and can prove it, then it's best to seek legal counsel and he should get part custody of the children.


If the divorce ordered the father to pay support, he owes that support until/unless the order is modified.


No. A child is no one's property. An unmarried mother has sole custody until the father establishes his paternity in court. Once paternity is established the father can petition for custody and/or visitation and the court can prepare a child support order as necessary if the mother retains sole physical custody.No. A child is no one's property.

Having no income is not a reason for making a change in custody. The father should be paying child support so the mother has some income coming into the home.


The fathers financial responsibility to his children does not end because the courts have decided that custody should go exclusively to the mother or others.


Yes as the father has become a defaulter then the mother can get full custody and have the parental rights of the father revoked.


It is not likely the court would grant custody to a parent with no means to support the child(ren). Unless there are unusual circumstances in the situation. One of the main concerns of the court is the children are adequately provided for in terms of shelter, food, clothing, medical care, etc. As well as being loved and nurtured.
