Child Support

Is it all right for a 17-year-old in Kansas who is still in school to live on her own and the mother to still receive child support?

No, the legal age of majority in Kansas is 18, child support is for the child not for the custodial parent. Although the mother may be giving the funds to the young lady for her living expenses, if the minor has not been legally emancipated or deemed a ward of court order (in which case support money would be kept by the state), she should be residing with a custodial parent or legal guardian. The parent paying the support should contact the attorney who handled the original support issue or the clerk of the court where the order was issued to learn the options available. DO NOT arbitrarily cease suppport payments as it is always a possibility you could be found in violation of a court order, always wait until you have obtained qualified legal counsel.

The child support is to "support the child"...figure it out.

Spousal support or alimony, possibly. Child support, no.

A child is eligible to receive child support through its mother as soon as it is born.

The mother cannot receive child support for a child who is over the age of 18. However, if the father owes money from before, that money has to be paid to the mother, even if the child is over 18. The father owes child support whether or not he sees the child.

Yes, nothing stops a child support payment. The amount received is regardless of the financial status of the mother or the new husband.

First, there is no such thing as an illegal mother. Any parent, male or female, single, married, divorced or separated, may receive child support.

Child support law assumes that one or both parents are absent.

Yes, child support would continue even if the custodial parent loses his or her job and is collecting child support.

User Avatar

Yes if the grandparents do not report it. Legally no.

NOT if you owe back support. It doesn't matter how old the child is or whether or not she has children IF you owe back support you MUST pay it

YES,THEY SHOULD. A CUSTODIAL MOTHER GET'S CHILD SUPPORT WHY WOULDNT THE FATHER. IT WORK'S BOTH WAY'S.

User Avatar

Should be, but only 15% of custodial fathers get a child support order, of which only 5% receive anything, while another 9% are still required to pay child support to the mother.

No. If the mother is no longer providing more than half of the child's support, then she no longer gets the child support.

In general, support is paid to the parent or other caretaker who has custody of the child (or to the State as reimbursement for assistance furnished).

Ask the father to request a modification, however you must also file against the mother.

User Avatar

Yes, if the non-parent has legal custody of the child.

The mother needs to seek a child support order herself by filing a complaint in the local family court. The child support unit enforces child support orders issued by a family court.The child support unit can help the custodial parent in establishing and/or enforcing an order for support.

A mother can stop child support in Texas, provided she does not receive public assistance. She must close the case with the Texas AG. Beware, that she can do this and could later attempt to open it again. I would go to an attorney if this is the case.
