You pay child support and college expenses am I entitled to a reduction in support?

It is my understanding that if the noncustodial parent is paying child support in the state of Mo. and the child decides to live on campus/away from custodial parent while attending college and noncustodial parent is paying % of college expenses that include room and board a modification/reduction in child support may be in order. However I would like to see a court case/opinion regarding this matter.

If your child runaway from custodial home and is a minor because she doesn't want to follow rules then the noncustodial parent is off the hook for paying child support to the custodial parent right?

That's an interpretive item meant for a judge. At the minimum, the separated parent should file an emergency motion to modify custody of a child in need of care. You can never stop paying the support without the approval of the court. see link

No, that alone is not a reason to terminate custody. The non-custodial parent should be paying child support.

When a custodial parent dies is child support from a non custodial parent still due?

Of course. Unless the non-custodial parent takes sole custody, the non-custodial parent is still responsible for paying child support to whomever the child goes to. There is no reason the death of a parent should terminate the other parent's child support obligation.

Can a noncustodial parent refuse to give the custodial parent the child back to avoid paying 48 thousand dollars back child support and then try to file for support from custodial parent?

No, and no can he, so there must be a greater issue related here as to the safety of the children. As for being in arrears, in this economy that comes as no shock as men do not know there is free legal help to avoid or reduce arrears from the government. That is what I teach them.

If custodial parent in Pennsylvania remarries can their new spouse's income be included for child support?

The income of a spouse of a custodial parent, can be used in determing a portion of the child support. Because the spouse of a custodial parent is most likely contributing to the expense of the house, utilities and such, the non custodial parent may be intitled to a reduction in support.. this is usually a case that has to be heard by a judge. the income of a non custodial spouse can not be used as they are not contributing to the expenses of the home the children live in. If you think about it, this makes sense. a non custodial parent is paying their share based on the over all expense of the custodial parents home and income.. if the custodial parent is not paying for a portion of those expenses, then an non custodial parent should not have to pay them either.

Does the non-custodial parent need to have insurance on the child when paying child support in Texas?

Yes, if it is so ordered in the child support agreement. If the parent loses their insurance and the custodial parent has the ability to insure the child - it will be possible for the state to order the custodial parent to do so. This may change the amount of support the non custodial parent pays - it is entirely up to the whim of the courts.

Does the noncustodial parent have to pay child support if the custodial parent makes more money than the noncustodial parent?

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.

How do you terminate child support if you are a non custodial parent?

You don't. Child support is by definition, the non-custodial parent paying to help cover the child-rearing expenses incurred by the custodial parent. Support payments are set by the court and the court would have to stop it. If the mother remarries and the new father adopts the child with your permission, then the child support stops.

What if parent paying child support earns less than parent receiving support?

This is dependent on the custody arrangments, but even sole custodial fathers are often ordered to pay. More of then pay than the total number of non-custodial mothers paying, with out without orders.

In Most states child support is separate from custody.

Uunless there was a divorce that stipulates the arangement.

Can a mother deny visitation if the father is paying child support?

Whether or not a parent is paying child support is irrelevant when the issue is visitation rights. If there is a court order for visitation the primary custodial parent must allow it or be found in contempt of court. If there is not a court order in place the custodial parent can make the decision to when, where or if visitation is allowed. Visitation guidelines are usually established during the custodial proceedings.

If a 21 year old full time student lives on their own is the custodial parent entitled to child support?

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

Why still paying child support after age 18 in pa?

There are a couple of reasons why someone might still be paying child support in Pennsylvania after the child reaches his/her majority. The judge could have ordered the noncustodial parent to continue child support until the child reaches the age of 22 or is no longer enrolled in and attending higher educational classes. The noncustodial parent may not have paid the full amount of child support each month or may not have paid child support at all for some time before the child reached his/her majority. In that case, the noncustodial parent must continue paying child support until the arrears plus interest have been fully paid.

It's rare for the custodial parent to have to pay child support, but it does happen. It usually only occurs in one of three situations: 1. The custodial parent makes significantly more than the non-custodial parent. 2. Parenting time is split 50/50 (or close to it). Or 3. The non-custodial parent is paying additional expenses for the child, such as high health-care premiums or child care costs. Your state may have other exceptions to the rule, but yes, exceptions do exist and the custodial parent is sometimes required to pay child support to the non-custodial parent.

If you owe back child support and your child turns 18 who will get the money the child or the custodial parent?

The custodial parent who has had the burden of bringing up the child without the support you were meant to pay will get the funds. However if the sate has been subsidizing your child and the custodial parent when this would not have been necessary if you had payed the support you should have been paying, then the sate (taxpayer) will get the payments it is owed first.

Is it possible for the non-custodial parent to pay child support in advance to avoid paying monthly?
