The back child support is still a debt. The estate should make a claim against the father. The money is still owed to the mother. Whether your wife receives any of it will depend on the estate and what bills are owed.

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, its child support. If the money is not used to support the child then its being misused. Alimony would be to support you. If the father is looking after the child, then he should not be paying child support to the mother - she doesn't have the cost of looking after the child at that time. In fact, the mother may well be in a position to send chilod support to the father - it goes both ways and she is responsible for the child just as much as the father is.


yes. the father can still see his child. the mother is just refusing money. my father didn't pay child support but my brother and i still went to his house every other weekend. The father is still allowed the right to see his child. The best way is to find a time that is both convenient for the mother and father.



A modification need to be done to transfer the obligation from the father to the mother. see link below


If the mother isn't receiving any kind of assistance from the government, she can waive the right to child support from the father, but it wouldn't be in the child's best interest. Child support is the child's right, not the mother's. If the mother were really well off financially, or if she didn't want the father anywhere around the child, she could waive the child's right to support. The father has a responsibility to help take care of the child he helped bring into this world.ClarificationGenerally, in the US, a mother cannot legally waive a child's right to support from their father. A child is legally entitled to be supported by both parents. However, the mother can choose to not involve the court if the parents were never married or if there will be no divorce action filed. However, if the mother doesn't want the money she should put in a college fund for the child.


You should consult an attorney to discuss your options and whether a child can sue for back child support in your state. There may be a statute of limitations.


Normally you would not be allowed to relinquish your rights just to avoid paying support, but, you are allowed to do so if the mother doesn't want the support money.


Pay your child support through either the courts or the State disbursement unit. DO NOT give any money or anything else to the obligee unless you want it to be considered a gift.


First, the child does not have the right to make that decision, so the mother is not obligate to send the money. Only a court can approve the child can live there, than reverse the order. see links below


Money will rarely if ever be a consideration for the court with regard to the best interest of the child. That is why the non-custodial parent will pay child support. If the mother is a good parent other than that, it is very unlikely that a court would remove the child from her.


No, only the parent (in this case I assume the mother), who he owed the money to can do that.


That is up to the child's parents to figure out. The father can do yard work and odd jobs to earn money to support his child. The mother can find part time jobs outside of school hours and they both can share child care.That is up to the child's parents to figure out.

The Child Support Agency sends a form to the mother asking for details about the child's father, it is compulsory for the mother to give these details. It is also compulsory for the father to pay to support their child, I am not sure if there is a way around it. I am quite sure they don't ask any other relatives.


It all depends on WHO the arrears are being paid to. If the father was paying support directly to the mother, the back support/arrears would go to the mother. The support was never owed to the child, who has no standing in it. The payments are supposed to assist the mother by helping her to raise the child until the legal age of adulthood or whatever age was specified in the support decree. The support money belongs to her and if she chooses to turn it over to the child that his her business. Legally, the child has no claim on it. ON THE OTHER HAND: If the arrears are being paid to the state - the father is simply reimbursing the state for spending taxpayers money to support her for all the time he did not pay, and neither the mother nor the child has any claim on it.


No. The money isn't for the mother. The money is for supporting the child. Back child support belongs to the estate of the deceased and will eventually benefit the child. And even if the child should die, the back child support does not go away.


I guess the question is why wouldn't she want to accept child support from her child's father? IF anything there is a moral obligation by BOTH parents to support and raise the child.Generally, a child is legally entitled to the support of their non-custodial parent. If the custodial parent doesn't "need" the money then it should be held in a college savings account for the child.


I would assume the mother pays her daughter the child support since the child cost money. If the move is permanent you have to speak to the court and have it changed so it goes to her daughter instead.


Sue for child support? That would be up to the mother to do. And if she did sue, she would be the one to get the money if she won, not the young adult child since the mother was the one who raised and supported the child.


The age of the parents has no bearing on child support. All the State cares about is who are the biological parents, who has custody, and how much money does each parent make. You get child support by filing a child support case with the Attorney General's office in your state.


The father should return to the venue that issued the order for support, with proof of his income, and ask for a modification.SEE LINK BELOW


now that you are married to the father of your child he doesn't pay child support but pays no gives more money to support yours and his child and running the household. good luck


You go back to court and file the papers to do so. The forms are readily available if you want to file them yourself.Another PerspectiveHowever, you should be aware that in the United States most jurisdictions will not allow a mother to waive child support from the child's father. The reason is that the child is entitled to the support of both parents. If the mother doesn't need to money then it should be deposited in the child's name, perhaps for college or whatever the child decides when they reach the age of majority.Also, if the mother is receiving any type of financial assistance the state will pursue child support from the father.


You can't. Child support is court ordered and family services handles payments. The money is to support children your father has produced. It is his obligation to pay the support.


Yes since there is only so much money that can be taken for child support regardless of the number of children. The limit is 25% of a persons wage can be taken for child support. The courts can not take more then 25% of a persons income even if there are a hundred children.
