Often, yes. Even tho the parents have joint custody it is usually the case that one parent has primary responsibility for the child's day-to-day care.

Fathers are frequently ordered to do so there, despite having primary custody. see link below


Generally no, though there is a presumption of primary residential custody for the obligee parent. In states like California, the amount of time the obligor parent has the child affects the amount of child support ordered.ClarificationChild support orders and custody orders are separate. Generally, the parent who pays child support pays it to the custodial parent.


It depends on the type of joint custody. Custody is broken down into two subcategories- legal and physical. Legal custody is the ability to make decisions concerning the child and to act on the child's behalf. Physical custody is who the child lives with. Typically unless the child spends exactly 50 percent of the time with each parent, one parent is considered to have primary custody and the other parent to have secondary custody or visitation rights. Child support is based on who has primary physical custody, and that parent is typically awarded child support from the parent who has the child less since having the child more usually means that you provide for more of their needs as well.

No, the parent that originally had custody of the child no longer recieves child support after the custody arrangements change. However, the court must be notified of the change so the child support order can be modified. The parent with custody receives the child support.

No. Before a support petition can be filed there must be a parent or guardian who is designated as the primary custodian of the minor child/children.


Generally, the parent without physical custody but the court will decide.


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


No. Courts routinely award child support in cases where the parents have joint custody.


Of course not. Child support payments are paid over to the parent with legal physical custody.


If you have primary physical custody you are entitled to support. How much support is figured in a formula based on how much money each of you makes and how many days (or overnights) each of you has time with the child. Depending on the state, if the child stays with the other parent over a certain set amount of time, then that parent is responsible to pay less child support. Most states are trying to push joint physical custody where the child spends 1/2 to 2/3 of the time with the primary caretaker and the rest with the other parent.

No. Custody means the child lives with you. Support means you are paying the parent who has custody.


yes the father should pay for child support. It is his child and wouldn't you want the best for him/her so yeah fathers do have to pay child support!


It would be based upon which parent has primary physical custody.


Prove that the other parent is not fit to have custody of them.


She was awarded custody of the children in her divorce. Custody would normally include child support


No... because if you are paying child support it would be going to the person with physical custody.


If the courts grant legal custody, the custodian shouldn't have to pay child support.


Determining child support has only one goal which is to determine medical, financial and daycare support. Custody is NOT determined when child support is established. To establish child support you have to go to court. Otherwise if the mother was unwed and paternity/custody is not established she automatically has sole custody which entitles you to pay her child support but you are not entitled to visitation, school/dr records etc unless she gives them to you... If custody is not established then the mother has custody


Anyone with a child living with him/her should have legal custody of that child - it can avoid all sorts of problems with the child's education, medical care, etc.


How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?


You may have to pay child support to the one who has custody of your children.
