And you are? If the parents were not married the mother has custody until the father can petition for it after he has proved paternity in court. If married you have equal custody. Just living with you does not give you custody. it has to go through court.

Do you have to continue paying child support if your child lives with you?

If the main part of the custody has been moved to the other parent it's a good idea to look over the custody agreement and with that the child support and to who should get it. If it's just temporary the parents should be able to sort it out themselves. The support should go to the person the child lives with since it's for the child and especially if the child lives full time with one parent.


Will you receive more child support with sole custody as opposed to joint custody?

You may since sole custody implies the child lives with that parent 100% of the time. With joint custody the child may dwell with the other parent for part of the time or with one parent all of the time with visitations for the other parent. It depends on the details and the state child support guidelines.


What is the difference between having full cusody and having primary custody?

Full custody is defined as one parent of a child having sole control over a minor child with the other having no custodial rights. Primary custody means that both parents share custody (also known as joint custody) but the primary custodian is the parent that the child spends most fo their time with/lives with on a regular basis. In other words, the parent that is not the primary custodian is the one that has the visitation rights.


Does the father have custody of he child even though the child lives with him but both the parents were never married. Can the father come after the mother for full custody.?

With no courts orders in place, the father has no legal right to have the child living with him. The mother has sole custody and control in all states, and he can still be obligated to pay support for this time period. He needs to immediately file a motion with the court to establish his rights and for at least temporary custody, pending a full hearing, before she gets wind of the fact that she can take the child away from him at any time. see links below.

How does joint child custody affect child support in Alabama?

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.


Can a parent that is behind in child support get joint custody of a child whos mother already has full legal custody?

Certainly some evidence of responsibility (ie paying child support, job, time spent with the child) would help your case. Joint custody, however, is not just for the purpose of reducing child support; infact the child support you pay is nowhere near what it costs to raise a child. Consider the ramifications of your sharing custody--what is in the best interests of the child??


Does a father have the right to take full custody of a child if the mother is terminally ill and the step father is providing all the care?

That is up to a court to decide. The father cannot take that action on his own. He need to petition for full custody. However, if the child has been in a stable and loving home, and well cared for, the court is not likely to terminate the mother's custody at this terrible time unless it can be proven the child is endangered or being neglected.That is up to a court to decide.
