Parents often have joint custody with one parent having physical custody. Generally, the parent with physical custody receives child support from the non-physical-custody parent. There are other arrangements whereby the parents share physical custody. States are required to have child support guidelines and the guidelines will control who pays child support and how much. The court will issue a court order to that effect.

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

Your question could be read in different ways. Child support is intended only for the support of children and their needs. If the children are in the custody of (living with and being supported by) someone who is not the parent on a regular basis, that person must petition the court to be appointed the legal guardian and then petition for a child support order against the parents. If you are the parent then you must have custody in order to get child support. If your children are in the custody of someone else, such as the example provided above, you cannot receive child support.

If two parents share joint custody of a child, but one has physical custody, then the non-custodial parent usually pays child support to help the parent with whom the child lives. It depends on the laws of your state - most states now have an online child support calculator.

Joint Custody and Child SupportJoint legal custody has no effect on child support. With joint physical custody there is still a payment of child support from the higher income parent to the lower income parent, usually determined by a sliding scale based on time with each parent (procedures vary among states). Because both parents provide for the child directly, the payment between parents may be less, but the financial support to the child is the same or higher than with sole custody.

It depends on who has physical custody. Often the parents have joint legal custody, the mother has physical custody and the father has a visitation schedule. In that case she will receive child support. If the child will split time between the parents the state has a formula in the child support guidelines.

In Wisconsin, it depends on who has physical placement of the child. It may also depend on who has the higher income of the both parents. It is possible that even with joint custody you will still have to pay child support to the other parent. Joint custody simply means both parents have equal rights in making decisions for the well-being of the minor child/children. The person with whom the child resides the majority of the time is the person who generally receives support to be used for the child's needs. If the time is equally divided the court will decide if and how any child support will be allocated, based upon income levels of the parents and the needs of the child.

Yes, until they are adopted. If they have to be in foster care first you have to pay. Once adopted the child becomes the adoptive parents child in every way, including financial obligations like child support if the parents were to divorce and have custody agreements.
