The answer is simple:

  • Child support is paid to the parent who has physical custody of the children by the parent who does not support the children in a residential setting on a daily basis. The child support goes toward the expense of providing a home and necessities for the children.
  • Your boyfriend has to pay child support because he is the children's father and therefore legally responsible for the children's support.
  • You and your child have nothing to do with your boyfriend's obligation to pay child support for his other children.
  • Now, the questions that you should consider are: Why should your boyfriend get to not support his children because he has started another family with you? Should he be allowed to leave you eventually, start a third family, and not help support the children he makes with you?

Who pays child support when no legal custody has been established?

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
