Most often this occurs because they've been pressured by the non-custodial parent. A common tactic is for the non-custodial parent to threaten to take away custody if he or she has to pay child support. The custodial parent will then consent to not get child support to avoid a costly custody battle.

This is why most states have made child support mandatory. A custodial parent can't decline or give up child support voluntarily in those states.

How do you terminate child support if you are a non custodial parent?

You don't. Child support is by definition, the non-custodial parent paying to help cover the child-rearing expenses incurred by the custodial parent. Support payments are set by the court and the court would have to stop it. If the mother remarries and the new father adopts the child with your permission, then the child support stops.



If a child leaves their home to live with the noncustodial parent is the custodial parent responsible for child support payments?

No, the parent whom the child began residing would need to file for custody and also support before the original custodial parent would be obligated. However there would be no guarantee that a court would grant the motion.


Can a custodial parent stop the non-custodial parents visitation if they are behind on child support?

No they can not. The key here is the "custodial parent" . You may be able to go to court.

If my child is 20 years old and lives on a college campus can the child support go straight to him instead of the mother?

First of all, court ordered child support is paid until a child reaches the age of 18 so it would go to the custodial parent who is caring for the child If this is back child support from before the child turned 18, it would still go to the custodial parent who is on the court order. You would still owe any unpaid balances to the custodial parent.Obviously, the parent supported the child until the age of 18 and is entitled the money she should have been receiving for child support. If you are volunteering the support to help the child with college, then you can give it to the child yourself.

The same process is used as when a non custodial parent resides in the same jurisdiction as the minor child/children.

When the lawsuit is filed a summons will be served upon the non custodial parent (defendant) informing he or she of the suit.


Does the wife of the noncustodial parent that owes child support have to pay the custodial parent child support if the noncustodial parent is not working?

It depends on the state. If your state calculates child support based on household income, then yes, she would be required to pay her husband's child support. If your state calculates child support based on only the non-custodial parent's income, then no, should would not be required to pay. However, her husband would still owe that money, and it will continue to accumulate as a debt until he pays it.

If a pregnant 16-year-old wants to live with the non-custodial parent will the custodial parent have to pay child support?

The minor female could not arbitrarily change residences without the permission of the custodial parent or the court. In addition, the custodial parent would not be required to pay support unless the non custodial parent filed for primary custody and support payments and the court granted the petition. The parent paying child support is legally obligated to continue with the terms of the court order until said order is rescinded or amended. To cease the action, regardless of the change of circumstances would place the parent in a position of contempt of a court order.


Is there a difference in child support between joint and sole custody?

If the parties actually share joint custody and have the child with them 50% of the time, then there may or not be child support depending the the parties' respective incomes. If the parties share parental responsibilty but one of them is considered the "custodial parent" and the other had visitation, then there would be a child support obligation on the part of the non-custodial parent." If one of the parties is the "sole" parent, the child support will probably be the same.
