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.
It seems unlikely that a non-custodial relative would have "standing" to request a change in child support.
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.
because the custodial parent passed away,
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.
No, they are separate issues. If the custodial parent stops visitations they would be in violation of a court order. The custodial parent must address the child support arrears as a separate matter by filing a contempt order with the court.
The custodial parent who has had the burden of bringing up the child without the support you were meant to pay will get the funds. However if the sate has been subsidizing your child and the custodial parent when this would not have been necessary if you had payed the support you should have been paying, then the sate (taxpayer) will get the payments it is owed first.
Of course. The child is still your child and you must continue to pay child support unless the new spouse legally adopts your child. In that case, your parental rights would end.
Yes, child support would continue even if the custodial parent loses his or her job and is collecting child support.
If there is a current order for support the custodial parent would need to file suit to have the amount increased regardless of the circumstances of the non custodial parent.
The custodial parent, it is assumed that he or she supported the child with their income. If however a state agency was involved in the support of the child that agency would receive the arrearages.
No. If there is a child support order that means a state court has jurisdiction over the child. If the parent who is paying child support has any parental rights of custody or visitation the custodial parent would need the NC parent's consent and court approval to move out of state. The existing orders would have to be modified.No. If there is a child support order that means a state court has jurisdiction over the child.

If the child goes to live with a non custodial parent, then the non custodial parent has custody. If you are asking about legal custody, the non custodial parent would have to petition the courts to change the custody order.
No they can not. The key here is the "custodial parent" . You may be able to go to court. But if you keep the child and you are not the custodial parent and there is a court order saying the other parent is the custodial parent, all that person has to do is call the police, and the non custodial parent would have to give up the child.
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.
Yes! Why would you want to keep that from the "custodial parent" anyway?
The NCP's parents are not responsible for their son's child support.
A custodial parent is the parent who has custody of the child. Usually, that would be both parents. A residential parent is the parent who the child lives with the most.
No, that would be violating the court order. The child is a minor and is not allowed to decide and the custodial parent must follow the court order. Any changes in visitation, custody or child support must be made through the court that issued the original order.
Yes. The non-custodial parent will then be owed the support while child is in there care. But it doesnt relenquish them from their prior debt. If the monies is owed direct to you and not a child supporting agency you can come to an agreement with the other party to resolve the debt and have it entered into a court agreement.
The same process is used as when a non custodial parent resides in the same jurisdiction as the minor child/children. The custodial parent or legal guardian would file suit in the appropriate state court for an order of support. When the lawsuit is filed a summons will be served upon the non custodial parent (defendant) informing he or she of the suit.
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.
In some states the custodial parent can ask for child support past age 18 when the child is in college so they can finish.
I would check the local laws - In Minnesota, the custodial parent must have permission from the non- custodial parent to move out of state.
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.
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.
