In Ohio child support differs by counties. According to my husband's case they are not allowed to use my income to figure the amount of support he pays to his ex.No.
The new spouse is not responsible for the support of children from a previous relationship of his or her partner.
In community property states the court in some cases can use the combined income of a couple who remain married when it pertains to support of a child born as a result of the husband's infidelity.
Not that I have seen. They SHOULD impute income to her based on her age, education and past earning ability. But generally that only applies to a man. The mother can claim nearly any absurdly low amount and the court will accept it. The man however can be unemployed due to no fault of his own, have absolutely no income, and the court will impute income at what ever he was earning at his highest point. Then they will take his license, passport, etc, and jail him when he is unable to pay. And he is not afforded a lawyer to represent him because this is not a CRIMINAL case. Never mind he is still in jail. But he has "the keys" to the jail if he pays the support that he couldn't pay before he was locked away. Debtors prison?
If a father refuses to pay child support, he's sent to jail and will not be let out until he pays the child support.
The parents of the child are liable for support - not their spouses.
Not really. It depends on the situation.
Divorce is something that happens between spouses, not between parents and children. A child's refusal to see the father does not affect the father's child support obligation.
Yes. The custodial father has a right to child support from the mother depending on their respective economic circumstances. Many mothers pay child support.
Her father, Bobby Brown refuses to take her off life support and is hoping for a miracle.
What country are you in?
The same if he's not paying at all.
If the father refuses, a default order can be entered against him. Mothers use the right of privacy to prevent the test see links below
Single mothers have sole custody by default. Married mother must address it with the court. Non-custodial mothers can still get a child support award from the father.
In order to pay child support there would've been a DNA test taken to determine that you really are the father. If you can prove you are not the father with a new DNA test you can go to court and stop the child support. If the mother refuses to help with the DNA test you can get a court order for it.
