Custody is granted to the parent who will give the child the most stable, safe and caring environment.Needless to say, any parent who has a proven drug problem, will not be looked on favorably by the court. Regardless of their checkbook balance.

Can a non custodial parent get custody when they pay child support?

No. Paying child support is not a reason in and of itself for the court to change the custody order. The parent who wants custody must petition the court for custody and have a very good reason to compel the court to make such a substantial change. They would need to provide evidence that here has been a change in circumstances since the last custody order was issued by the court and a change in custody is in the best interest of the child. They would need to provide proof that the present custodial parent is unfit.
