I assume you are asking if custody changes when a parent gets married to someone else? Custody does not change because of a marriage. If there is any type of court document (divorce decree, child support agreement, etc.) that outlines a custody arrangement nothing changes because one of the parties gets married. Whatever the arrangement was before the marriage, it still stands.
If you are married to the mother, no. Then you share everything naturally. But if you have a child and you are separated or not married to the mother, and you do not have custody of the children, you have to pay child support
The parent with physical custody receives child support from the other parent. If the parties have shared custody the court will use state guidelines to determine if someone pays child support and how much.
Depends on circumstances. A single mother has a presumption of sole custody at the time of the birth of the child. Where married parents are separated, there is a presumption of joint physical custody whether or not support is ordered.
Generally, the parent with the greater amount of physical custody is entitled to child support.
No, if the mother voluntarily gives cutody to someone else, she can no longer be paid child support because she no longer has custody of the child. What happens now is the father can obtain custody because he does have rights or the person who has custody and have legal guardianship can file for assistance in which child support can be included or filed.
He has the same rights as any other father, the fact that he was married to someone else is irrelevant. But since you were not married he needs to establish paternity in court so he can petition for visitation or custody and also pay child support.
Your question could be read in different ways. Child support is intended only for the support of children and their needs. If the children are in the custody of (living with and being supported by) someone who is not the parent on a regular basis, that person must petition the court to be appointed the legal guardian and then petition for a child support order against the parents. If you are the parent then you must have custody in order to get child support. If your children are in the custody of someone else, such as the example provided above, you cannot receive child support.
The mother has legal custody from birth if never married. The father have to go to court to get his parental rights and prove paternity so he can seek visitation, custody and pay child support. The mother is in this case the one who decides what name the child will have since she is the guardian.If the custody is not with father, then after getting the custody , they may change the name.
Child support is court-ordered financial support paid by one parent to the other who has custody of the children, after the parties are separated or divorced, or when the parties were not married.
Depends on the circumstances. If you are a single father, without court orders, the mother still has sole custody and control. If married, you have possession, however if you file for child support, you have a presumption of custody.
