Who Has to Pay Child Support?

Navigation:  Home > Family Law> Who Has to Pay Child Support?


Generally, child support is paid by the noncustodial parent, as the custodial parent’s obligations and responsibilities are fulfilled by having custody. This doesn’t necessarily mean that a mother would not have to pay child support to a father who has custody – the mother has the same duty as the father would if he didn’t have sole custody. Moreover, an unmarried father – who is acknowledged as the biological father – will also be responsible for paying child support.
