Can a Florida custodial parent receive child support from the non custodial parent even if the custodial parent owes child support for the same children from a previous case?
That's up to the judge, but generally is only applicable when a father gets custody while owing, as only 7 out of 1000 mothers pay support to custodial fathers.

What do you about support when you are the non-custodial parent and the custodial parent wants to hand over the child to you?
They can't simply "give the child to you." You need to return to the court and have the custody order modified so you'll have legal custody. It will go easier if the current… custodial parent consents to the modification. At that time the current support order should be terminated and you can request child support if you wish.
What if a non-custodial parent is paying child support to a custodial parent for a child who does not even live with the custodial parent?
Contact your child support office or court that issued the childsupport order and request a modification of the child supportorder.
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.
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 e…nd.
If the Custodial parent receives a Large sum of money does that effect the Child Support amount of the Non Custodial Parent in the state of Florida?
No. Even a substantial increase in income can have a limited affect, and than only to extra items. see links below
The parents can agree to waive the unpaid support - the court must approve this after finding it to be in the child's best interest.
Well actually, it depends. A non-custodial parent can still have liberal, defined visitation and if that parent, say has 3 days a week or every weekend, and their income is va…stly lower than the income of the custodial parent then there would be an avenue in many states where that 'non-custodial' parent would be entitled to child support. Again, it would vary on a number of factors including what you mean by non-custodial. If non-custodial includes no physical or legal custody and/or no visitation at all, the avenue seems virtually impossible. However, simply being non-custodial would not be the single defining point. In fact, there wouldn't be a single variable that would determine the answer to this question (particularly as state law were weighed in). Best advice, contact an attorney, many will provide free first consultations.
If non custodial parent owes back child support and the child goes to live with the non custodial parent does the custodial parent at that point have to begin paying child support?
Yes, in most circumstances. However, you need to notify the court of the change in circumstances as soon as possible . The existing child support order and custody order will… remain in effect until the court is notified. You should be aware that any child support arrears that accumulated prior to the modification of the existing court orders still need to be paid.
When child lives full time with non custodial parent does that mean that custodial parent owes child support?
For the state of Tennessee, yes because it depends upon the wages and amount of days spent with each parent.
You can get awarded child support by a judge, but collecting it isan altogether different situation.
Best to go through the FL child support agency or FL district attorney - the State has an interest in this matter.
Of course. Unless the non-custodial parent takes sole custody, thenon-custodial parent is still responsible for paying child supportto whomever the child goes to. There is no …reason the death of aparent should terminate the other parent's child supportobligation.
Can a custodial parent stop the non custodial parents visitation if they are behind on child support?
No. Visitation and child support are 2 separate issues and changing any of the court orders you have to go back to the court that issued them. There might be good reasons why …a parent can not pay all of a sudden and denying the child a parent because of it is not in the best interest of the child. Visitation is not an award for paying child support.

Well no, but if the custodial parent need benefits or financial support form the state the non-custodial parent will be asked by the state for child support. Parents are first… responsible to support their child.
A non-custodial parent fails to file taxes so the custodial parent does not receive the refund for back child support. What can the custodial parent do?
Karma is a great thing. The non-custodial parent will eventually lose if they did not file expressly to avoid the refund going to you. However, look at the IRS site for except…ions which allow not filing.
