If you have joint custody of your children do you have to pay child support while they spend the summer with you in NY?
This is an issue which should have been addressed in the original support agreement. If there is no stipulation as to how support should be administered when the children are …with you. You are still obligated. You can however, have the order modified to read, that when you have physical custody the set payments at that particular time be used for the children's benefit.
Can a person who has primary residence in a joint custody be required to pay a child support portion?
Family Court when deciding issues such as child support, takes many factors into consideration. Where the child(ren) live for the majority of the time. Which parent has the la…rgest expendable income. How joint custody is set up. For instance, if the child(ren) live with you during the school year. But, with the other parent during holidays, summer vacation, etc. Each parent could be liable for paying support for the length of time the child is in their care.
If you and your ex have joint custody is it true when his lawyer says he does not have to pay child support?
Answer . \nIn some instances it depends upon the living arrangements. If the child/children live with both parents equally, then child support is not always ordered by the …court. However the issue of medical coverage, educational expenses, and so on will need to be addressed. Generally if the child/children reside with one parent the majority of the time, child support is awarded to that parent. Also in some cases, a disparity in incomes can play a part in whether or not support is warranted.
Can an unwed mother who has joint but not physical custody be ordered by a court to pay child support?
Answer . \nUnwed, married and separated or divorced - ANY mother can be liable for child support depending on her financial situation and who has primary physical.\n. \nC…hild support is decided in most cases based on a formula. The parents' incomes are totalled (say 600/week and 1000/week=1600/week) and then a percentage is factored as the estimate of what you should be devoting to your children. So 1 child = 30% of your income = $480 if your combined income was $1600. Now in this case the parent making $1000 contributes 62.5% of the total income of the parents, so that parent contributes 62.5% of the $480 = $300 - the other parent contributes $180. If the parent with primary physical custody is the parent making $600/week then child support of $300/week or $1200/month would be the award in this formula. If the other parent has the primary physical custody, the child support award would be $180/week or $720/month.\n. \nIt is a common misconception that the parent who makes less cannot be liable for support.\n. \nNot all cases are decided on these types of formulas and especially when there are lawyers for one or both parents other factors may come into play.\n. \nThis formula and these calculations are an example and not representative of the actual amounts or percentages the law dictates for child support in any particular region. To find out the actual formula you will need to contact a lawyer, look up your state and local laws, or contact the family court in your region.
It depends on a number of different factors. How often do you have the children vs the other parent? What is your income vs the other parent? etc. Child support is supposed to… reflect the type of lifestyle your child may have had if the parents had stayed together. It is also to keep it fair to the parents. If one makes $50 a week and is told to pay $5 in support, but the other makes $1000 a week, asking only $5 from parent #2 wouldn't be fair. It is based on percentage. So even if you have 50% custody and visitation, if you make more money, then the bulk of support for the child will most likely come from you.. Actully its not fair, but we have to pay it because people who dont work hard think it is fair. I work 60 hrs a week and my x wife who left me for another man only works 30 hrs a week. Even tho we make the same money an hr, since I work harder I have to pay the cheating coniving woman.
Probably not. Unless both ex-spouses happen to earn absolutely identical incomes there will usually always be a salary discrepancy that will be be made up by support payments.…
Yes, this is an overal cost load for your portion of the child's care. It is independent of where the child is unless both parties agree to changes.. It also depends on what …kind of custody you're talking about, physical of legal? Legal custody has nothing to do with child support If you have 50/50 physical custody, that's way different Child support may not even be exchanged. It all depends on how much money is made by BOTH parents.
You need to check the laws in your state, your court orders and your separation agreement.
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 p…ays child support and how much.
Child support is paid to the wife so she can have money to raise the child. Maybe your husband made more money than his wife when they were still married. It's all in divorce …papers. Talk to your husband about it.
That is determinant of differences in income as well as living situations. see links below.
Often, yes. Even tho the parents have joint custody it is usually the case that one parent has primary responsibility for the child's day-to-day care.
I don't think so because my parents have joint custody and my dad pays child support. But my mom might have custody of me and just let me see my dad so he's always a part of m…y life!
If an order for child support is filed and after calculations are performed, it is determined that you owe it, provided you are the parent of the child (either through giving …birth in the case of the mother, acknowledging parenthood voluntarily by signing the birth certificate or other legal affidavit or via court ordered paternity testing) or you are acting in loco parentis (the legal doctrine under which an individual assumes parental rights, duties, and obligations via court order, common law relationship with the mother or adoption).
A father with joint legal custody has the right to be included in all important decisions regarding his child. He also has a right to a visitation schedule that must be follow…ed by the custodial parent.
What rights does a mother have who pays child support and has joint custody of the kids but doesn't get to see them have?
If the joint custody order is broken that is breaking the law. Go back to court and let them know.
