Child Support - Who pay the child support? Mostly, noncustodial parent (NCP) pay the child
support to custodial parent or guardian. When the parents are not together, and one of them has legal
custody of the child, that parent can file a petition in Family Court to ask the other parent to pay child
support. It's no reason to void for the parental responsibility. Child support is based on the policy that
parents are obligated to pay for the support of their children, even when the children are not living with
both biological parents. The amount of money that the court requires one spouse to pay to the other
who has custody of the children born of the marriage, judge would be concerning of the money amount
could coverage children education, discipline, health, extracurricular and summer activities, religious
training, medical and dental care, and their welfare etc.
Generally, the support continues until a child turns 18 or 21, depending on the states. In many
jurisdictions, people whose have to obligation child support s go into arrears, in a few states they can
even be imprisoned. (FQAs of child support # 2)

How is the Amount of Child Support Determined?
The amount of child support will be based on the States Guidelines requiring the non-custodial parent
(NCP), under normal circumstances, to pay child support based on a percentage of income of both
parents, other biological children in the home, other court-ordered child support payments and day care
and health insurance costs.
Example One; South Carolina Child Support Guidelines - Once the amount of child support is
established, the CP(Custodial Parent) or NCP ( Non-Custodial Parent) has the right to request that the
Child Support Enforcement Division (CSED) for services. They review the child support order every
three years. The review may indicate that an upward or downward modification of child support is
warranted. If your child support case is not a SCDSS South Carolina Department of Social Services
case, you should contact the Family Court where your child support is paid for advice and/or
assistance with a review.

Example Two; New York Child Support Worksheet - The Child Support basis for determining a monthly
support amount is best achieved and to utilizes by referring to New York child support worksheet and
defined by state law. In determining the appropriate support amount the court will consider the
following factors, but not limited to: 1. financial resources of the parties involved, including the
children. 2. The standard of living prior to the divorce. 3. The physical and mental health of the
children. 4. The tax ramifications. 5. Educational needs of the parents and children. 6. Other children
outside the marriage each parent may have.

The court will usually ask for proof of the expenses, such as for food, rent, clothing, medical
costs, child care, and education. The parents must give the court their most recent tax returns and
tell what they earn and spend. The court will listen to all of the evidence from both parents. It will
then decide how much the parent who does not have custody has to pay for child support. The
custodial parent (CP) can request the Family Court Clerk Office to make another court schedule and
court locate if the non-custodial parent (NCP) lived out of state. You have the right to hire a lawyer.
If you cannot afford to do this and want a lawyer, ask the Family Court. They can assign one at no

The judge can also protect your children in the order of protection. For example, you may ask
that any visitation with the children be supervised. In Family Court, the judge can order the
respondent to pay temporary support and to give you legal custody of any children you may have with
the respondent. In any proceeding for the award of child support, there is a rebuttable presumption
that the amount of the award which would result from the application of the guidelines is the correct
amount of child support to be awarded. A different amount may be awarded upon a showing that
application of the guidelines in a particular case would be unjust or inappropriate. - Copyright © 2010 All Rights Reserved. Terms of Use . Privacy Policy
