Child support is the defined as the monthly payments made by the non-custodial parent to help cover the financial care of their child or children. Those payments go to the custodial parent, caregiver, or guardian. In family law, child support is usually arranged during a dissolution of marriage, divorce, or after the determination of paternity and each party will need an attorney to protect their interest.
Typically, there are no gender requirements when it comes to paying child support. For example, a child’s father may pay the mother or mother can pay the father. Where there is joint custody, the child is considered to have two custodial parents instead of only one, and then one of the custodial parents will still be deemed responsible for paying monthly child support.
This periodic payment is meant to help cover the day-to-day caring of the child/children such as doctor’s appointments, food, and school supplies.
