Who Pays Child Support?
Child support is payable by the parent without the care of the child to the parent who is caring for
the child. The support must be paid as specified in the court order.
The paying parent does not get to give gifts or trade-offs for example food, in place of support.
Such attempts are normally viewed as ‘controlling’.
A court may order a parent who is not a biological parent to pay child support.
In most cases, Child support is payable by a non-custodial parent to the custodial parent.
