The amount of money that the non-custodial parent pays to the custodial parent to help pay for the every day needs of the child(ren) such as housing, food and clothing. Return to List
An amount of money paid by one parent to the other for the support of a child. Under the Federal Child Support Guidelines, there is a presumption that this amount consists of the â€œtable amountâ€ of support, determined by the child support tables, plus any contribution to section 7 â€œspecial or extraordinary expensesâ€ such as child care, some education and medical expenses, or certain extracurricular expenses. ( See also table amount of child support and special or extraordinary expenses.)
Court-ordered payments from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent that are not tax deductible by the non-custodial parent, nor includable in the custodial parent's taxable income.
This term refers to the money paid by one parent to the other to help cover a child's living expenses. Although this may seem straightforward on the surface, determining a person's income on which to base support payments and deciding what expenses qualify as "add ons” to basic child support can be problematic.
Amount payable to a custodial parent, often by court order, by a non-custodial parent on behalf of a minor child or children. Support payments generally are not taxable income to the recipient or deductible by the payer.
Money paid by one former spouse to another to cover the cost of raising children. These payments are neither tax-deductible for the person who pays them nor taxable income for the one who receives them.
The right all children have to be supported by their parents until the children reach the age of majority.
Periodic payments made under a divorce decree or a written separation agreement for the support of the children.
These are payments made under a divorce or separation agreement for the support of a child. The payments are neither deductible by the person who pays them nor considered taxable income to the person who receives the money.
The entitlement of all children to be supported by their parents until the children reach the age of majority or become emancipated -- usually by marriage, by entry into the armed forces or by living independently. Many states also impose child support obligations on parents for a year or two beyond this point if the child is a full-time student. If the parents are living separately, they each must still support the children. Typically, the parent who has custody meets his or her support obligation through taking care of the child every day, while the other parent must make payments to the custodial parent on behalf of the child -- usually cash but sometimes other kinds of contributions. When parents divorce, the court almost always orders the non-custodial parent to pay the custodial parent an amount of child support fixed by state law. Sometimes, however, if the parents share physical custody more or less equally, the court will order the higher-income parent to make payments to the lower-income parent.
A legal responsibility that both parents have to provide adequate financial support for the children until each reaches the age of emancipation (In NC, this is at the age of 18). The goal is to keep the children in the same quality of lifestyle that they would have experienced had the divorce not taken place. In the NC, the following are considered when determining an appropriate amount for support: The financial resources of each parent and that of the child's. The age and health of each parent. The income and earning capabilities of each parent. The willingness both parents demonstrate to allow visitation. The impact on each parent maintaining two households. The child's educational needs, higher education not withstanding. The age and health of the child. The possibility of the child obtaining employment. The tax liabilities of each parent. The desire on the part of each parent to have sole or joint custody. The employment stability and potential of each parent.
In many countries, child support or child maintenance is the ongoing obligation for a periodic payment made by a non-custodial parent to a custodial parent, caregiver or guardian, for the care and support of children of a relationship or marriage that has been terminated. In family law, child support is often arranged as part of a divorce, marital separation, dissolution, annulment, determination of parentage or dissolution of a civil union and may supplement alimony (spousal support) arrangements.
