Support

Child support payment is a court-ordered amount that the non-custodial parent must pay to the custodial parent to cover a proportionate amount of the child’s expenses, including housing and utilities, food, clothing, education expenses, and other costs. Both parents have an obligation to support their children, both before and after a divorce. State laws differ greatly as to how courts calculate child support payment, and child support orders may be modified only by another court order.
