Why do I have to pay child support on a dead child?
You don't. The child's death should be reported to the court accompanied by a certified death certificate. The court should be able to assist you in petitioning to terminate the child support order.
When a child is abandoned by a parent receiving child support how does that child get the child support?
The persons in custody of the child must file for legal guardianship and request the court modify the child support order. The person needs legal standing to receive child support.
Do you have to pay child support if you give up your parental rights to a child if the child is living with the other parent?
Usually you have to continue pay even if you give up your parental rights, yes, unless the other parent agrees to you not paying anymore.
Do you have to pay child support if the mother is in prison and the grand parents have the child and won't let you see the child?
Yes. But don't send the money to the grandparents - send it to the courts or the State disbursement unit. You may go to court to require the grandparents to grant visitation.
Can a father of a child sue for child support if he does not have custody of that child?
Of course not. Child support payments are paid over to the parent with legal physical custody.
