The Person I Am Divorcing Is Not The Biological Parent Of My Child. Can I Still Collect Child Support From My Spouse?
The person I am divorcing is not the biological parent of my child. Can I still collect child support from my spouse? No. If you married your spouse after your child was born, and your spouse has not adopted your child, your spouse will not be obligated to pay child support
Yes. A move out of state will not end your right to receive child support. However, the amount of child support could be changed if other circumstances change, such as income or costs for exercising parenting time.
If My Spouse Has Income Other Than From An Employer, Is It Still Possible To Get A Court Order To Withhold My Child Support From His Income?
