Father's Rights: Child Support And Visits With Your Children

Supporting a child is something both parents are responsible for doing. The amount of child support that a parent will be responsible for paying will be determined by various factors. A system is used to determine how much child support the non-custodial parent will be responsible for paying. 

When child support is paid by the non-custodial parent, it should be spent on caring for the child. Unfortunately, many custodial parents use the child support funds for their own personal needs. The money should be used to ensure all of the children's needs are met. 

As children grow, they will have various needs, so there are a number of things that will go into consideration when trying to determine how much child support will need to be paid. Some of the things that will be considered when determining child support are listed below:

  • medical/dental expenses
  • school/day care expenses
  • health insurance costs

Visitation Time Even If Child Support Is Not Being Paid

Sometimes when the non-custodial parent has visitation rights, the custodial parent will prevent the children from seeing the other parent. Even if the non-custodial parent is not meeting the ordered child support requirements, he still has the right to have visits with the children if it has been ordered.

Every child deserves to be supported and every child deserves to have both parents involved in their lives. Unfortunately, things do not always work out this way. If you would like a consultation regarding your father's rights, you should not hesitate to contact us today.
