Who Pays Child Support?
Federal and state laws require both the father and mother to pay child
support. In most cases the parent awarded primary
custody of their child is paid child support by the other parent. If both parties
are married at the time the child is conceived, then both parties are
responsible for supporting their child in a divorce. If not married at
the time, the court will order the parentage to be determined in order
for the child to have a legal father.
