    Default Child support

    Should a non custodial parent have to pay additional child support if custodial parent consistently reinforces to the child that said child should stay living with the custodial parent?

    I think that child support should be paid regardless of circumstance.

    I agree jakois. Child support should be paid regardless of circumstance. It's also paid in arrears so whatever you the custodial parent chooses to spend that money on is up to them.

    Okay.. Scenario:
    Bio dad wants DS to live with him. Custodial parent is bio mum. Mum constantly drills into the child that he should stay with her, makes plans for high school with no consultation with bio dad and sets it up so bio dad really has no say.
    Bio dad is fed up with having no input and wants DS to live with him as DS has lived with bio mum for 8 years and contact has been very limited due to the choices bio mum made with regard to where she lived. Bio dad wants to throw his hands in the air and just wants a bit of fairness. DS is slowly being alienated from bio dad.
    There are court orders in place with usual conditions re schooling and access fur bio dad every second weekend, one alternate weeknight and half of school hols.

    Of course child support should be paid. They should stick to the court order if they can not come to a mutually agreeable scenario.

    Can the father not ask for mediation if he is not happy with the current arrangements? If they live too far away it can be done over the phone.

    By additional I mean more than what it used to be. They used to have 50/50 but she elected to move some distance away .. Not very far but far enough to make it hard to do 50/50 in terms of schooling.. Mind you, the school is 1km from her house and 40km from bio dads.

    If he is still unhappy then the only option is to go to court and let the court decide. If he was to go this path then refusing to pay child support would not be looked on favourably.
