Generally, child support is paid by the noncustodial parent, as the custodial parent’s obligations and responsibilities are fulfilled by having custody. This doesn’t necessarily mean that a mother would not have to pay child support to a father who has custody – the mother has the same duty as the father would if he didn’t have sole custody. Moreover, an unmarried father – who is acknowledged as the biological father – will also be responsible for paying child support.
