    Does a child support order determine legal custody?

    Re: Does a child support order determine legal custody?

    I wish to inform you that child support order only determines amount of child support to be paid by one parent to another. In case of child custody a child custody order from court is required to determine which parent will keep child. In some circumstance there may be a single order from court in which it may determine both the issues. Hence child support order may not determine child custody unless court order state in it which parent will keep child.

      No, they are separate issues. Keep in mind legal custody (usually 50/50) is not the same as physical custody.

        It is only an interim order and it is not final as any party can bring an amendment based on the situation. So a child custody is not determined by a support order.

          A support order simply attempts to balance out the inequity of expenses in raising children. It is entirely separate from custody. It is possible for a person to only have occasional visitation and receive support if the income disparity is very extreme.

          I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

          Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

              Can I lose visitation over a child support payment issue? Or are they 2 separate things?
