If the kids go to visit the non custodial parent for a whole

This answer was rated:

If the kids go to visit the non custodial parent for a whole month, does the non-custodial parent still pay the custodial parent child support for that month?

ScottyMacEsq :

Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.

ScottyMacEsq :

Yes. Payment of a child support obligation and exercising visitation rights are two separate issues, which are treated as such. A child support obligation is still due each month, regardless if the non-custodial parent is able to exercise court ordered visitation or how long that is.

ScottyMacEsq :

So the non-custodial parent will have to pay a certain amount per pay period / month, regardless of the actual amount of time that month that he/she has the children.
