Thank you for the reply. You do not have to get a copy but if you are paying in cash and/or a way that does not allow you to document payment, then you should. This way, if the other party comes back and claims you failed to pay, you have evidence to support and show that you did.

Can you're son be a witness for payment of Child support?
Expert:  FamilyAnswer replied 8 months ago.

How old is the child? Did they witness the exchange of money and did they actually see and know how much was paid?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
sometimes. But he knows he can't come if i don't pay. And he is twelve

Child support and child visitation are separate issues. Even if you do not pay, the other parent can not withhold visitation.
