If my son’s mother no longer has custody of my son and I don’t have custody do I still have to keep paying child support?

Q: My son’s mother lost custody of my son and I don’t have custody is it mandatory for me to keep paying child support. I’m confused.

A: You wouldn’t necessarily continue paying child support to her – but if the child’s in the care of a relative by her designation, then it may be a “change of payee” situation. If the child’s in foster care or an institution, then it’s possible the agency or institution may want you to pay child support as restitution. Call a Bronx Child Support attorney for more info.
