Definition: Child support is money paid by one parent to the other for the purpose of providing financial support to a child or children. Most frequently, child support is paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent, but this is not always the case. In addition, each state uses a different formula for calculating child support. Parents who owe child support but are unable to pay should consider filing for a child support modification.
