Abstract Is paying child support a moral or a legal obligation? It’s both! Supporting a child is the moral obligation of both parents; not one or the other; but both. Most courts order the non custodial parent to pay support in an attempt to defray the expenses incurred by a custodial parent when raising a child. Paying child support becomes a legal obligation when the courts get involved.

Child Support; A Moral or Legal Obligation? Every boy and girl deserves the best quality of life available to them as they grow up. In today’s society with numerous single family homes it is a struggle to raise children both emotionally and financially. If one parent fails to meet his/her obligations it does have a direct reflect upon the parent raising the child. There are few parents who can reach a total agreement for child support, stick to that agreement, and pay on time every month. Since this is the case, there are alternatives. This parent or party who is caring for the child can seek such help through obtaining a court order for child support. There are child support agencies as well as the courts. It is a parent’s moral obligation to support their child. Supporting a child is very important. Does a court order mean the money for support will be paid? No. Currently in the U.S. there is over $89 billion dollars owed in back child support.
