    Answered . Yes. In order to get relief from the obligation to pay support while the child is in your custody, the Order of child support would have to have specific language in it relieving the non-cusotdial parent from the obligation. Absent that language, you would need to get a court order relieving you of the obligation for the period of time the child is with the non-custodial parent.
