There are no stipulations in my court order for support should a child switch households, allowing DCS to differentiate the support amount , and suspend a portion when one child moved into the non-custodial parents household. There was never a parenting plan order either. Did DCS have the authority to suspend a portion of the obligation administratively if the court order never stipulated such a suspension should that situation occur?
Yes, and they do so all the time. If the child is acknowledged to be living in the paying parent's home, why should they have to continue to pay for that child?
