My mom pockets child support checks but I don’t live with her or my dad. Do I have a right to the money.?
There is a presumption that the parent receiving child support is providing for the child's needs. You do not have a right to the support if you are a child but your father or the person you are living with could go to a lawyer and ask the court to modify the order and direct child support to the person who is actually supporting you.
