Won’t child support be another way to separate me from my child(ren)?

No. Child support payments often serve to maintain or promote a healthy relationship between the parent and child, in that the parent paying child support will have an interest or involvement in their children’s lives.

Recent studies show that 90% of fathers who have joint or shared custody pay child support. Seventy-nine percent of fathers who have rights of visitation pay child support. And at the low end, only 45% of fathers who have no visitation or custody pay child support.

This proves that if you pay child support, most likely you will continue and maintain a relationship with the child(ren).
