California family lawyer Erin McGaughey explains how neither parent has to pay child support if they agree to those terms, but also how it’s always modifiable and able to be re-negotiated.
Can divorcing spouses agree that neither of them will pay child support?
The right to child support runs with the child, so it’s always modifiable. The parents can agree to no child support right now, and then, if things change in a few months, maybe child support would be appropriate. They can always agree as to the appropriate child support, whether it’s more or less than what our guidelines would otherwise say.
