Do you always have to pay child support?

The short answer is yes.

Child support is mandatory and it is the right of the child, not the parent, to receive support. It is imposed by the court to ensure that children are economically support by both their parents. Even if your spouse agrees to not ask for child support, that arrangement will not be upheld by the court.
