As with child custody, child support is an issue that may be independent of a divorce case. Separated parents may file for child support even if a divorce action is not pending. By the same token, parents who have long been divorced may initiate child support actions. Furthermore, many child support cases involve parents who have never been a married couple.
Whether or not you have custody of your children, and in the cases that you may not see your children, as a parent you are still responsible for supporting them financially. Keep in mind that child custody and support are two different issues.
