It's normal for a non-custodial parent to provide financial support for their child while they remain in the care of the custodial parent. However, child support costs depend on a number of different factors, including:
- The child's needs - from insurance to education
- The income of the custodial and non-custodial parent
- The child's ordinary standard of living
