Until a child turns 18 both parents are financially responsible for that child. In the event of divorce, both parents continue supporting the child financially and therefore a child support system is implemented. When deciding the child support arrangement a variety of factors are taken into consideration (e.g., income of both parents, who is in custody of the child, and other specifics to the situation).
