As Salaamu Alaikum,
In the case of a divorce, what are a man’s child support responsibilities to his kids?
Bismillahi wa billahi at Tawfeek
Wa Alaikum As Salam
At all times, the father of the child is responsible for maintaining the child. In the case of a female, until she marries. And in the case of a healthy male, until he reaches puberty. In the case of a disabled child, male or female, the father is permanently responsible.
If the child is at a suckling age and the mother is unwilling or unable to suckle the child, the father should find someone to suckle the child even if he has to pay a wage to the wet nurse.
