If both parents have joint custody and the child will live with both parents do either of them have to legally pay child support?
Answer . \nOne of the parents would have to file a petition for child support before the court would address the issue.
It depends on a number of different factors. How often do you have the children vs the other parent? What is your income vs the other parent? etc. Child support is supposed to… reflect the type of lifestyle your child may have had if the parents had stayed together. It is also to keep it fair to the parents. If one makes $50 a week and is told to pay $5 in support, but the other makes $1000 a week, asking only $5 from parent #2 wouldn't be fair. It is based on percentage. So even if you have 50% custody and visitation, if you make more money, then the bulk of support for the child will most likely come from you.. Actully its not fair, but we have to pay it because people who dont work hard think it is fair. I work 60 hrs a week and my x wife who left me for another man only works 30 hrs a week. Even tho we make the same money an hr, since I work harder I have to pay the cheating coniving woman.
No. Paying child support is not a reason in and of itself for the court to change the custody order. The parent who wants custody must petition the court for custody and have …a very good reason to compel the court to make such a substantial change. They would need to provide evidence that here has been a change in circumstances since the last custody order was issued by the court and a change in custody is in the best interest of the child. They would need to provide proof that the present custodial parent is unfit.
