The Answer Is It Depends
Video Transcribed: Hi, I’m your Oklahoma fathers’ rights lawyer. I’m here talking about fatherhood and father’s rights… One question we’ve gotten is does a father paid child support with 50/50 custody? And the answer is it depends.
Now, if you have 50/50 physical custody, that would mean that you are receiving a childcare credit for your time, which will greatly reduce the amount of child support paid even if you make more money than she does.
But if both people have 50/50 physical custody, then the calculation for child support will also include determination of their incomes, and both parent’s incomes will determine what the child support number is or should be.
It’s also important to note that if you’re receiving physical 50/50 custody, but you’re not actually on paper for physical 50/50 custody, you can apply for a modification of child support in order to account for the childcare credit that you should be receiving.
If you’ve got any questions about child support, when you’re receiving equal physical custody time, then you can give us a call. If you are looking for the best divorce attorney for a man visit dads.law.
