I have many clients come in and what they want is called shared custody, essentially 50/50. If that has been the history, that both the mother and the father have been giving primary care to the children, then that is absolutely what should be continued if possible. That’s a great idea. I do have clients come in with the misconception that if they step up to the plate and have the children half the time, that they won’t have to go and pay child support; that has absolutely nothing to do with it. Whoever makes more money, bottom line, is going to end up paying child support.
