If both parents share custody of the children, does either have to pay child support?

Child support obligations depend on the each parent’s income and amount of time (number of overnights per year) spent with the child(ren).  Another key factor in child support calculations is which party pays the child’s health insurance and medical expenses, child care and education costs, and other expenses on behalf of the child.  

Since every family’s case is unique and there are several factors to consider, in order to properly determine if either party has to pay child support  it is important to talk with an experienced family law attorney who can apply the facts of your specific situation and calculate the proper child support obligations.
