Child support – change when there is shared custody

| Jun 12, 2016 | Uncategorized

Q: My ex and I recently decided to share visitation and legal custody. I was paying my ex support but now with this change in custody, could my payments be lowered? I also just recently learned my ex makes more money than I do now.

A: David’s Answer: Yes, if your custody has now changed, you can petition for support to be adjusted accordingly. The Court is very unlikely to completely eliminate support, but it would most likely be significantly less if you now have the child 50% of the time.
