How does the custody arrangement affect child support?

The parent who has primary physical custody is entitled to child support from the other parent. Depending on the income of the parties, support may also be owed when the parents have shared physical custody.  Even if a parent does not see the child, unless their rights have been legally terminated (keep in mind this must be done by a court and only in specific circumstances, it is not as simple as saying "I give up my rights") they still have a duty of support.  I will gladly run the numbers for you during our meeting to determine what a support obligation looks like for your particular case.
