One of the major decisions to make during a divorce is how the parenting schedule will work. Many families have some form of shared parenting schedule, where their children spend significant time with each parent.
In some cases, joint custody refers to arrangements whereby the child lives with one parent on a primary basis, subject to flexible and liberal visitation with the other parent.
The key thing to know about child support is that it doesn’t impact either parent’s taxes. In other words, the parent who pays child support does not receive a tax deduction.
In family law, you want to make sure the right child custody and parenting plan is in place and that there are sufficient financial resources to care for your children.
