Your child has two parents and although you are not in love with each other anymore, and in fact, may not even like each other, it's best for your child if you work together as parents.
As your child heads back to school, this is a good time to re-evaluate and tweak your parenting schedule. Fall is a time of fresh starts and new beginnings and a chance to get organized in all aspects of your life.
Many children spend large chunks of time with their non-custodial parent over the summer. That first long visitation can be tough on the custodial parent and the child. These offers tips that can make it easier on you both.
The time your child spends with both of you has nothing to do with child support. Custody is only the preliminary factor in setting up child support. The non-custodial parent must pay it to the custodial parent. But beyond that, what happens with your parenting plan has no impact on child support.
