Best Answer

Family Court when deciding issues such as child support, takes many factors into consideration. Where the child(ren) live for the majority of the time. Which parent has the largest expendable income. How joint custody is set up. For instance, if the child(ren) live with you during the school year. But, with the other parent during holidays, summer vacation, etc. Each parent could be liable for paying support for the length of time the child is in their care.

Does whoever gain the marital residence in a divorce get better chances of getting custody of the child?

Not necessarily. In most cases, the marital residence should be sold as part of the divorce would be equalization of assets and debts. If the residence can easily be kept, then parents should try to amicably work out a shared custody arrangement so the children have equal time with both parents if possible. This means that one residence does need to be deemed the primary, which is what would be on school forms, doctors etc, but that does not change the custody arrangement.
