It goes by a % of the father's monthy income, I believe it's around 25% for the first child, and 17% for the second. Like, if a man makes about $900 a month he will pay about $250 a month.

If you have 50/50 joint custody there shouldn't be any child support payments, just the 50/50 shared expenses (e.g. medical insurance, school informs, daycare/afterschool care, sports/school activities).

There is a formula for 50/50 custody as well as shared custody which is a bit different.

The formula goes off of the mothers and fathers incomes as in any other calculation of support for Oregon at least. You can look up the calculation on the web with the correct income information from both parents.

Now, some parents may waive support if incomes are comparable but in general this in not the case.

I do believe some parents may think that because they have 50/50 custody this makes them immune to having to pay child support but that is not the case.

In Calif. it's a formula.

You can get a DEMO copy of the software by going to my website at http://www.steveshorr.com/child_support.htm

Plug in the #'s and then you'll see where you're at.

Maintenance and parenting time / access / custody are not usually linked. Shared 50/50 custody does not mean equal maintenance. Unless, as above, the parents means are very similar.

If there is a difference in parental means, there will usually be a formula applied that shifts the larger portion of maintenance payments onto the wealthier parent.

Depending on the age of the child & the state in which they reside, the court may let them determine where they choose to live.
