Child support, is based on the needs of the child and the economic situation of the parents.

Child support is primarily determined by what it takes to provide the child with a reasonable standard of living, based on what the two divorced parents have available. Sole custody indicates that the child will be living solely (with limited visitation) with a just one of the parents. Thus, that parent will be responsible for providing the vast majority of the food, clothes, etc. that the child will be using. The non-custodial parent now no longer will be providing those (if they had shared custody). So it is likely that the court will also modify the child support requirement - either reducing the amount the custodial parent had been paying the now non-custodial parent, or increasing the amount that the now non-custodial parent had been paying the now custodial parent.

How does joint custody affect child support?

Joint Custody and Child SupportJoint legal custody has no effect on child support. With joint physical custody there is still a payment of child support from the higher income parent to the lower income parent, usually determined by a sliding scale based on time with each parent (procedures vary among states). Because both parents provide for the child directly, the payment between parents may be less, but the financial support to the child is the same or higher than with sole custody.
