In Wisconsin, it depends on who has physical placement of the child. It may also depend on who has the higher income of the both parents.

It is possible that even with joint custody you will still have to pay child support to the other parent.

Joint custody simply means both parents have equal rights in making decisions for the well-being of the minor child/children. The person with whom the child resides the majority of the time is the person who generally receives support to be used for the child's needs. If the time is equally divided the court will decide if and how any child support will be allocated, based upon income levels of the parents and the needs of the child.

Generally, the parent with the greater amount of physical custody is entitled to child support.
