If the parties actually share joint custody and have the child with them 50% of the time, then there may or not be child support depending the the parties' respective incomes. If the parties share parental responsibilty but one of them is considered the "custodial parent" and the other had visitation, then there would be a child support obligation on the part of the non-custodial parent." If one of the parties is the "sole" parent, the child support will probably be the same.
