The only one with custody of the unborn child is the pregnant mother. After the baby is born, the parent wishing custody or visitation can file for the same in the appropriate court of jurisdiction (where the child legally resides after its birth).

How does joint child custody affect child support in Alabama?

It depends on the type of joint custody. Custody is broken down into two subcategories- legal and physical. Legal custody is the ability to make decisions concerning the child and to act on the child's behalf. Physical custody is who the child lives with. Typically unless the child spends exactly 50 percent of the time with each parent, one parent is considered to have primary custody and the other parent to have secondary custody or visitation rights. Child support is based on who has primary physical custody, and that parent is typically awarded child support from the parent who has the child less since having the child more usually means that you provide for more of their needs as well.
