  • Primary residence If a child resides primarily in one parent’s home for at least 60 percent of the time, the other parent must pay Guidelines support based on the Child Support Table (Table).
  • Shared custody If a child divides his or her time between the parents’ homes to spend more than 40 percent of the time in one and less than 60 percent of the time in the other, the court has the discretion to depart from the Table amount, pursuant to s. 9 of the Guidelines.
  • Split custody If custody of the children is divided, with one or more residing primarily in each parent’s home, child support is calculated as the set-off between the amount each parent would pay for the child or children in the other parent’s care applying the Table.
