    Default Will Child Support be Ordered in a 50/50 Custody Case

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Florida

    Fundamentally speaking, if both parents are:

    - Stable
    - Similar income range + expenses
    -Filing for 50/50 custody and time-sharing

    Is there still monthly child support mandated in most cases?

    Also, if child support is not obtained through wage garnishment under the current paternity agreement, is there any reason there would be under a 50/50 agreement?

    A time sharing arrangement whereby each parent has the child exactly or approximately 50% of the time is rarely practical -- especially for a child who has reached school age. That said, if we assume such an arrangement to be true, it's impossible to assess child support liability without knowing anything about the parents' relative incomes.

    Even with a 50/50 timeshare and roughly equal income there can end up being some child support due to expenses like daycare and health insurance. Generally with a 50/50 timeshare one of the parents is going to be paying some support, but it will be a lot less support than would be paid with a standard timeshare.
