Child Support Vs Child Custody

Child support and child custody are two different things but they often go hand-in-hand with one another. You can read more about child custody here.

Child support is meant to cover a broad range of expenses, which may include school fees, entertainment, medical, and extracurricular activities, among other things. Included under child custody:

  • Basic necessities such as food, clothing, and shelter

  • Medical care

  • Educational fees

  • Childcare

  • Transportation

  • Entertainment

  • Extracurricular activities

  • College expenses

 

How Is Child Support Determined?

In almost all cases, one parent has primary custody of the couple’s children. However, when there is real shared physical custody, where the children spend a substantial amount of time with each parent, the payment of child support can be greatly affected. In these cases, the amount of time the child spends with each parent is taken into account, along with their relative incomes.
