Child Support with 50/50 Time Sharing
« on: Oct 09, 2008, 03:23:10 PM »
how do i find out if this is mandatory or discretionary in my jurisdiction?

at first i was told that it was mandatory. however, another attorney has told me that in our jurisdiction it may be discretionary.

i didn't even know that a new law had come about regarding this since our final judgment, until i filed for contempt against the other parent. i didn't even ask for CS.

i am wondering because it would explain a lot of things...

It depends on your state but usually they want to make sure the two houses are about the same....If the parents agree ...you can almost do anything you want.

what i mean is that... originally the other parent would have had to pay, but we agreed to no child support.

my attorney has informed me that since the our final judgment was signed and ordered by the judge a new law has been adopted by our state that no longer allows the parties to agree to waive CS. that it is mandatory.

but another attorney who also had that impression said that it may not be true for our jurisdiction... that here it is discretionary and would depend on the judge.

i just want to know where i would look that information up to verify it.
