Whether you still need to pay child support depends on the incomes of you and the mother, your relative timeshares, and the other factors in the California Guideline used for calculating child support. However, if you have significantly more timeshare now with your daughter, it is likely that your child support will be significantly reduced, possibly down to zero. It is important that you file a motion to modify your child support order to ask for a reduction in your current child support order, as changes in your child support order are only effective starting from the date of your filing.
