Montgomery, AL asked in Child Custody, Child Support and Family Law for North Dakota

Q: Does joint split custody exist to where neither parent pays the other child support? Can fathers win a case like this?

Why do fathers have no right or avenues to have equal rights when it comes to the child? I am married with two other kids with my current wife. I would like my child support for my oldest lowered or have equal custody so I can take care of the needs of all my children. Instead of giving the mom money and she does whatever she wants with it. She also is constantly threatening and harassing me, as well as using the child as a pawn. I just want to have my daughter in my life as much as possible without the headache of her mother.

A: Even with equal residential responsibility, the person who makes more money will still be required to pay the other child support.
