Urbana, OH asked in Child Custody, Child Support and Family Law for Ohio

Q: Why would he have to pay child support when he has the kids more than she does?

My boyfriend has to go to a hearing with his ex wife to determine child support but we have his son through the week and she has the weekends, On the weekdays she is going out on dates, taking her self out, etc. Will the court look at that to determine child support? Will he have to pay if he has the child more than she does? There is a lot more to this story on her being an unfit mother and not providing for the child and asking for money every other day because she cannot afford to care for the child. She gave the child rotten apple juice, she had bed bugs, she takes the child to the ER everytime she has him. How does this all play out in a child support hearing?

A: Greetings from a bright and sunny Friday morning. The Court will take into consideration time spent for child support purposes, though the Father should also file a Motion for Legal Custody and curtail the Mother's parenting time.
