Q: We are planning on doing 50/50 custody. Will I have to pay child support since I make more then my spouse?
I make $110,000. My spouse makes $80,000. We have 2 kids.
It's probable, that you will have to pay child support since you make more then the other parent. "The Minnesota Child Support Division bases the Child Support Guidelines Calculator on the Minnesota Child support guidelines statute." You should input your data to determine your potential obligation. Depending on the circumstances, other scenarios may be available. An attorney can assist you with further analysis.
Limited-scope representation is when you and a lawyer agree that the lawyer will handle some parts of your case and you will handle others. This is different from more traditional arrangements between lawyers and clients where a lawyer is hired to provide legal services on all aspects of a case, from start to finish. Limited-scope representation is sometimes called “unbundling” or “discrete task representation.”
