"Why... it doesn't change anything does it?"
In an individual case possibly not. But in my opinion no meaningful policy discussions (or for that matter, legislative or legal decisions) can be made if parents, policy makers and family court professionals do not understand the ideas behind their own state formulas. Saying "the support amount is $1,000" a month has little meaning if no one knows that means that the calculation is founded on the notion than CP is spending, say, $100 a day on base childrearing costs or that an NCP spends only $6. That is only one economic distortion, and there are numerous others depending on the mix of days and incomes. On the opposite end of the spectrum, other distortions are the reason parents often complicate custody matters by accusing each other of "gaming time for money."

"...pretty useless without saying what the CP receives for theirs."
I think I answered this already.

"....it's really just a hypothetical discussion for me."
Which state?
