I'm not that much of an expert on Illinois stuff. I don't think they have a guideline for split custody. I think you have to get a lawyer to argue it. I think one person is always the primary parent in Illinois.

Do you currently reside in your marital home? If not, who's looking after your child when the stbx is working?
Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

The judge does. Your lawyer will request it. The judge will decide. If he tells her to pay, she'll pay or face the consequences...which don't always work, but oh well.

You could have joint custody and still be required to pay child support . The determining factor will be how much time you have with your child , if you were to have state minimum visitation ( EOW , split holidays , half summer ) expect to pay CS . If you were to be the custodial parent the STBX would be required to pay . Anything in between is up to the court . As Il . has mandatory mediation try to work up an agreeable parenting plan without resorting to the court deciding . In some cases due to a great income difference it is possible that the CP pay CS to the NCP .
Careful. We don't want to learn from this.
