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.
