As long you agree to the terms and file an uncontested divorce or separation agreement, the judge should honor your agreement. The only way he will overrule this is if one parent is required to pay support under law, and there is no law in WV.
You need to just include a custody clause that each parent will have joint physical custody with the children spending 50% of their time at each home. Each parent agrees that neither will pay support to the other spouse.
That may be a possiblity but your ex and can agree in a separate agreement between you two that if support is ordered he will not enforce any support award. Otherwise you may be obligated to pay if the court orders it.
