Hello, my name is Ely. I am here to help you. There may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a reply. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) my function is to give you honest
information and not to tell you what you necessarily wish to hear.
Child support is agreed-upon by the parents, and if not, then the Court sets it using the default set of calculation which focuses on how much the parent makes, and does not take into consideration what percent the child will be with you. So even if he has more custody, he is still likely to pay the same child support.Pros
-you may avoid an expensive court battle
-child support generally stays the same.
-in fact, you can barter him for more child support in an agreement not to fight him on widening visitationCons
-you may not want to allow him more visitation
-if you disagree, then you may face an expensive court battle
-once he has more time with the child, the court is less likely to reduce it unless/until you prove negligence/abuse on his part. So this may very well be standard until the age of majority
