I will try to best answer your question.
Child support is determined by guidelines enacted by the legislature. It takes into consideration income from both parties as if they were living in the same household. Based upon that new household income a basic child support amount is recommended under the guidelines. The problem with any system ir guidelines is that one size does not always fit all. This is why deviations are allowed for unique circumstances. Your unique circumstances that must be focused upon are the substantial amount of custodial time that you have with your child, the fact that you're doing all the transportation and the fact that 50 hours per week the child is also not with either parent. Child support needs to be awarded in accordance with the best interest of the child. Your attorney will need to argue that without a deviation you will have limitations on what you will be able to do and provide for the child during your periods of custody. You need to be able to provide for your child during your periods of custody the same as mother. I think your case sounds like an excellent candidate for a deviation.
I think this is a very strong case for a deviation.
Yes it is possible if the charges are reasonable. Mother will also need to provide proof and payment. You are going to demand cancelled checks showing that they were deposited and cleared. If mother claims cash you're going to request copy of the receipt as well as the withdrawal slip showing the cast coming out of her account.
I said it is possible. I did not know she was living there. May assume this daycare is a family member? If so you need to argue against it and demand proof of payment and that the recipient is disclosing alleged payments as income on tax return. It sounds like to take bs to me.
