Typically, a support order takes into account the time that a child will spend with the noncustodial parent.
In any event, the court's order for child support must be followed until the court issues a new order. If you think that the support order is unfair due to changes in custody, visitation or other factors affecting the child's best interests, you can petition the court for modification to the support order.
