Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.
It's possible that he would still have to pay child support.
The length of time that each parent has the kids is a factor in how much child support (if any) is paid.
However, another factor is their income.
If your friend makes $1 million per year, and the ex makes $40,000 per year, then I'm certain he'd have to pay child support even though they split time.
On the other hand, if they both earn about the same each year, then child support probably wouldn't be ordered.
Does that make sense?

He makes about $100K per year and she has been a homemaker for the last 16 years. She is currently seeking employment.
OK. How is child support calculated in Nebraska? Is there some sort of formula? Could you give me an example using these factors: Current income of 100K yearly with 4 kids.
