Is child support affected by the custody schedule?

Yes. Child support is usually determined by the North Carolina Child Support Guidelines. The factors that determine child support are: the gross income of the parents; work-related childcare expenses; health insurance premiums for the child; other extraordinary expenses; and the number of nights that each parent has the child. Generally, if one parent has 122 nights or less, Worksheet A is used to calculate child support and the amount is higher than if Worksheet B is used. Worksheet B is used if both parents have the child 123 nights or more. If the parents share the child equally, one parent may still have to pay child support depending upon the other financial factors that are considered.
