Child Support Calculations


When I ran the child support calculator, I was confused about the treatment of ‘non-overnight’ visitations. If my STBX offers that I could see the kids every wednesday evening for dinner–would that be factored into the calculation somehow? The calculator specifically states that you enter the number ‘overnight stays’, but just wanted to clarify if there would be any consideration for that many non-overnight stays.



Guideline child support is based on the number of overnights the children spend with the non-custodial parent.
