Greetings. Child custody and child support are separate legal issues. When you are talking about child support, you are talking about the amount of time that each of you has the children in your care to determine the costs and therefore need for child support. The only way the court could standardize this is to count the overnights.
If you agree on an amount less than the child support guidelines, then yes, child support can later be set at the amount indicated in the child support guidelines. Best of luck.
