What determines who pays for child care and when? Given a 50/50 schedule and a situation in where one parent routinely works weekends and has help from his/her parents to watch the children, then who pays?
Spouse works M - F 9am - 5pm
Me work Sun-Tues 8am - 4pm
My parents are graciously watching the child on my 2 weekend days and 2 weekdays while I work, if I have them.
Do I have to pay for child care expenses for days that my spouse has the child and I’m not working? E.g. Spouse has child Wed-Fri and wants me to pay half of day care. So, do I have to pay for day care when the child isn’t in my custody? if all other factors are the same, income ect?
