It could be done away with OR the parent who makes more money could end up paying some CS to the other parent. Possibly if the parent making more money is covering all health insurance, the parent making less could end up paying CS.

It really depends on so many factors including your individual county's views on CS, so it's hard to say. Do you leave it up to the judge and the calculator or make an agreement out-of-court to be signed in court...

IMO CS should be cut down for him having 1 of the kids living with him.

In our state, child support stopped in that event

There's a formula for that. Google a cs calculator for your state.

 id say it probably depends who makes more, if one makes a lot more than they still might have to pay some.

In GA, a child support worksheet is done up of each kid. One with BM as custodial for the kid she is keeping and one with your DH as custodial for the kid he is keeping. Then if there is a difference in the final child support amount, it is subtracted from the higher amount. That will determine if or who has to pay...if anything at all.

 Depends on the state, in our state even though each parent has a child, the one that makes the most still has to pay a little something according to the formula.

Nj is the same way it's A calculation based on income and overnights . But. You have to go back to court to get it adjusted and it's only retroactive to the date of filing unless you both agree to go to date of the change. Lawyers win.

Here they calculate for each kid and subtract. If there is a difference, someone will pay it.
