50/50 Custody.... Should I have to pay child support?

Submitted by MartyB42583 on Fri, 04/24/2020 - 11:26
Ok so I have 3 children of which I have exactly 50/50 custody of, recently I have had them in March for 20 days to 11 days. I pay a lot in child support when their mom is a nurse and makes more then me. The PA Child support calculator is outdated and based on primary and non primary custody. I have a lot of people that I know that do not have to pay since it is 50/50 but I always get stuck. Is there something I can do to fix this?

Is it a mandatory requirement in York County PA court for an individual to go to the Kid's First Custody workshop in a custody matter that was just initiated? The parents of the child were never married, never lived together and have never separated during the life of the child. The parents separated before the child was born.

Dealing with difficult mom with school decision

Submitted by HungLe on Tue, 09/03/2019 - 11:59
My son starts kindergarten on Thursday and we are in disagreement as to which school he will go to. She won't even consider my opinion and wants him to attend a school near her, Ressurection Regional Catholic School. I have him 4-5 days every week (switches each week) and it's not fair for me to have drive each way for the school she wants and it's not really that good of a school. Especially when Merion Elementary (#4 in the state) is half a block away from me in Narberth.

Grandparents preventing seeing

Submitted by kimbasnow on Mon, 08/12/2019 - 16:43
My daughters recently spend the week at their mother and with the way it fell with custody I didnt see them for almost a week and half. I work a part time job and a local YMCA. As I was walking in they were walking out with their grandmother. My youngest was yelling and screaming for me so I started to walk towards them to give them a hug since it's been 1½weeks for all 3 of us. As I was doing this their grandmother proceeded to drag them by the arms telling them to shut up, get in car and stop causing a scene.
