Is it possible to have 50/50 custody of our 3 year old without anyone paying child support?
Question Details: My child's father and I are applying for divorce but we want to share custody and don't want any parent to pay child support. We just want to end our marriage and continue to raise our daughter as we would before divorce working together and sharing all costs. Is that possible?
The General rule in your state is that unless the parents are following a 50/50 parenting time split, the non-residential parent pays child support to the residential parent. If Maine parents have equal pay and participate in substantially equal care custody, child support is generally not awarded to either parent. And you can always agree to that as well. Good luck.
