The actual time you will spend with your child is determined by the parenting time (visitation) schedule. The court prefers that the parties create a parenting time schedule that works for them and the child. If the parties are unable to come to an agreement, the court will decide, often based on a custody evaluation. The amount of parenting time each parents has does affect child support, so it is important to understand how a parenting time schedule may impact how much child support you receive or pay.
