Child Support and Parenting Time Credit
For the most part, child support in Indiana is determined primarily by the Indiana Child Support Guidelines formula. This formula takes into account the income and expenses of each parent, as well as the amount of time spent with each parent. Support is then determined accordingly. The type of shared parenting and the amount of parenting time you spend with your child can make a significant difference in the amount of child support payments you will be paying or receiving for your child.
In Indiana, family law courts take into account the amount of time that the non-custodial parent has had the child overnight during the course of a year. Support may either be increased or reduced depending on the parenting time the non-custodial parent has with the child.
