Default re: Joint custody, VA law: How will be amount of child support calculated?

I wish to inform you that court may grant child support in joint custody. In this regard child support guidelines are issued by Commonwealth of Virginia which will determine the amount of child custody payable. Further the court regards best interest of child as main consideration and income of parents while awarding child support.

Depends:
On the needs of the child and your income and his income. Plus how many overnights each parent has, and if either parent is responsible for children outside of that marriage.

I take it that since he has a much greater income than you that you are assuming you will get a huge chunk of change each month and not have to work?

If he gets joint custody (he will if you've been married to him), do you plan to pay him child support to him as well? Joint custody means equal share.

Doesn't matter if they have joint custody or not, the father will always be made to pay the child support,not the mother.

That wasn't the question, oh bitter one. The question was, how much? Nobody here can answer that with any degree of accuracy as every case is different.
