Summary as passed Senate: (all summaries)
Child support guidelines. Modifies the calculation of child support in shared custody to distinguish between variable and fixed costs, and to determine variable costs based on the percentage of time a parent has custody of the child. The purpose of the bill is to modify the current computations, which in certain situations set the custodial parent's support share at a higher level for shared custody of 105 days or fewer than for sole custody. The Code now addresses this discrepancy by permitting such calculations to be discarded in favor of the sole custody support amounts.
