How Do You Figure Out Child Support With 50/50 Schedules?

Is no child support in a 50/50 custody schedule fair?

What about out of pocket costs?

The out of pocket costs should be split according to income. It is unfair to ask someone who makes less to pay an equal share of out of pocket costs. One solution to this might be that if the child is super active in sports, the Parent with the higher income pays for the extra-curricular costs 100% and the others are split equally. You should not have one parent paying 100% of medical out of pocket unless they have the ability to use a tax free health savings plan that allows for contributions from their wages.
