Hey all I was wondering if I could pick your brains. My ex

[840]

Hey all I was wondering if I could pick your brains. My ex wants 50/50 shared custody but I have our son 200 hours a month and he has him 136 hours. This is about 4 extra nights for me a month to include meals and medication. I don't know if this is considered a big difference and I should go for primary or leave it 50/50. If the last 3 months are an indicator I will have him more than that as he will ask me to take him so he can work overtime.....I don't want to go to court but I don't know how big of deal this time is. Any ideas from those who have been there?

Would you get no child support if it was 50/50? In NY it doesn’t matter, the residential parent gets child support

@IrishMom36 If it's 50/50 or close to it's shared, ...but what is close to. I don't want to fight but I have a feeling I'm going to get walked all over and nothing I can do about it because of his Job. Thanks for the thoughts.

Unfortunately that’s the system. It’s pretty sucky. Try to think of what’s best for the kids.
