California Law: Custody & Child Support
Those who divorce and obtain joint legal custody of their children will also have to share financial responsibility of their children. Although child support payments are a separate issue, they overlap heavily. For example, say a husband and wife divorce. The husband and wife share physical custody of their children and also share legal custody of their children. Both are responsible for making decisions regarding their children while both get the right to parent their children in a physical sense. Rather than splitting child support exactly evenly, the court will likely decide support payments based on need and availability. If the husband has a better job than the wife, then the husband will likely be called upon to provide child support payments, even though they both share rights to their children equally.
