1) A good idea when 2 parents want to create children, but only 1 wants to raise them.
2) A bad idea when both parents want to spend equal time with the children.
1) I'm glad Tyrone pays child support. He dated Gladys, pumped & dumped her, and has never bothered to see Tyrone Jr.
2) Bethany has the kids, but, no job. Eric hardly ever gets to see his kids. He is forced to pay lots of child support money, but he doesn't get to enjoy his children.
I think equally shared physical custody & no child support should always be encouraged by the courts, and only parents who DON'T want to take their children should have to pay child support.
