If you are a parent of a minor child or minor children, child support is another critical issue that will have to be determined in the Collaborative Process. If you decide that it is best for the children to live primarily with one parent that parent will usually be the recipient of child support from the other parent.
Even when parents decide time with the children will be shared, it may be appropriate for one parent to receive child support if the other parent has a substantially greater income or if one parent is paying work-related child care expenses. As with all resolutions reached in the Collaborative Process, you and your spouse are empowered, informed, and guided through the process by your team of professionals to make your own determinations regarding support, including how much it will be and how long it will last.
