  • Shared custody Virginia

    My friend as of now do not have custody/visitation but he do pay his support and on time. The question he wants to know is if he go to court and get visitation to his son can he go back and get a modification on his support payment because he also want to continue keeping the child for the summer since he been doing it since 2000.

    Normally the state will do an automatic review every two to three years. Or Unless a change of imcome of either parent.

      Actually, in a case such as this, if he were granted shared custody (and had the child at least 90 days of the year), that would be grounds to file for modification of the child support order, assuiming that the order that is in effect was established on "sole custody" guidelines.

      In the event that he is granted shared custody, if it can be shown that the amount of child support for sole custody is less than the amount for shared custody, the lesser of the two amounts would be ordered. In the shared custody guidelines, child support is calculated on shared income.

      I want to reiterate that this information is specifically for Virginia.

            He can tell them all he wants. However, until there is a court order that grants him visitation or joint custody, CSE will not take that into account. There must be a court order for custody determination. Think about it...if all it took to get child support lowered was the NCP telling the case worker that s/he had the child for X number of days, don't you think there would be a line, 4 miles long, of people waiting to get their child support reduced?
