Collaborate - I'd be grateful if you could point me in the direction of any research that says that re one home - am in desperate need of it to back up my position. Whenever I google lots of pro- fathers rights sites come up! Many thanks.
Don't know what websites Merry has been on, but the law most certainly doesn't say that parents should divide the children equally. In fact research says that children benefit from having one home, but regular overnight contact with the other parent. True shared care is still very much in the minority if cases.
CSA website will tell you how much support should be. I'm not quite clear on your present child care arrangements, but whatever the situation is, you need to sit down and arrange how you can work it as equally as possible. There are plenty of websites to find this stuff out from, but most legal websites suggest that you split things as equally as possible, regardless of who has done the lion's share of the childcare up to now. If this doesn't suit the way in which you both work, then you have to sit down and agree what kind of situation you're going to have. Anything less than half, and the child support goes up. Hope that helps a little.
