No I don't understand why a higher income would give custody to a lower income just to get a bigger tax break, which honestly half the time the higher income earner would never see if the lower income earner had majority of access.

Making CS taxable isn't going to change a whole lot other than maybe a refund one would see at the end of the year

LovingFather32 is an unknown quantity at this point

All I know is that in my situation:

1. Offset CS (Ex lower income earner)
2. We share ALL child tax benefits down the middle (Shared custody regime)

Guess I'm not understand this "giving up custody for tax breaks" rubbish.

The only issue I have now is I don't even really feel like paying offset. I pay for D5's ballet, her "Sparks", her clothing, her school stuff .. everything. I've applied for a second job now to be able to support my ex, who is deciding that babysitting a few hours/day is her calling (paralegal degree/bilingual, etc). I'm not really okay with her intentional underemployment .. but whatever.

Desperate_Dad is on a distinguished road

All three of you should become lawyers because they clearly don't understand the problem either. Therefore I won't waste anymore time replying to this thread.

So until our delusional policymakers make child support taxable to the recipient and tax deductible to the payor, equal parenting will never be feasible.

this post makes sense

but what about those 'baby bonuses" which I've heard can be quite signficant...
