Child support by the definition is intended to financially support the child. If child support is being paid to that parent who is listed as the primary residence, I would take this to mean that based upon the abilities of both parents the one receiving the CS is the one that is in the position of the parent who needs the financial support intended to continue and maintain the child in a similar economic environment as the the non-primary residence.

The child's lifestyle between both households is meant to be equal.

If 6 months is spent with one parent and another 6 with the other. The primary residence parent would still need to maintain the residence when the child is away.
