Custody X Change Visitation Timeshare Calculator
Why it is important to know your parenting timeshare and overnight percentage. How to calculate these numbers using Custody X Change as a software tool.
The visitation timeshare, also called the parenting timeshare, is the percentage of time that each parent has with the children. For example, in a parenting schedule where the parents have the same amount of custody time, the visitation timeshare would be 50% for both the mother and father.
There are two reasons why you need to know the timeshare percentage:
- It's a crucial number for determining child support, and
- It shows you the exact amount of time that you have with your child.
Custody X Change is software with a visitation timeshare calculator.
Most states use timeshare percentage as one of the biggest factors in the child support calculation. However, because the visitation timeshare is difficult to calculate, many attorneys and courts simply guess or estimate the timeshare percentage.
You need an accurate timeshare calculation if you want to pay or receive the correct amount of child support. You can use Custody X Change to get the right timeshare and then use that number to calculate your child support so you know it's correct.
To get the visitation timeshare with Custody X Change you simply put your parenting time schedule into the software and the program shows you the exact amount of time that each parent has the children.
