Form 14 Assistant requires overnight totals for the non-custodial parent in order to figure out child Form 14 Assistant, based on the guidelines set by the state of Missouri.
Parenting time percentages are derived from the amount of time each parent spends with their children. To figure out a correct percentage, you must calculate the amount of time the non-residential parent spends with the children. When clients set up a visitation schedule, it becomes tedious and often difficult to calculate a precise parenting time total.
This information is combined with data concerning each parent's income and the parenting time credit applies to only joint physical custody cases where the non-custodial parent hosts the children between 37 and 109 overnights. Sole custody cases do not qualify for any kind of child credit based on overnights. Form 14 Assistant asks you to enter a percentage in order to calculate child support.
Custody X Change software includes a parenting time calculator that shows exactly how much time each parent has with the children.
When you set up a parenting time schedule, the software automatically counts up all the hours for the non-residential parent. This accurate parenting time total gives you the precise data you need.
Use Custody X Change to get accurate parenting time totals, because:
- Parenting time totals are difficult to figure out by hand, because attorneys must add all the quarter, half and full days within a year for the non-residential parent.
- Figuring parenting time totals adjust every time an attorney changes the schedule
- Calculating and re-calculating any change to the schedule is so complex, some attorneys are forced to estimate or guess.
- Entering parenting time totals calculated from a guess or estimate into the Missouri child support formula means that child support amounts will likely be wrong.
Figuring out child support amounts requires exact numbers, from each parent's income to the amount of credits allowed. Another important number is the parenting time total, or how long each parent is scheduled to be with the children.
Correct numbers mean the child support amount is fair and accurate, and Custody X Change delivers accurate totals every time.
