    Answered . If the father has 18 out of 30 overnights he is considered to have primary physical custody of the children. Typically this would result in his spouse being responsible to him for some child support (with an adjustment for anything over 40% of the overnights). However, there are cases which would still require Father to pay child support and it is dependent upon the income and/or earning capacities of the parties.
