When considering who is the Custodial parent. When counting the “time” the child spent with a parent is that considered in “hours” or “days”, or “overnights”?… Reason I am asking is because I’m keeping a calendar of days spent with my son for child support purposes to prove I’m custodial parent. If I drop my son off to his mother in the afternoon at 3pm, is that considered partial day with me? Or because he will spend the night at her house on that day is that’s full day considered hers? Example of our schedule is Friday mornings at 7:30am I pick him up and return him on Tuesdays at around 3pm…On days that she has him, I still pick him up at 730am to take him to school, he is in school from 8:30 to 12:30, and I bring him back to her at 2pm.
