Parent in possession of child is parent responsible for providing child care. Usually with week to week, we have to include something in the order that obligates both parents to pay for their weeks, although daycare providers don't care where the money comes from and will withdraw a child if other parent is not paying, so one parent can end up paying just to keep their spot. If you have more questions, please schedule a consult with a local attorney. /RLG
