I pay child support to my ex-wife, with whom I share 50/50 legal and physical custody of our daughter.
My daughter expressed a desire to move into my home full time, or at least more than half the time, prior to her emancipation. When and if the time comes for her to move in, I would like to stop paying child support.
My questions, in order of priority, are: 1) should I first petition the court to modify the custody agreement to allow my (16 y.o.) daughter to move in, or first petition the court to modify the support order? 2) am I no longer obligated to pay child support if I have custody of my daughter more than 50% of the time, and 3) is it possible my ex will be obligated to pay child support if she has less than 50% physical custody?
