    Do you think that parents who take care of their children should be obligated to pay child support?

    This question goes for mothers and fathers who are placed on child support, despite of the fact that they may take care of their children.

    There may be court orders to split the cost of the child even if the care is 50-50, causing one who earns less but provides half the care to have to pay something toward the child's upkeep.

    I've also seen parents take full time custody of the child and have to keep paying child support to the other parent for months while waiting for the child support order to be amended. In one case, the Dad kept paying it while the kids lived with him because it avoided having to go to court. She essentially took the money as the literal price for letting him have the kids (bribery).
