The parent who obtains physical custody of the child/children is entitled, by statutory calculation, to child support. That calculation is ultimately based on the noncustodial parent’s income. This is not always a simple calculation, for example, where there is “unreported” income. Under the child support statute, other issues, such as medical coverage and educational expenses, must be dealt with.
