Does joint custody timesharing affect child support in Florida?

Yes, the amount of time-sharing or joint custody does affect child support. The courts do take into consideration when a parent exercises substantial time-sharing, meaning that the parent exercises more than a certain amount of overnights per year. Child support is then calculated according to a gross-up method, which does greatly affect the amount of child support.
