Offsetting Child Support
Many times, the amount of child support to be paid is a little more complex. In Mississippi, the amount of child support is a straight rebuttable percentage of adjusted gross income. However, this can be offset some. In the summer, the non-custodial parent often has the child most of the time. This can be an area where it can be argued that the custodial parents should pay child support during those months. As a result, this can be used to potentially lower the base amount of child support per month or even sometimes eliminate it when there is a great difference in income.
