Should child support go up once child is enrolled in daycare?

When my child's father was put on child support, our child was not enrolled in day care. However, now I have to enroll her in day care and the amount he pays doesn't even cover half of the cost for day care. He makes triple what I make so I assume if I turned in her day care information it should increase to help cover half of day care right?! Plus note that our child stays with me every day.

Ask your lawyer.

From what I know of child support it is calculated based off of both parents income. His child support MAY increase, but if she's going into daycare in order for your income to increase... your income increase may offset his potential increase.

Basically, ask your lawyer. ;)
