Does the parenting schedule play any part in assessing child support?

The parenting schedule does play a part in assessing child support – particularly if a case is a New Jersey Child Support Guideline case. The amount of time that each parent has the children will still affect both whether or not they will pay or receive child support, and the amount that this will need to be in order to give the parent receiving the support the resources they need for the children to maintain a comparable quality of life to what they enjoyed during the period that the family was intact.
