Question: Can I enter "Shared Custody" in the Financial tab?

Answer: In the Financial tab, you assign custody to one parent or the other.

The custody selection is used to set the exemption to the custodial parent. (You may change the exemption by clicking the more info link.)

The Custodial Parent also matters for purposes of the Child Care Credit.

For state guideline purposes, it may also matter if the custody is shared, or how many days a child spends with a parent.

You make those entries directly in the state's child support guidelines section, on the Guidelines tab.
