What is child support supposed to cover?Submitted by sweetthing on Fri, 01/26/2007 - 10:28am
Just curious. Does anyone know? Is it supposed to include activities that the parent recieving child support signs the children up?
Just having a moment of financial anxiety of worrying about paying for half the ortho, the huge increase in our health insurance premium ( we went with better plan) and new baby on the way and all the extras that seem to pop up.
Oldest is getting bigger & per BM is now wearing size 10 ( is that a hint that we need to buy more clothes, his 8's seem to fit fine) She is supposed to provide clothing for visits, but sent too small crap last summer for both boys so I just started buying our own and she knows this. I made him try on every pair of pants at our house and there are 4 pairs of jeans that looked & fit just fine.
She just signed SS up for baseball & registration was $100.00. I am sure the $50.00 will appear on our tab with daycare this month.
I feel like I am being miserly, but I just want to know what child support is supposed to cover? BTW the decree does not say we have to pay for activities, but DH doesn't want the kids to think he doesn't care about them.
