After spending much of my week in and out of child support hearings, I have come to the conclusion that my clients think they are celebrities. After all, why would two people with joint custody and little money be fighting over things like daycare costs and how to share them? I think the answer is that they see cases like this and get confused about what child support really is. Custodial parents, child support is not to support you so you can keep your body tight. Non-custodial parents, just because you pay doesn’t mean you get an itemized list of how the money is spent. If you want to have a happy home, try to make these decisions before you hate each other.
