FOC and Child Care

does anyone know how this works. my SO pays 711.00 a month in Child Support and we have his child for 6 weeks of the summer starting today. the Court Order states after 6 nights in a row staying with us child support is abate 50% which is understandable but my SO ex is saying while we have his son we are to pay for his child care while my SO is working. We pay 212.00 a month out of the 711.00 for child care so arnt we already paying for it???

  • Wow that was a lot of info in a small area. lol. Can you not ask the lawyer that takes care of the child's arrangements?

  • This is a matter that your LAWYER needs to be talked to. I wouldnt talk to anyone else, not even the mother of the child, but your lawyer. That mother could come up with a ton of stuff and kinda "threaten" you and NONE of what she says be true. Again, the best interest of the child and your sake is to contact your lawyer.

  • the money is in her pocket, and if while the child is in your care for those 6 weeks, she chooses not to help with any payments, that is unfortunetly her rights.. unless it is written word for word what the child support money she is getting is to be used for..

    reasons why... because she could be using the money for other expenses the kid may need...

    reality.. most of the time when kids are with their dads for the summer.. the mothers use the money to either catch up on bills.. or go shopping

    if this women is the type to waste the money she is still getting while the child is with you.. your SO needs to set up an appointment with his lawyer.. so that any issues he has, are written out so that she doesn't have loop holes to work with.
