This is related to something I posted in another group, but curious to see others' situations.
BMs, do you send receipts to BF to get reimbursed for things for your child(ren), or do you expect BF to reimburse you or pay for things based on paperwork stating so? Is this also a reflection on your parenting relationship with the BF?
SMs, does your DH/SO pay for things for his child(ren) after receiving information (verbal/e-mail/flyer/etc) about payments to be made, or does he wait for a receipt to reimburse for what was paid? What kind of relationship does your DH/SO have with the BM?
Both, what does the CO say about reimbursements or payments?
In our case, DH and BM have a CO that says that all payments that need to be reimbursed will be given to the OP within seven days of receipt and payment for reimbursement will be provided upon that receipt. In our case, BM hates giving DH any sort of receipt. She asks for money for reimbursement based upon a flyer that was sent, or a school newsletter, or whatnot (in which she states she paid for something). DH always asks her for a receipt and he doesn't pay her until she provides it, which should not be an issue because BM always claims she has receipts for everything anyway (such as "I already made the $$$ payment to hold SS' place in school, and I will be forwarding the receipt soon").
