Living expenses including rent, food, electric, gas for the car, car insurance etc. Or fun things for the kids, savings. Basically whatever its needed for.

For whatever the FUCK the custodial parent decides to do with it, provided the children have their needs met.

This. If you need it to cover rent for the month so be it. New tires for the car, use the money. Little Joseph needs shoes? Use the money. Taking care of household needs whether it be the light bill or buying a few extra groceries ultimately benefits the child.

So like JenN said, if the child's needs are being met do what you like with the money.

It should be used to cover a child's expenses. If there are nine, it should go into savings for the child. In some cases there shouldn't be child support at all.

Living expenses, college and extras.
All children deserve to have both parents support their basic needs.
