here is the scenario. mom and dad are split up. Mom has sole custody with bi monthly visitation to dad. during a school field trip to the library child check out 10 books. this was a month ago. mother gets a call from library stating books are past due. only four of the 10 can be located. so mother then has to pay $49.95 to replace the six lost books.

father does not pay child support.

mother calls and tells father that book need to be replaced. and asks for help in paying for books


do you think father should help pay for lost books?




CHILD TOOK BOOKS TO SCHOOL AND LOST THEM. NEVER BROUGHT THEM HOME.

NEITHER PARENT WAS PRESENT. CHILD CAME HOME TO MOTHERS AND HAD BOOKS. TOOK BOOKS TO SCHOOL AND DADS. AND BACK TO SCHOOL WHERE THEY WERE THEN LOST.

I think regardless of visitation and child support parents need to learn to work together to raise their children. the amount should be split between the two parents.

First of all why is there no child support? If the child checked it the books with dad them dad should have to pay. But good luck with that.

Who lost them? Whoever was in possession of the books is who pays for them.

If the books were misplaced at MOMS HOUSE, that's on mom. She should handle it.

why doesnt the father pay child support? is there a verbal agreement on money or something like that?

how old is this child? I believe if the child spends most of the time with the mother then it should be the mother's responsibility to make sure the books were returned on time.

Depends on where the books were lost. If they were lost at mom's house then mom has to pay and if they were lost at dad's house then dad pays.

Whoever took kid to checkout books in first place needs to pay.

Dad needs to pay his CS and mom needs to pay for books - hopefully she makes kid work it off doing extra chores.

Of course he should, but that doesn't mean he has to. 

On who's time were the books checked out on? Mom's then she should be responsible for them. Dads? Then he should.

Took them out on school trip.

Quoting kayla864:
