WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD PA ETA WHERE BOOKS WERE LOST

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
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 those are some cheap priced books and I'd pay it but the CHILD would be working off the total in extra chores. Unless the child "lost" the books at the dads it's the mothers responsibility to keep track of the childs items if the child can't.

Doesn't matter if fathers paying support or not in my opinion, primary responsibility is the mothers. If father was paying support she wouldn't be able to ask for extra for the books anyway.

If the child checked out the books during a school field trip, the mother should pay. If the child checked out the books with the mother, the mother should pay. If the child checked out the books with the father, then the father should pay.
