Child support should go to bills, things the child needs and other items. The rare times I recieve child support I spend it on what ever we want to need at the time because we make sure my son has everything he needs

What happens when dad doesn't pay for 6 months, during which time mom provides everything on her own, maybe giving up a few luxuries for herself, then dad pays and, as the kids have already been supported, mom decides to treat herself?

How do you know if the child support was used for that? Usually court ordered child support is on a card. A prepaid credit card. If a person wishes, they can have it direct deposited instead.

this was my point to my mom (yes...she is the one posting it and arguing about it because my slimeball brother is not paying child support and she is defending his sorry ass)

mortgage (rent) electricity food...all that is important and what the child needs. 

Quoting othermom:

It does come on a card and I disagree that it should only be to buy baby stuff. I mean children don't remain babies and it is also to go towards bills or whatever the cp want to use it for

I spend my kids C's on whatever we happen to need at the time. It usually pays a bill or provides gas money. But then he is supposed to pay $847 a month and he usually only pays about $400 and cries because he claims he can't even really afford that.

That would suck for me. I didn't start receiving child support until ds was 5 and dd was 10. I wouldn't be able use it if all I could but are baby items.
