As long as your kids are taken care of, then who cares what you spend $$ on.

I guess we do things differently all the money coming in goes into our bank account and all the money going out goes from that bank account. If we were getting child support it would just go into the pot that is used to pay bills and feed the kids and if I bought a grill it would come out of that same pot of money.

It's not like someone would hand me a check and I would automatically send several hundred to pay the mortgage from it etc etc.

If all your children's needs have been met and they don't need anything else then buy a grill that is going to be used as a family.

As long as you aren't taking the child support money and just blowing it on clothes and ignoring your kids needs I don't see a problem buying a grill.

He has NO say in how you spend it. Period. Don't even discuss it with him.
