Can child support money be used for property taxes?

Q: My ex told our daughter that child support money was being used for property taxes, which is why there was very little money to buy her anything, such as nice clothes. Is that acceptable, with a salary of about $150,000 on top of child support?

A: David's Answer: The Court does not police how the child support money is being spent. Literally, your ex could be gambling the money away, and the child support court generally won't care (with some minor exceptions). Generally if one believes the custodial parent isn't acting in the child's best interests, then one may file for a switch of custody. For more info, call a Westchester Child Support attorney.
