Is child care such as summer camp and after-school programs something I can have added to the child support the father pays?

Q: I took my daughter’s father to court five years ago for child support, I never went back to have the amount increased or to request more money. For the past two years he has refused to pay for her summer camp and after school. When I have approached him about it he tells me he already pays child support and that if I want anything more for me to take him to court.

A: David’s Answer: Yes, after-school & summer camp (to the degree it takes the place of childcare) is an add-on to the basic level of child support. As such, you may file for an increase of basic support and to impose his share of the add-on expenses. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
