Is The Custodial Parent Obligated To Give An Account Dollar For Dollar Of What The Child Support Is Spent On?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: December 19, 2018

Q: My soon to be ex husband- pays child support and we have a mutual agreement. things have gotten ugly between us and he now wants me to give him receipts of what i spend the child support money on. I am insulted that he would even ask. i have nothing to hide but i don’t want to now save receipts and provide them.

A: No – basic support is meant to cover all the basic necessities, but does not need to be documented. The only thing you need to provide him receipt for are the add-ons: unreimbursed medical, educational & childcare expenses. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
