Q: I get my daughter every other weekend and I pay the mom child support. I only get enough to pay child support and my bills. My daughter likes to go out on weekends and I don’t have extra money after paying child support I asked her mom to send her with money during the visit and she said it’s my responsibility during my time. And she’s won’t send it! It’s crazy because how can I take care of my child pay bills and still have to take care of her expenses while she is with me. Should her mom send her with money. ? What should I do ?
A: Under NY law, the custodial parent cannot be directed to pay child support to the non-custodial parent. If there’s an issue with you paying too much child support, then you should file a downward modification of support petition. Call a Bronx Family Law Attorney to schedule a consultation for a full assessment.
