About Me

Starting my new life

I have been waiting for the last twenty years to leave my husband. I have never been that well suited to him, but once I got pregnant I thought we should give it a try. Now that the kids have left home, it's obvious that our marriage is totally over. We're going to get a divorce. I'm making sure I have all of my ducks in a row, legally speaking, before I leave so that I get everything I'm entitled too. This blog is designed to give other empty nest divorcees a place to chat and share tips and advice.

Should Your Child Support Payments Include Day Care Costs?

If you and your spouse are separated, a court may order you to pay child support for any children from the marriage. Child support is primarily meant to provide financial support to your children when they're under the care of your former spouse. The money you pay is typically used to provide food, shelter, clothing and education as the child grows up. However, complications typically arise when a parent has to pay for day care costs that the child might need.
