Once you file for divorce from your spouse, you are probably wondering what exactly child support payments can cover. The answer to that varies depending on the child because each child has different needs. However, we have listed some of the basic things that child support can contribute too.
Whether your child is in the first grade or attending college, child support can be used towards their education costs. From books to supplies, it adds up for a child to attend school regardless of their age.
The basics like food, shelter, and clothing are considered the necessities and are always considered when determining how much child support needs to be paid to the parent with custody. From school lunches to making a mortgage payment, the basic necessities cover a lot of things.
When both parents have to work and the child or children are not old enough to stay home alone, child support can be factored in to cover childcare.
All of these factors are carefully considered when determining how much child support one parent receives from the other one. For additional information about other things that child support can cover, please call our law firm at (813) 280-2911 and speak with a Tampa divorce attorney.
