Explaining how child support payments can be used

On Behalf of | May 24, 2018 | family law | 0 comments

One of the most difficult things you can endure in life is fighting for the custody of your children. This can become a very heated, lengthy battle that seems unending. Once the judge issues a ruling as to who will have custody, or if joint custody is the ruling, you will need to follow the agreement to the letter. One part of such an agreement is how much child support will be paid to you by the noncustodial parent. Here’s what you can do with those payments in Kentucky.

Child support payments can be used for just about anything these days, including education. Even if your child goes to public school, there will still be fees that need to be paid. These fees include books, tutors, lunch, sports equipment, field trips, transportation and much more. You can use the child support to cover all of these costs.

The child support payments sent to you can also be used to pay for the basic necessities needed to raise a child. This includes food, drink, clothing, shelter and child care. The payments can be used to pay for your rent, your mortgage and any babysitters you need to hire while at work or at doctor appointments.

You can also use child support payments to pay for uninsured medical costs for your child. Not every procedure or visit to the doctor will be completely covered by the insurance policy. The payments can be used to satisfy out-of-pocket deductibles, co-pays and other fees associated with the medical care of your child.

Now that you know what it is you can do with child support payments that are sent to you each month, you can allocate the funds appropriately. Make sure your children are fed, clothed and educated in Louisville, Kentucky, using this money.
