You have created a life for your family that you enjoy and are proud of, and all of these extras and enriching activities cost money. So when you and your spouse decided to get divorced, you may have assumed that with the help of child support, you could maintain this type of lifestyle. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Here, a San Francisco divorce attorney explains what child support isn’t meant to cover.
Expenses for Younger Children
- Nannies or babysitters
- Afterschool care
Expenses Related to School-Aged Children
- Enrichment camps
- Recital fees and costumes
- Academic tutoring
- School photos and yearbooks
- Private lessons
- Musical instruments and lessons
- Fees pertaining to sports, including registration and equipment
Fees Related to High School and Later in Life
- College funds
- Wedding fees
- Expenses related to vehicles
As a mother, you know just how much all of these activities can cost. Unfortunately, if you plan to continue with them, you may have to use your own money—not what is given in child support—to pay for them.
