What do child support payments cover?

48343953_S.jpgMissouri parents still have a lot of work to do post-divorce. Your child still depends on both of you for financial resources, so figuring out a child support plan that works for all parties is crucial. Stange Law Firm is here not only to help get the ball rolling, but to aid you if you find yourself facing difficulties collecting support payments.

Child support payments are important for many reasons. They help cover basic necessities. This can include food, clothing, shelter, and educational fees. Medical expenses can also be covered partially by child support payments, though a parent's medical coverage will still extend to their child even after a divorce. After all, child support is meant to make up for the financial gap that the non-custodial parent leaves behind.

But did you know that child support payments can go toward extracurricular things, as well? This includes field trips, yearbooks, and afterschool sports or activities. For example, the money from a child support payment can go toward gymnastic lessons or a new instrument. It can go toward childhood experiences as well, like prom tickets. These experiences and activities will benefit your child's life by providing entertainment and enrichment, which can be especially vital in the turmoil after a divorce.

These are just a few of the reasons as to why child support payments are so vital to post-divorce living. If you're struggling to receive the support payments you need, you may benefit from clicking through the link here, which will take you to our web page on child support and custody.
