Daycare expenses
      #392973 - 04/22/08 03:57 PM

I need help understanding something here.

CO states NCP has to pay $475/month for daycare.

However in the months of January, April, July, September and December, there are technically 5 weeks instead of 4 weeks which is what the $475 was based on.

NCP thinks that they should not have to pay extra for that extra week in the month.

Why is it CP responsibility to cover the entire week. This would bring CP's extra pay for daycare to $310.00 for the month.

Note: CP already pays over $100 a month extra because NCP thinks CP put the child in the most expensive daycare (not true).

Who should pay for the extra week of care in those months?

if the order says $475, NCP must pay $475 - no more no less.

Does the order say $475?

Agree. The CO should have been per week rather than month.

I cannot believe how royally screwed I got in that department. Our lawyers should have known to make it per week rather than month.

Your lawyer didn't do his/her job. Plus, you should have aksed mor questions before you signed.

Yes, I totally agree.

It still blows me away how NCP thinks that even remotely fair. But I guess lifes not fair and I just have to deal with it.

One child in daycare. Cost is $252/week.

I receive $50 a month in addition to the $475.

Usually it is taken into account that there are 52 weeks in the year, then the total is divided by 12 to get a monthly amount. I can't imagine your lawyer would not know this.

Dear Beanstalk,

I read in your other post that all of your other support payments are monthly, (i.e. the NCP pays you $200 in child support a month and you pay the NCP $150 a month in travel expenses) You do realize that if you change the court order to reflect what you consider to be unfair that all of the rest of it would need to be changed as well? You currently pay the NCP $150 monthly for travel expenses.... shouldn't you be paying more in the months that have five weeks? Do you see what I mean?
