Yes this is correct. I have NO SAY in how they spend the CS. Which they use to pay bills. OCCASSIONALLY (I mean about 2X a semester) they will buy DS a pair or two of jeans and a couple of shirts from Walmart/Target. Shoes from Payless. No extras at all. They're BARELY scraping by, in spite of the almost $1K/month they get from me.

[quote]I don't know much about child support, but from reading the posts, I have a question. From some of the responses, it seems the parent paying child support has no say in how it is spent, as long as basic needs are being met. That does not seem right at all. That would mean if Dad had a large income and paid $3,000 a month in child support, Mom could feed the kid hotdogs and baked macaroni and refuse to let the kid have guitar lessons, and buy his clothes at yard sales and thrift shops? I would think the court would not look favorably on this.

c jane......If you are that upset with this situation, why don't you start documenting the things you believe are unfair and go back to court? Your child support should not be supporting your ex or his wife. [/quote]

Well, I cannot see why any noncustodial parent should have the child support they give the custodial parent used for anything, but the care of the child. I do not know your situation at all, but if I was unhappy and felt it was grossly unfair to me and my child, I would go back to court and ask for shared custody.
