How Can Child Support Payments be Spent?

Last updated 6 years ago

Divorce can be very tough on both spouses’ finances—particularly the spouse who is awarded child custody. Fortunately, regular child support payments can help ameliorate the burden.  

In this short video from Get Legal TV, attorney Frank Mann discusses how child support payments can be spent by the recipient. Child support can basically be spent on anything, but it should be primarily spent on a child’s clothes, food, tuition, school supplies, and other basic living expenses.
