Who Will Pay for Child Care? Can The Costs Be Deducted From Child Support Payments?

Figuring out who will pay for child care when both parents work is an important part of the big picture of child support. However, day care costs are not figured into a child support calculation. Any contribution that either parent makes to child care costs will be over and above the child support amount.

What does this mean in your case? For one thing, it means that if you are paying support and you contribute to your child’s day care costs, you cannot deduct that amount from your child support payments. Get the clarity you seek with regard to child support and day care costs as you approach divorce or separation. Find out how day care may be taken into account in your child custody and child support orders.

What About If One Parent Wants To Provide Child Care Services Rather Than Pay For Day Care?

Divorced and separated parents are not always concerned only about money when it comes to child support. At Manassa Law P.C., we often meet with noncustodial parents who wish to care for their own children rather than pay daycare fees.

It may be a self-employed father who pledges to arrange his work schedule to allow him to spend time with his children rather than pay a child care center. It may be a mother or father whose own parents — grandparents of the children in question — wish to provide child care services. Not surprisingly, parents often differ in what they believe is best for their children as well as financially fair when it comes to daycare and child support.
