Can the ex dictate how child support is used?


#1

I receive child support from my son’s father. He is trying to dictate exactly what it is spent on i.e. tutoring, track out camps, etc. I’m trying to make sure there is food, shelter, clothing and basic survival needs are met. Can he really tell me where and how to spend?

Your ex cannot micromanage child support. It is up to you to allocate the funds received to ensure the child’s needs are met.
