Dear theirmom:

Greetings. Yes, the travel expenses should be factored in as an extraordinary expense - but make sure to hire the right attorney to get this information correctly accounted for. Thank you.

I have a question: In my current parenting agreement it stipulates I am responsible for transportation of the children for visitation. Background: one child lives with me, the other 2 live with him. I live in Arizona, they live in Wilmington, NC.

In consideration of modifying the agreement to address the matter of child support, can I expect the extraordinary expense of airline tickets and ground transportation (for a 2 hour journey on each side of the air journey) to be factored into the support amount?
