Child support


#1

The paying spouse has no control over how the child support payment is to be spent. In fact the paying spouse has no authority to unilaterally adjust the child support payment without permission of the court. Anything they have deducted is thereby delinquent. I hope this helps.

thank you, bert–that helps tremendously—you would think that my ex would have realized this—he is an attorney—he even put this in writing!loganb58

It can be extremely annoying when someone takes out your child support by their own decree. I hope that you have gotten your funds back!
