CS payment considered a gift?


#1

My husband and I have several bank accounts. I have made several of his child support payments from my personal account recently. He is not a signer on this account. His ex wife is claiming that because the money came from my account and not his, they were gifts and he still owes her CS for those months. Is this true?

I have a quick question…did you put anything in the memo of the check like “child support”?

If you put anything like that in the memo, and she cashed it, I would assume that she is then acknowledging that it was for child support, and not a gift. I also think that if the amounts equal the child support payment, it wouldn’t hold up…

Just my opinion though…

Stressed mom- no, if the support was paid by another on behalf of the obligor the mother is not entitled to collect another payment from the father.
