Past Day Care Expenses

Is the non-custodial parent obligated to reimburse for past day care expenses?

I recently signed a Memorandum of Judgement/Order agreeing to pay past day care expenses, but feel that I was fooled into doing so. If past day care expenses are not obligatory, what would be my remedy to fix this situation?

No, the non-custodial parent is not required to reimburse the custodial parent for past day care expenses unless the parties agree to this or the judge orders it.

Assuming the Memorandum you signed was signed by consent and entered on your own free will, this is a valid order of the court that generally cannot be modified unless there is a substantial change in circumstances affecting the wellbeing of the child.
