This is a question that is being debated among several of my friends that are also dealing with visitation issues. If a child lives with one parent, but frequently visits another, should the non-custodial parent have their own set of clothes for the children, or should the custodial parent be responsible for providing the clothing used and keep the maintanence of those clothes? Is it expected that the child support paid by the non-custodial parent means that the custodial parent pays for all expenses of that child, even when that child is visiting the non-custodial parent (for example, should Mom send spending money, clothes, formula, diapers, etc. to the Dad’s house when kids visit)?
Thanks for clearing this up.
