Simple child support question


#1

I suggest adding up the total child care costs for the entire year and then dividing by twelve (12) to get an average monthly amount for the Child Support worksheet.

Im trying to modify a 5 year old child support worksheet and need to know about child care. If you pay a fixed amount every month but in the summer (for 2 months) you pay a higher amount… will that need to be included as part of the daycare expense? If so, is it an average for those 2 months and add that to what is paid every month?
