Spend significantly when children are with me

My ex-wife has primary custody and I mostly visit with them on weekends, mid-week, holidays and summer. I spend a significant amount of money when they are with me for activities, several vacations and other things. Is this considered when determining my child support obligation?

No, these things are not considered when determining child support.

Child support in NC is determined by a worksheet. The information considered in child support is the monthly gross incomes of both parents, work-related childcare costs, health insurance costs, and the amount of overnights in a year that each parent has the children, among other things.

Check out our Child Support Calculator to see what your child support obligation might be.
