Summer camp


#1

My ex and I are have a court date very soon. She has put on that child support calculation sheet that our kids will be attending
summer camp at a local YMCA this up coming summer. Now our kids have never attended camp in the past and they are 14 and 12 years of age. She chose
the most expensive programs for the kids to participate so this amount will be added in the child support calculation. Is this just? And what can I do
if she doesn’t send them to camp?

You should raise the issue of summer camp at your hearing. Is she claiming that the summer camp is a work-related child care expense? If so, I would argue that the children are old enough to no longer need child care, and in the alternative that the cost is unreasonable. The judge ultimately decides what figures to use on the worksheet.
