Who pays for sports?


I am the recipient of child support. My son’s dad gets the choice of sports. Who should pay? Should he or should we split. He has significantly more income than I do and the child support goes to the basic needs to uphold my son’s quality of home life.


Here’s what my husband and his ex do… if it’s a sport that someone signed the child up for without consultation of the other ex, then they pay for it solely. Otherwise, if it’s a consulted sport and both parents agree to it, they split it according to the percentages listed in the child support calculations. So if he makes 70% of the pay and you make 30% of the support, then those are the percentages.


That is a good calculation. Thank you.
