Saratoga Child Support Attorney Examines Extracurricular Activities
Clients often come to me as a Saratoga Child Support Attorney, and ask how extracurricular activities are handled. In New York State, extracurricular activities are neither mandatory nor discretionary, so the court will not order the non-custodial parent to contribute to extracurricular activities. This also means that the custodial parent can’t be ordered to pay for those items out of child support. If your child is involved in extracurricular activities that are important to him or her, it’s a good idea to work with your attorney toward negotiating with your spouse for payment of those items after the divorce.
