As an experienced Saratoga Child Support Lawyer, questions often arise as to whether the non-custodial parent is obligated to pay for clothing.
- Parents who have a shared custodial arrangement, with a reduced amount of child support paid, the parent receiving reduced support might expect the other parent to pay for some clothing.
- A shared custodial arrangement with no child support being paid tends to address all of the things that would be paid for by both parents.
- If the non-custodial parent is making a very low basic support payment, it may be difficult for the custodial parent to pay for all of the child’s clothing.
- This is not an open and shut issue, but the judge cannot order a non-custodial parent to pay for clothing above and beyond child support, and parties should make sure to consult with their attorney regarding their rights.
