Dad’s Divorce answered a reader’s question regarding child support, and whether it covers extra-curricular activities and additional expenses. The short answer is that it depends upon what is written in the court order, as well as the specific laws for each state. It could range anywhere from having to pay all of the expenses, to a portion of them or even none. An attorney could help you review the order if you are unable to determine the amount yourself.
Men’s Divorce published a new article on marital waste claims, which try to prove that one spouse deserves a larger portion of the property settlement due to the other spouse’s squandering of marital assets. While claims of waste are common leading up to trial, they do not make it to the courtroom very often due to the stringent requirements for what can actually be considered waste and how substantial the value of wasted assets typically needs to be.
