Bristol County Child Support Lawyer Discusses if Child Support Covers School Clothing

Question:

My daughter is in the middle of a bad divorce and she asked her ex to help with school clothing but he says “that’s what child support is for.” ¬†Is he right?

Answer:

School clothes are typically purchased by the custodial parent who is receiving child support (unless the agreement provides otherwise, which is rare).  An exception might be made for uniforms.
