Do I Have To Account For How I Spend My Ex’s Child Support Payments?

In New York, the custodial parent does not have to provide any documentation or explanation of how child support payments are used.

This approach likely saves New York courts from having to decide countless arguments about minor issues, like spending money on brand name goods instead of less expensive generic items, or purchasing foods or drinks for the household one parent disapproves of.

If your former spouse is complaining to you or the court about how you are supporting your child, call the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino at 718-523-1111 for a free consultation with a Queens divorce specialist.
