Their baby was born in Sept and they are happily househunting. He finally left 4/03.
Medical co-pays, counseling, medications, glasses, etc., are also to be split 50/50 and not included in child support..
I'm sure you can always come up with your own rules if you want, but my attorney has said the above is what will apply to me.. Unless it will benefit me, I'm going to insist on whatever is "standard."
I also make sure he buys certain clothing items even though he only has them 4 days a month. He purchases all shoes and all pajamas, and pays for haircuts. I pay for everything else.
WH says marriage is over: May 15, 2009.

Please keep in mind he makes 90K a year and I am a middle-aged SAHM trying to re-enter the job market. Yeah, there's an income disparity, I'd say. And he laughs all the way to the bank about it.

Per our temporary order, we share joint custody. 50/50 physical and legal. And for the last month, i have had DS16 full time becuase he refuses to go to his mom's.
Per the temporary order, I pay for the following:
I pay just over $1100/month CS/SS for three kids. (Oldest is 18 and legally does not need to be included, but itís not like he ceased to exist at 18, so heís included in the CS formula.)
her cell phone
her car insurance
her car payment
health insurance premiums and all medical and dental expenses not covered by insurance (including counseling for the kids and her as well)
orthodontics for DS16
All tuition expenses, school lunches, and school supplies
Piano lessons for DS11
After school care for DS11
Her attorneyís fee
Not included, but I pay (or paid) anyway:
All sports expenses including $325 for DS16 summer baseball, and uniform on top of that.
DS18ís lifeguard certificate
Insurance for kidsí vehicles
Kidsí cell phones
Our 2012 income tax bill ($1100)
All haircuts and most of the clothes (sheís bought a few birthday gifts on her own)
DS18ís college testing and enrollment
My STBXWW has a full time job as a public school teacher. Any time the kids ask her for money, she tells them she has none and to ask me. I donít feel guilty about only paying the minimum in CS because I pay for everything else, which, Iím sure will include most if not all college expense.
Also, it's just easier to pay for the extracurriculars myself than have to listen to a sob story about how she's broke, or give her an avenue to lash out at me because she's not liking where she's landing.
