Is an after school babysitter's costs considered as part of child support calculation( Net work relate child care expenses)?

  1. Net work related child care expenses are apart of the child support calculation if you provided these figures to the Court at the time of calculation. If you did not provide these figures to the Court, you may have to fill a motion with the Court to have them included in your child support.

    The information above should not be considered to be legal advice. Rather, it is intended for educational purposes only. The information provided does not constitute a contract for legal services between any parties. Please further note that the answers given are based on the facts provided. There may be additional facts not mentioned which might change the legal issues or consequences.


  2. Both parents are required to be responsible for work related child care which would include the after school baby sitter's costs. You should use a licensed child care provider if you want the Court to require your ex to contribute. If you and your ex do not agree to pay an unlicensed child care provider, the Court could deny the contribution from your ex. You may want to use the aftercare provided by your child's school versus a neighbor (unless your ex agrees to contribute) if you want the Court to compel your ex's contribution.
