is there any way to request that the custodial parent show a receipt or proof of cost for child care? The child is allegedly going to a friend for child care which is costing a lot of money. Is there any way to request that she show the court proof of the amount she is claiming that she pays?

The court will accept testimony as proof of child care expenses, but you are within your rights to obtain evidence via discovery, subpoenas, etc. You can also subpoena the day care provider to testify and to produce records regarding payment.
