In Florida, when calculating childcare cost in regards to child support, are parents allowed to calculate in babysitters that they pay for things other than work? In other words, can a parent factor in a babysitters cost when using them for a night out on the town? Or are they only supposed to calculate it in for work-related purposes only?
Typically child care expenses are limited to those expenses related to traditional day care, however if a parent works weekends that may be a babysitter. So, no, babysitting expenses for dates are not ones that should be included in child care costs on the child support worksheet.
