I pay half of the childcare costs currently. During the school year, it’s pretty easy to figure out. For the summer, my ex told me his 17 year old step daughter is watching my daughter for $400/month. I’ve found out through my daughter that other sibling mags are there sometimes too.
First, do I owe when he can’t provide a receipt as stated in the order? If so, do I owe the full amount if other kids are there?
I imagine that the cost for the sibling is far less than formal childcare, so it may be a good deal for you to pay your share of the $400
This submission is not, nor is it intended as, legal advice. You should consult a lawyer to address your legal issue.
One would need to read your court orders to see what your mutual obligations may be towards day care costs, whether during the school year or summer. What would your alternatives be to day care for your child if the step daughter wasn't watching your child. As stated by the other attorney, $400 for the summer months, seems low and more affordable than a traditional day care center.
