Your daycare costs could be included in child support

Working parents in Missouri likely already understand just how complicated day care matters can be. From finding the right facility to dealing with day care-related illnesses, one of the biggest issues parents face is paying the hefty bill. For divorced parents, this payment can usually be addressed and included in their child support order.

Day care tends to be one of the biggest expenses for working parents, and that expense can be an even greater burden for those who are divorced and living on only one income. However, since child support calculations can be incredibly complicated, few parents are aware that they can include the cost of day care. Many parents find this an easier approach than attempting to split the day care bill.

Whether the primary caregiver was not initially working or if day care costs were left out of the initial child support calculations in error, parents can petition the court for a modification. However, just because a person has gone through the process before does not mean that requesting a modification will be easy. Any time that someone must go through the family law court can be understandably overwhelming and confusing, and is usually best done with experienced guidance.

The cost of a quality day care in Missouri can be seemingly outrageous, and many parents feel the burden of shelling out for care for their children. However, divorced parents -- especially those who act as primary caregivers -- do not have to shoulder these costs alone. We have guided countless parents through the process of ensuring that day care costs are correctly calculated as part of child support payments.
