I pay 65% of all work related daycare expenses incurred by my ex on behalf of our child. First of all she sends me copies of receipts and the receipts have no daycare name or signature on them from the daycare so I don’t even know if they are legit. For all I know she went and bought a receipt book and makes them out herself. Some weeks I don’t even get a physical copy, instead she sends me an email stating what I owe. Shouldn’t I be receiving actual receipts and not copies? Second, the daycare has field trips that they go on during daycare but these field trip expenses are separate and not included in the normal daycare that i pay. She says that these are a daycare expense and that I’m responsible for 65% of it and wants me to reimburse her. Wouldn’t those costs be part of the “Extracurricular Activity Expense” which she is responsible for?
This is what our court documents state:
“Defendant (me) Shall pay to Plaintiff sixty-five percent (65%) of all work-related daycare expenses incurred by Plaintiff on behalf of the minor child. Plaintiff shall provide receipts from the daycare provider itself on the first and fifteenth of each month to the defendant, evidencing the daycare expenditures for the previous two week period, and defendant shall thereafter make direct payments to Plaintiff within fourteen days of his obtaining physical possession of said receipts.
Extracurricular Activity Expense:
“The custodial parent is responsible for 100% of any extracurricular activity, or any other day to day expenses related to the care of the minor children.”
