If My Ex Now Works From Home, Why Do I Still Need to Contribute to Daycare Expenses?

If My Ex Now Works From Home, Why Do I Still Need to Contribute to Daycare Expenses?

Dear Attorneys,

My ex works from home now. For some reason, my children are still being sent to daycare. She has the option to watch them at no cost to us. I shouldn’t still have to pay for work-related day-care expenses, right?

Sincerely,

Essential Worker

 

Dear Essential,

While it may seem like an easy decision to keep your children home since your ex now works form home, childcare may still be a necessity. It can be extremely challenging to work from home, be efficient and productive, and also make sure the kids are cared for, stimulated, and learning appropriately. Working, albeit from home, is still working. Thus, in the court’s eyes, work-related daycare is likely still a valid expense.

Those work-related day-care expenses are still part of your agreement, and you will still need to contribute, barring a substantial change of circumstances or other situation in which it would be in your child(ren)’s best interest to not have them enrolled in daycare.
