60/40 shared care - who pays additional expenses:
The Wolf saidIf the kids live with you half the time, and they do bar a few days, then you pay your half the cost of everything .
Kanga saidAnyone feeel like sharing their opinion on this
that's my opinion…
That's exactly my issue as I know that just making CSA payments is paying not only my half but also the ex's half plus a bit left over for herself. Paying 50% of all bills on top of that essentially makes CSA feel like a donation.
However, you then run the gauntlet of the far too typical other parent poisoning the child's or children's mind or minds, with the "the other parent doesn't pay enough etc", so I'd suggest that is a factor that you should consider.
As you have greater than 35% care you should also be getting part of a Family Tax Benefits that are paid for the child or children.
The 'coaching' has been happening from day 1 so that is definitely in the back of my mind. I've never considered FTB as had just assumed my wage being what it is would rule me out of any of those payments.
