In a family law proceeding, many parents forget to include “add ons,” direct costs associated with child care such as child care costs or transportation costs. These costs have a direct affect on child support. For instance, costs of a babysitter may be included as an add on and may be used to increase child support above the normal calculation for child support.  Make sure these costs are documented and included.
