Omaha Nebraska Divorce LawyerQuestion:

I am required to pay my ex-wife for work-related child care expenses when she works and my child would otherwise be left home alone.

I pay child care costs, even though my ex-wife allows my child to stay home alone most of the time. I am fine with him staying home alone for a few hours after school as he is old enough and responsible enough.

So shouldn't I be allowed to stop paying for child care costs as ordered by the divorce decree if my ex-wife is only sparingly using expensive child care?

Houston divorce lawyerQuestion:

This is a tax question related to the 2013 Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account and claiming the child as a dependent.

I share joint custody with my ex-wife, but she will be claiming our son as a dependent for 2013 taxes. I am considering a Flexible Spending Account for Dependent Care (daycare) and want to know if I can do this next year since she will be claiming our son as dependent on her taxes.

Will my ex-wife's child tax credit interfere with my use of a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account?

georgia divorce lawyerQuestion:

I am ordered to pay child support in addition to half of all child care costs, which can be interpreted in many different ways.

My children attend programs before and after school that provide care but are not technically called "daycare."

So am I responsible for those costs? How do child support laws define child care costs?

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

During my ex-wife's parenting time, she often has her elderly parents look after our small children in lieu of daycare.

I'm fine with her using family members to provide child care, but I have concerns over my children’s safety while with their grandparents, who are unhealthy and too old to properly care for toddlers.

Do I have any say in who will be watching our children during my ex-wife's parenting time?

oklahoma city divorce lawyerQuestion:

My ex-wife wants to pull our children out of daycare so her boyfriend can be a "stay-at-home dad" and watch our kids all day.

I told her I am not comfortable with her boyfriend staying home alone with our children. I'd rather have them with a child care professional.

What are my options to prevent this from happening?
