If you are going through a divorce, there's a lot to keep track of. When kids are involved, it's easy to lose track of everything that has been settled and everything that still needs to be decided. One of the key ways to keep yourself on track is to understand what your child support will cover and what you need to make arrangements for with your co-parent. You can include these expenses in a parenting plan to make it easier to reference them, or you two can negotiate them as they arise. Just like everything else that arises from co-parenting after a divorce, it's generally easier if you plan ahead.
