Default Section 7 expenses extraordinary

Hi Everyone

Just a quick question, I pay for 80% off my kids sports, but i was wondering if when they need all new equipment if that also means the same , I pay for the sign up and team fees 80% off that. But i was curious about the equipment as the ex went out and bought really expensive stuff?

Also does the child support get added to her income when calculating the S7 expenses? I pay her $1070.00 per month as it stands and she only makes 20,000 or less if she can

Sports are generally not special nor are they extraordinary. If you cannot simply afford to have your children in sports then they shouldn't be. You nor the other parent should go bankrupt over your children's sports. So, it may have to simply get cut.

Unless you have a child that is going to the Olympics... Then you should be getting sponsors.

No. Child support is not a form of income. It does not show up on Line 150.

Good Luck!

Just pay what you think is reasonable. Cost out what you would have paid for the equipment and send that amount with a polite note indicating that you will be happy to help out with the purchasing of equipment in the future.

Tayken is correct, unless your child plays at a level that indicates a possible professional career, sports are neither special or extraordinary.

However, a word of caution: Most judges don't actually understand section 7, and often consider most extracurricular activities to be special and extraordinary.

As already mentioned, CS is not income. For proportional spending it should be considered income of course, but I've long since given up trying to make mathematical sense of family law.
