I forgot about that neat little trick. It is so incredibly unfair. Either allow all family law cost orders to be enforced, or none. Personally, I would prefer all, but none might be easier.

I don't think my kids became interesting on the phone until they were about 8-9 years old. I don't call them often (since I have 50% custody) but it is rarely all that satisfying.

I get the feeling that you can mostly ignore a costs order as long as you plan on not going back to court.

If you intend to go back to court, and you have an unpaid costs order, that makes things...

Generally, there are two methods to get your way:

1) Come to an agreement
2) Go to court and force the issue

If ex won't do (1), then you have to go for (2).

I think we are saying the same thing. Generally, the non-custodial parent will be responsible for a reasonable daycare cost. A nanny is substantially more expensive than daycare, so it is unlikely...

How much of a difference will these new calculations make?

I'm not sure why rockscan said you needed permission. If you need child care, then you get child care. The case law is full of parents putting their kids in daycare and sticking the ex with the...

You can always request. The other side may or may not agree to the request. If the other side disagrees, you may need a judge to decide if the postponement is reasonable.

A nanny provides benefits beyond that of simple child care. I would imagine that you would have to consider what portion of the nanny expense is for child care, and then count that as a S7 expense....

Is there an active custody battle?

Yes

You make the kids do all the educating that is humanely possible. You do not want to get the label of the "anti-education" parent.

Best case:

Instead of making 120k and paying 30k in support, leaving you with 90k, you make 70k and pay 15k in support, leaving you 55k. You have lost 35k. Congratulations!
