What a ridiculous thing to say. Ok, let's assume the mother buys clothes and doesn't work. She still must go buy diapers, food, pay rent, clothes for the baby, doctor's visits, and a million other things. Ever think about that? If the father sends say, $500 a month, let's pretend she uses every penny on herself!.....The baby still needs all that other stuff and she's responsible to take care of it. Next time think before posting.

What I'm trying to tell you is that it doesn't really matter where the child support money goes, as long as the baby has everything it needs. Bills paid, gas in the car, medicine, formula, etc. If the mother spends some on a new outfit or a dinner, that's her choice....as long as the baby's well taken care of. Have a nice day.

Im sure he understands all this, there are a lot of great answers to this question already. Obviously Benmin is just joking around. If you cant see this you are very foolish.

Typically most women do not receive that much child support. You have to leave a pretty wealthy person to get much.

The care and support of your child - which means that you can use it for pretty much anything, clothing, shelter, utilities, food, or anything else specifically for the child. I don't know that it's actually designated from a legal standpoint though. It's just the money that is supposed to help the primary caregiver make sure that the child's needs are properly met.

It's there to help support the child, clothing food etc. If a person is getting child support they can use it however they see fit though. As long as it isn't for anything illegal. You can't get mad at your ex and sue them because they made a car payment or bought a television with the money you gave them seeing as it typically goes into their bank account with the rest of their money.
