Raising kids is expensive and no one enjoys paying child support to the other parent. However, often paying that child support each month is far cheaper than actually having primary custody of the child and having the additional “hidden” costs.
If you are considering seeking a change in custody to keep from paying more in child support, you should consider the real costs of raising a child. You might want to heed the advice of the old adage “don’t cut your nose off to spite your face.”
In this episode, we discuss the propriety of seeking a change in custody just to keep from having to pay child support. We explore some of the hidden costs involved in raising kids and explain why having primary custody of a child is often far more expensive than paying child support.
