Child support typically covers expenses incurred by the child and any day to day costs the child may need for care. This may include day care, clothing, food, school costs, transportation, as well as the rent or utilities incurred by the custodial parent. There is no list of specific items that can child support can be used for.

Child support is supposed to cover your half of the care for the child while the other parent provides the other half of the child's care. The more time you spend with the child, the less money you will have to pay.
