In SupportPay you can also track personal expenses. Personal expenses are expenses that may not be related to a child and may be directly related to a parent.
To track a personal expense, when creating a new expense, check the check box next to "Personal".
A reason a parent may want to track personal expenses is so they can provide documentation on their current household expenses, outside the scope of child support.
For example, if a parent is seeking to modify a child support order and wishes to show the court documentation on their current household expenses they can track these expenses as personal expenses. This would provide information to a legal professional the current financial obligations of the parent, in order to justify a child support review or modification.
Personal expenses are:
- Not shared with the other parent
- The amount owed is only allocated to the parent that chose to track the item as personal
