In a recent article on moms.com, Pittsburgh family law attorney Joseph R. Williams shares suggestions for easily divvying up expenses beyond child support with your child’s other parent.

Co-parents can pave the way for a cordial relationship by doing a few simple things to improve communication:

  • Keep documentation of all expenses to avoid miscommunication between parents. Having a paper trail helps avoid conflict.
  • Discuss expenses with your ex prior to incurring them. No one likes a surprise hit to their budget. It’s better to share information on expenses openly than to appear secretive about shared costs.
