Car Repairs can be Extraordinary Expenses

Additional extraordinary expenses may be added pro-rata to a parent’s child support obligation in a Colorado Divorce.  In this age of extensive cutbacks by school districts, a situation could arise where a minor child is attending a school by agreement of the parties, or one that meets the child’s special needs, and which requires special travel expenses. Frequently, the child of age, may be driving themselves to and from such a school. In such a situation, and if the car breaks down, the auto repairs costs, could be ordered by a court to be divided between the parties as a reason and necessary extraordinary expense.
