My child is 16, participates in club soccer, takes saxophone lessons, is involved in school clubs, plays high school soccer and takes AP classes.  These are all activities she has routinely participated in for a long time.  I am trying to determine if these types of expenses are part of the basic child support or is child support designed for a roof over her head, food in her mouth and clothes on her back.  I would like to include something in our divorce decree to have these expenses split between her dad and me but need to know if child support is supposed to cover these.  Her dad is reluctant to consider them separately since he thinks the amount of child support from the calculation based on salary covers these.  We aren’t divorced yet but going through the process.
