I've been divorced for five years now and have very little contact with my former wife or our child. I'm sorry about that but I have a new life now. I've never missed a single child support payment but I'm constantly being asked by my ex to send money to pay for half of some expense she claims is required for the child like medical bills, braces, and other things. I was under the understanding that my child support was supposed to be used for that kind of thing and that I wouldn't have to pay for anything else. That's why I agreed to pay the amount of child support I agreed to. So can I tell by ex it's time for me to cut off the funds? What does Massachusetts law say about the issue of what my child support is supposed to be used for?
