Should I ask my ex to help with daycare?

I’ve recently put my 2 children in daycare. My kids dad has them every other Thursday and Friday and he will be sending them to daycare as well while he’s at work. My question is should he pay for those 2 days, or is it not even worth fighting over? He hasn’t offered to pay and it won’t be a lot of help but it would be some help. I just didn’t know if it would be worth fighting over.

Yes. That is part of it. And cs dont always cover cost of their needs plus daycare so yes he should help.

Even if he does pay child support the right thing to do is pay half for all the major expenses

For sure it’s his days!

He needs to pay for the days he takes them while he is at work.

That’s something you’d have to weigh the pros and cons with depending on your compare ting relationship with him. Personally I think if this is an issue you should’ve talked to him before enrolling them into daycare, involving him in the process, finding a place he can afford etc.

You have kids together equal share

He should pay for half of every day!

He needs to pay for his days

I would ask him to pay for his days. I wouldn’t pay for days that they are with them and he is taking them to daycare. That is his responsibility. Just like it’s yours on your days

Talk to him and see if he is willing it doesn’t hurt to ask but don’t be relying on it

Um yes. Thats his time… He should be doing half the cost of the whole week really

Wouldn’t hurt to try. If not, then I guess oh well 🤷
