Benefits of Paying Child Support Through Cent

By law divorced and separated co-parents have to share children's expenses that are not covered by court-ordered child support payments. Cent eliminates the need for manually managing receipts for expenses such as dental and medical bills, requests for additional child support payments, and record-keeping of those payments. The manual management of child support payments can cause several issues, such as:

Misunderstandings - Miscommunication about the expenses and split agreements occur when they are made verbally. Who is going to pay for what can be left for interpretation thus causing misunderstandings.

Delays - Manual transmission of bills related to children's expenses and payments can be lost or cause a delay in payment. In case of a recurring expense such as a monthly tutoring bill, a delay can cause your child to miss out.

Lack of Accountability - Since there is no documentation of expense reimbursement requests, a co-parent can easily refuse to pay their share.

Misallocation of Funds - Similarly, if payments are made manually with cash or a check the other party can refuse to recognize them as the payments for the intended expense.

Legal Actions - If the relationship between you and your co-parent is not very amicable, the dispute over children's expenses can easily end up in court costing both parties thousands of dollars.

Negative Effect on Children - It also leaves a bad impression on children that their parents cannot manage their finances.

With Cent all the issues discussed above will disappear magically. All expenses and their payment status are recorded. Both parties can reimburse each other using Cent as well. There are no misunderstandings anymore.
