Double Recovery for Child Support

In Warren v. Warren, the husband and wife were married for 23 years with two children.  As one of the issues decided by the court in a divorce proceeding, the court ordered husband to pay $3,100 a month in child support.  As additional child support the court ordered husband to purchase and maintain a separate car for each child; provide auto insurance for these vehicles and reimburse wife for 1/2 of all expenses for the kids extracurricular activities. 

The husband appealed the child support issues as well as various property issues.  The Court of Appeals affirmed the $3,100 monthly child support amount finding that although the amount was over the guidelines, it was less than 100% of the proven needs of the children.

That was reversed as was the trial court's additional orders above the $3,100/month child support payments.
