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.
