We were advised NOT to do it this way by DH
's attorney after finding out that he had been paying $229/month towards daycare for 2 years, when the children hadn't been in daycare at all (ages 12 and 11 at the time). She said that he would have been in contempt since the daycare portion was paid as part of the total child support award. (State is Florida)
Also, the only back portion he rec'd was from the date of filing. EW faked a letter to DH, back dating it 2 years, saying that the children were no longer in daycare. Later in mediation the EW agreed that she owed DH 2 years of daycare (and obviously admitting her guilt that she had produced a fake letter), but refused to pay the money. Only way to get it would've been to take her to court. Spending another $6,000 to "possibly" gain $5,500 was not a win-win situation for us or the children.
