As a non-custodial out of state parent, is there any consideration given to travel expenses and distance when determining child support? Currently our agreement states that neither of us is to pay support to the other because we contribute in other ways; I pay for travel. Now my ex-spouse wants to fight to receive child support from me. I cannot exercise my visitation every month due to the distance. The children are 14 and 16 and my ex insists I pay the $120 round trip airline escort fee so they don't travel alone. He is the one that moved even further away. He is remarried and their combined income is probably at least four to five times more than mine.
