    For whatever the FUCK the custodial parent decides to do with it, provided the children have their needs met.

    Bills and half the fun things and needs of children. And if there's leftover put away for savings.

    To help with living expenses, seeing as how they are missing one set of income.

    It's meant to cover a portion of their living expenses.

    Medical support and extra curriculars are separate and should be split evenly.

    I voted other: it depends on how well off the family is.  If the custodial parent doesn't really need the help, it should be put away till they're adults.  If they're comfortable but could use the money for vacations, then that's it.  If they're broke, it should pay for clothes, bills, sports, etc...
