What is work-related childcare?

Work-related childcare is a term used in relation to a credit included when child support is set. The Child Support Guidelines define “work-related childcare” in Tennessee as:

“Expenses for the care of the child for whom support is being determined which are due to employment of either parent or non-parent caretaker.”

Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1240-02-04-.02(29)(a).

The Tennessee Child Support Guidelines further state that the childcare expenses “must be necessary for either parent’s employment, education or vocational training”, and the court must also determine that the expenses are appropriate and reasonable, given the parents’ financial abilities and the lifestyle the child would have enjoyed (or did enjoy) if the parents were still living together.
