Greiner v. Keller: Child Support; Childcare Costs
Greiner v. Keller (Child Support; Childcare Costs )
California Court of Appeal, First District
Published Opinion, (2019) 36 Cal.App.5th 332
The mother sought an award for child support and childcare costs from the father under Family Code section 4062 so she could obtain a paralegal certification with the goal of becoming self-supporting. The family court denied the request because the mother was already employed and the court did not think the statute applied when a parent pursues education to expand existing employment skills. The court of appeal reversed because Family Code section 4062 requires an award of childcare costs if incurred related to a parent’s “employment” or “for reasonably necessary education or training for employment skills.” The statute is not limited to education or training for a parent’s current occupation.
