Do you have a budding Monet or a young golfer preparing to take on the Masters? If so getting divorced won’t end your financial obligations to pay for lessons and tournaments. In Plomaritis v. Plomaritis, the N.C. Court of Appeals upheld the lower court’s finding that the father was in arrears on child support where he had failed to pay his share of his daughter’s golf expenses. The daughter was a golf prodigy and at the time of the divorce the lower court found that the normal child support guidelines did not apply. The father would be responsible for a portion of the child’s golf expenses.
