Divided Billing Project

One common hassle between separated parents is each parent getting a receipt for a child’s expense. Receipts are required for taxes, proof of payment, and personal accounting.

Repeatedly, separated parents are faced with the situation where each has contributed a portion of an expense, but a receipt was issued in only one of their names.

The Fair Parenting Project investigated this problem and found that many accounting software programs designed for recreational, educational and medical/dental services do not allow for divided or split billing.

The Fair Parenting Project has launched a campaign of contacting accounting software companies asking that this feature be added in their next upgrade. Bookmark this page for future updates.
