If Parents Are Divorced Who Pays Kids Car Insurance
In a divorce with teenage kids of driving age, the parent who owns the car driven by the teenager must pay the car insurance. If both parents own cars that will be driven by the teenager, then each parent must insure their respective vehicles. Additionally, if one parent has more time with the teenager, that parent is usually required to add the teen to his or her insurance policy. This expense can be included in child support computations or the parents can agree to have the teen pay for his or her share of the insurance. Alternatively, a separate policy can be purchased for the teen by either parent and the expense either added to child support computations or made the responsibility of the teenager.
