Indiana Child Support - New Guidelines and Controlled Expenses

I have yet to dive into the new Indiana Child Support Guidelines but All Things Family Law has started with his

Indiana Divorce & Family Law Blog: New Child Support Guidelines - Controlled Expenses
One very positive change was that the guidelines are now clear as to who must pay for the 'controlled expenses' associated with raising a child, such as the winter coat and the basic school costs. Furthermore, the definition of 'controlled expenses' should help clear up disputes about who pays for school books and basic clothes. Parents will decide who pays for these costs by designating a 'primary physical custodian,' or if they share equal time with the child(ren), they will need to designate someone as the person who will pay the 'controlled expenses'.
