Keeping track of child support owed
So my ex-husband is supposed to pay a small ammount child support each month. He sometimes does, sometimes doesn't. I would like to keep track of the support owed within Ynab, is that possible? If yes, what kind of account should I use for it and how to use it for this? It just feels wrong to simply delete the monthly transaction when he doesn't pay and then, well, nothing besides jot it down in a notebook.
Tracking account with a monthly recurring inflow for the amount he's supposed to pay. (This is effectively an asset.) When he does pay, record the inflow in checking (or wherever) as a transfer from the tracking account categorized as To Be Budgeted.
Your call on what the starting account balance should be, but it should be positive (or $0 if you're starting from a clean slate).
