My ex-spouse wants me to share half of school expenses, clothes, supplies, etc. Isn’t that what child support is for in Florida?

It depends. Were these expenses addressed in your court order? If not, you can argue that you are not required to pay for these expenses. However, if you have court ordered time sharing, it is common to share uncovered costs either equally with the other parent or pro-rata, which means pursuant to your percentage of you and the other party’s combined income.
