Personal Living Expenses Law and Legal Definition

Personal living expenses refer to those expenses that are reasonably necessary to maintain health and well-being, to enjoy life's activities, and the capacity to earn money. Personal living expenses do not include recreational expenses

Personal living expenses may reasonably be interpreted to include such items as housing, food, clothing, and transportation, and whatever ancillary expenses would be considered necessary to those broad categories, such as utility costs and vehicle insurance, to list a few examples.
