No one likes unpleasant surprises such as a big expense, even for your child. It applies to co-parents too. Even though they want what is best for their child, limited financial resources can make it difficult for them to come up with the money right away. This can lead to an unpleasant conversation that may impact your co-parenting relationship. Even if they are legally required to split and pay a large expense, as a courtesy you can get your co-parent's pre-approval to avoid a conflict. This way there won't be any excuses when you ask them to pay their share. And you can do it from a mobile phone, PC, or tablet.
