Thank you for your response.
My daughter left school in March 2011 and did not take her A levels. She was receiving counselling and being treated for depression for issues related to her father and the divorce. She then commenced working in a pub for the next couple of years.
Following this she got back on track with her original plan to become a primary school teacher and volunteered at a school from January to July 2013 before securing a paid position as a teaching assistant from Sept 13 to current date. During this time she has undertaken a vocational qualification which has been accepted by her chosen university in place of A levels. She has secured a place at an oversubscribed university based on the skills and knowledge she has developed working in schools and in undertaking this qualification.
I think the most important thing I want to impart to you is that she went through a very challenging and difficult time and has come through that and really worked hard to get on track with where she would have been had the family circumstances not changed.
I hope that this is sufficient information.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I don't have any contact with him but he recently secured a new job and told my son that he is earning in excess of £80,000 a year plus expenses and benefits.
He has also received £59,000 in house settlement funds and has just sold a house left to him by his Aunt and will receive a minimum of £10,000 plus a third share of monies after other bequests.
He is remarried with no prospect of further children and his partner earns around £30,000
Yes I would be happy for him to do this. In fact in my text to him I explained that she is setting up a student account and that payments should go directly to her.
She is an adult now and I strongly believe that she should get the money directly.
