Under the court order it is £245 a month which I believe is what he paid her. To which she spent it on socialising and not for what it was intended (to support her uni costs, food etc). This payment was only agreed in court last nov as he refused to pay the correct amount. My concern is if he is not bound to a court order, he will stop or reduce the payment whenever he chooses (as that has been his pattern over the last 15yrs). If I let the court order slip now, I am concerned that I will not have a case to challenge his actions in the future if he should refuse to pay.
I have suggested that if he chooses to pay her directly, he becomes the named parent for liability for unpaid bills. He has refused this.
i was left with a lot of debt when she dropped out of university and my ex husband did nothing to help with this payment, he just stopped his money. I cannot keep doing this, it is putting me under financial stress
One of my concerns is he will stop sometime in the 3 years if i let the conditions of the court order change. then technically where do i stand. his history is not the best.
What about the fact i am left with the bills if she cannot pay them
