Pre move - I had alternate weekends and one evening per week. This was never enforced by court order merely something that was agreed in mediation. The intention going forward would be approx 10 visits per year fitted around the French school year. (ie 3 days in half term, 1 week in summer holidays etc).
I suggested to her this weekend that rather that continue to pay the spousal maintenance after Sept, I would contribute £1000 per year as a 50% cost towards the schooling costs. From what I understand French schools do not require uniforms so I thought this was a reasonable figure. My thinking behind this was that she could buy a house (with the 350K) and rent it out earning at least £1200pm. She would also receive my child maintenance at £600, taking her income upto £1800. If she got a part time job (which she refuses to do) she should earn at least £500pm + potentially some tax credits. This would give her an income of £2300pm which wouldnt be too far away from mine £2500pm and living with someone else she would have almost zero outgoings, where as I would have my own household bills to pay.
It was a 4 year agreement, started Sept 2014 and is due to finish Sept 2018.
I dont believe so.
How much is it likely to cost me to take this through the court process?
