Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you today.
Please may I ask - was the signed agreement a court order? sealed and approved by the court?
Thank you for your response.
Please may I also ask - what level of education is his daughter undertaking? is it A level or equivalent? or a university or equivalent course?
If the document was only a private agreement and not a court order - then your husband is not bound to pay any further maintenance. If he choose to pay his daughter directly then he could do. The mother would not be able to refer the case to the Child Maintenance Service as his daughter is in university education.
If it is a consent order that was approved but the court then it is important to establish the date it was made.
If the consent order contained an agreed order for child maintenance and was made before 3rd March 2003 he cannot opt out after 12 months and if your order was made after 3rd March 2003 he can.
