The school in question were paid a cash deposit by husband in Jan 2010. My son started at the school in Sept 2010, I had to withdraw him in 2011 at the end of the Spring Term. He was being teased and persicuted by the staff for his learning problem and he has serious health issues with his Heart. I had told them this as it is serious as he can suddenly collapse and in fact did at school. I had him educated for a term in my school and then a year if a school for SEN to recover.
The fees for the last term as he was not there were not piad. What I did not know at that stage was the fees for the term before which should have been apid out of my Exs business account and the money was there were stopped by him.
He went bankrupt without telling me in November 2011.
We then lost our house.
I asked him to leave our temp house in Jan 2012.
In the time he was home and trying to cover all up he destroyed all paperwork.
I then starting getting letters extra from the schs solicitors I have always replied filled in forms to do with income.
I get no money form the ex despite having 2 kids. He has managed to con the CSA and I have sent copies of letters saying he does not pay.
I am a teacher I do not have a huge income.
I went to court in September 2013 to try to say I could not pay the judge did not believe me.
I had paperwork to prove it.
I hear nothing till January 2015.
Fill in forms - done
They still want money I cannot get.
I went to Battersea library in Feb Half Term for free legal advice. The lawyer said I should have been sent paperwork from court case, I should have been told why they go quite and then chase etc.
I e mailed all this to the other side and the response was so defensive.
I would like t o send that to you.
I said on their questions and stance I wanted to get more advice before I replied.
I emailed them before Easter to say I was still waiting for the correct response and would be back to them this week.
I need to know my correct and exact position. I cannot pay. My ex should be paying.
His response is very rude.
I have been told they have 6 years to claim this money owed. What happens after that 6 years and as that time comes will they become aggressive.
The Head of the school owns two schools and earns a fortune.
I wrote to him at the start and asked him to please understand my position in all of this. He was not interested. It feels like a personal vendetta because I took my son away and therefore questioned his school. I have never been to the press about my sons treatment there but sometimes wish I had.
I need to know that I understand that with Bankruptcy and joint claims the other signee the other partner must be a signee, I NEVER signed any paperwork with the school I never agreed on paper to any T and Cs as I was at work when my husband signed. I have a copy of this paper. Therefore the claim should be towards him as he signed not me. NO ONE will answer this question,
Only verbally to my ex. He went for an assessment day. passed then we had to take in deposit that was all done without me. I have no idea he drives taxis for a local firm where he lives in Marlow and does Blue Badge Tour Guiding in his 7 seater through an agency, I have no idea which one but it deals with Americans.
I haven't seen any court case paperwork. Do you mean the one I set up to say I could not pay? This was advice from the debt charity I dealt with. They tried to help by getting me to send a template letter to the school saying I could pay a very small amount, pcm He rejected this.
I have never seen anything as he tore everything up or got rid of it.
At one point I asked for all this stuff and they were very unhelpful.
They will only demand from me they are very reluctant to send me or give me stuff that will tell me facts.
Does that help?
