Do I have a case whereby my son-in-law requested on the birth

Customer Question

Do I have a case whereby my son-in-law requested on the birth of my daughter's baby, to resign 50% of my employment to care for her and he (just himself) would reimburse me. However a year later, on separation from my daughter, he has renaiged and will not pay anything more.

My name isXXXXX and I'm happy to help with your question today. I need to ask you some preliminary questions to be able to help you.

How long was this arrangement agreed to last? Did he pay you for the first12 months?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes he paid me after my daughter took 3 months maternity leave and I then took over the baby's care. The agreement was to then help out when she joined nursery by collecting her at lunchtime for 5 afternoons per week on alternate weeks when my daughter had access and when my son-in-law had access I still collected her from nursery and he picked her up from my house after finishing work when there was never any eye contact or conversation on his part!?

Unfortunately I have had to opt out as I am now very busy with other customers. Another expert will be along to assist you soon.

Thank you for your question.

I'm sorry that the earlier JA expert was incapable of assisting you. I am a solicitor in Scotland and will try to help you with this.

Can you tell me if your grandchild's father was actually employing you?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi


 


Not sure what is meant by 'employing me' (?) I was being paid monthly - hope that answers your question.

Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
What does he owe you if he was in fact paying you?
