I have another question. The Temporary Guardianship papers were not filed through a court. They are just the standard forms offline that you have notarized. Both my fiance and myself signed them. We have since separated and I am solely caring for this child. He does not want to continue to offer support for him.
He sent over a Personal Release form today and asked me to sign it. It basically states that I cannot ask him for any care for my daughter or the child we have guardianship of.
We were together for 8 years.
Is this possibly something I should pursue with him? I do need help with the child we both agreed to care for but he is not willing to do so.
He also state he would contribute $1000 dollars a month for my daughter's college but he wants me to sign an agreement that I will give him all of the interest from my investment property mortgages of approximately $34,000 in exchange for this money annually.
We were not married nor did we portray ourselves to be. We did not file taxes jointly, have credit cards together, etc.
He carried health insurance health insurance for my daughter, he and I. He also paid for 4 years of her private high school tuition.
