Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.
Did the legal separation order specify as to when and what child care / preschool expenses both parents would be liable for?
Thank you for your follow up.
So basically you came to a verbal agreement with your spouse as far as covering 50% of the preschool cost up to this point?
Generally, unless the court had ordered a parent who doesn't have residential custody of the minor child(ren) to contribute to the cost of preschool / childcare facility, then there would not be any legal obligation to do so and if the parent with residential custody wants to pursue the issue, she would have to file a petition with the family court which is local to where the minor children are located and the judge will review all of the factors and testimony / arguments from both parents and will determine whether the parent who doesn't have residential custody should be ordered to contribute to any additional childcare / preschool.
I wish you the best of luck!
