hello
He cannot claim any further money / assets from you as the limitation period to make a claim, under
family law. In respect of child support, heres the issue, custody is 50/50, under child support provisions.

All you can do here is have him sign a binding financial child support agreement to have him pay at the very least the private school fees.
Other than that, all you can do is reduce the time the children spend with the father, and have the child support agency chase him, which of course is not the best for the children.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
