The bottom line is there are benefits to filing for osap. Kid doesnt have to use the loan but they have to apply for the grants and tuition reduction. They are responsible for a third of the costs however they want to pay it.

If she files her income tax all the kid needs is her line 150 so the whole not wanting to disclose is bullshit.

He needs to send her a strongly worded email stating he expects they will apply for osap to be eligible for the tuition credit and federal/provincial grants. Based on an initial estimate (the calculator info), that total is in excess of $XXXX. The tuition credit is a benefit to all three of you and reduces the cost of school. Child is responsible for one third of the total cost and as parents you want your children to grow up understanding responsibility. If she fails to do so, you will consider reducing the costs claimed by the estimated amounts and any further monies she feels she is owed, she can let a judge decide.

As for CS, thats a slippery one. My partners lawyer said no cs and his agreement says no cs. If your partners agreement says no cs then no cs is payable while child is away. That cost is covered in the share of living expenses he will pay.

Your partners ex can say whatever she wants about what hes going to pay for in her mind. The courts will disagree with her and then she may even be on the hook for costs. Shes not the first one to pull this crap. My partners ex played a similar game last year and when she did finally speak to a lawyer she had to accept what my partner provided which was in line with case law.

Firstly, our separation agreement does not state anything regarding what happens to the support payments while a child is away a school. Considering the fact that she is adamantly opposed to OSAP, do you think that a motion to change now is something to consider since I have three children that will be attending post secondary.

How does she get the s7 expenses paid now? Submit the receipt to you and then you pay?

Kid has to apply for osap whether your ex wants it or not. Send the email and see what her response is.
