i think any judge would agree that the child returning to school is a good thing and should be supported. To me the NCP owes and should pay.

Personally I would try to make it as reasonable as possible. If you go the route of reducing the support cheques AND getting arrears (ie. overpayment from her).

From what I understand, you still pay support, just a lower amount? and because you overpaid for those three months, she owes you the difference.

Simply take the total amount she owes, divide it by the amount of months you are writing the support cheques for, and reduce each cheque by that amount.

Thanks for the responses everyone...

Quick update...another two weeks have passed and my Ex still will not respond to any of my emails nor return any of my calls on the matter. It has now been over 4 months since I first approached her regarding my interpretation of our agreement and how I believe she needs to reinstate child support. I strongly feel that I am no futehr ahead than I was 4 months ago

Am I better off at this point to commence legal action, or to advise her that I am going to be lowering the child support effective May 01st?

Thanks,

Why bother informing her ahead of time? Simply pick the route you are going, write up an invoice indicating where you came up with the numbers, and give em to her.

If she wants to bother with taking you to court, she looks greedy, and you look reasonable.

Thanks,
Hi Maggie,

I was in the same boat as yourself, not to long ago. My son decided he wasnt going to college, then 8 months later decided to go. I was told by my legal council that I was to re-instate CS. As I did. But, the other peice of info the lawyer gave me was..........a court will give a child 1yr to decide what he would like to do after that year he is on his own............Im sure as parents we would certainly help out our child no matter what the circumstance. Dont think of it as him/her getting money, think of it as helping your child.
