“The parties will only contribute to Child’s additional special or extraordinary expenses if the parties consent to the activity and expense in advance, in writing. Neither party will unreasonably withhold consent. If the parties cannot agree, they will use section 6 of the original agreement entitled “dispute resolution” to resolve the issue”

Ok so like I said tell her that she made a unilateral decision and kid is attending school away from home at an additional expense. You will pay your share of the reasonable expenses but you expect kid to pay a share as they chose a program away from home with an increased cost. If she does not agree you are willing to attend mediation or she is welcome to file a motion to change. You ignore her lawyers texts. Never heard of a lawyer sending texts.

Are you still paying full table child support?

I had always sent her 12 post-dated cheques at the start of the year for support. This year was different because we did acknowledge that a school decision would be coming so we agreed that Ill send her cheques up to the end of August. So that is as far as I have contributed so far.
thanks so much for your input and recommendations.

No she has not asked for any support cheques at all. Just the 50% share of School tuition and residence.
She did mention that our monthly support amount should be reviewed but I shot that down pretty quickly as I told her that support ends when the child is living away from home for school.

If its 1/3, 1/3 and 1/3, that means child, mother and father each pay 1/3.
What happens if child's grandparent set up an RESP. Does that belong to the child or can my ex claim that her extended family member's RESP counts as her own contribution?

Not technically true. You would be on the hook for four months of summer as the child is expected to return for the summer months.

Was the child eligible for student loans/grants? For instance, OSAP in Ontario? Normally they would receive grants in addition to loans including a direct grant to the tuition amount.

A friend who just went through trial on RESPs had this case referenced in the decision:

https://www.canlii.org/en/on/oncj/do...&resultIndex=1

The judge in that case held that both parents would benefit from the funds so they were to be applied to the cost first.

Sorry, that is what I meant. As long as she is not living at home during the school year there is no support. If she returns for summer that's different for sure.
As far as Loans etc ... I have no idea, I asked and all that mother said is that they did not apply for any OSAP and "why would they?" "Why would we put our child in debt when its not necessary" is the response i got.
She did say that she got $1700 in bursaries which she told child to put towards books, but then later sent me a receipt for all the books expecting 50/50.
