Q: 

Can my ex-wife go to the Welfare Office?

A:  Those that do get screwed over are the ones who do the who thing outside the court system and then can''t prove the support they have been providing all along. Get a legal separation and your child support in a written order. If not in a written order, she does not have to declare it to the welfare office. Make sure to push the divorce along so you don''t get stuck supporting her longer than you have to. A legal separation will go a long way towards putting the responsibility for the welfare repayments on her. If you have a private arrangement with regards to child support make sure firstly that you two have a legal contract stating that, and that for each and every

Q: 

Can NCP ordered to pay half of private school?

A:  Yes- she can ask the court to order you to contribute toward private school; will she prevail? you have a good argument against it ( mainly she can stay in her current private school at no cost); many factors are considered ( incomes, ability to pay, needs of child, etc) It is theoretically possible.

My Ex Wants me to pay an Extra $100 a Month in child Support on top of the Court Ordered Amount, What Should I do?

A:  “My ex and I agreed to my paying $300.00 a month in child support for my 3 children. The courts further stated that I need to keep medical insurance on my children as well.

Then file a restraining order to keep him away. Most times those don''t work, but you need to be on record with an account of his behavior. The thing is, that you supported him for a month and he supported you, what seems for longer than that. He promised to pay you the deposit you payed, but unless it''s on paper, there is no way you can get that money.
