This is going to be long and I am sorry in advance but need help. My dd's father and I were never married and we dont have anything legal between us we share her 50/50. Well his wife and him decided to put her in a private school. I REFUSE to pay tuituion, she can get the same education at a public school, minus the christianity. It was NOT my choice to put her there so I told him I would NOT pay half of the tuition.
So he claimed her on taxes the last 2 years and I emailed him last week and advised him that I was claiming her this year and he said no problem would you pay for her lunches and her dance classes...I said no problem. I come to work this morning and I have an email from him stating that since I am not paying her tuition that we supposedly agreed to him claiming her on taxed every year, well we did verbally but that was lat year to shut up his wife. Well he states that he will be claiming her and unless I wanted to pay part of her tuition that is what it is going to be...then he goes on to say he has paid 2950.00 in tuition this year. NOT MY PROBLEM. So now I dont know what to do....I refuse to pay tuition for my child to go to school when I did not have a choice as to where she was going(I think it is a status quo thing for his wife). He owns his own business and has 2 other kids. Am I being unreasonable? I dont know how to argue this. I know if I get an attorney involved that I could end up getting fucked due to him paying all tuition, but I dont know!
