Opposing counsel threw together a limited appearance response to our petetion 3 days late to avoid a default order.
He stated they are appealing the judges ruling as soon as the order is entered by the court, and asked for a stay of proceedings.
Opposing counsel said that the respondent is open to settling in lieu of paying monthly child support and putting her on his insurance.
I put together a settlement offer, and the total is just over $175,000.
The breakdown includes:
1/2 of her portion of our primary and supplemental insurance premiums for 10 years. Not including co pay and prescription costs.
1/2 of extracurricular activities (minus her study abroad program in Spain) until she graduates high school.
1/2 of tuition and fees, books and room and board for a 4 year college degree (using usu fees as a guideline)
$1,000/month/10 year lump sum for child support (which will knock off over 14k of what he will be ordered to pay for cs and back cs)
College expenses are included because he has gotten a free ride for 10 years, so far.
