Hi, just after some info.
If we pay half of the school fee's $900 a year do I let child support know?
Friend said that I should tell them?
Also last year BM was sorting out child support and said we'll not have her for half of holidays, we did have her for half I should tell them that too yes?

Yup sure I'd tell them anything- but if you're paying the school fees in a private arrangement I don't know what evidence they require or if they disregard it cus it's not a payment made/requested through them ?!

Im nearly in tears
So in April when BM called up she said we have her every tuesday and every second weekend 104 nights.
She told us she said we had her for half the school holidays, but not the Xmas ones, sure, we thought we'd let see what happens and we did end up having her those xmas holidays, (and half of all the other ones) So she lied for starters, and it puts us in the next bracket. Dp changed over from a sole proprietor to a company with work between this time so we are not as "rich" as things make out to be.
SO sent a text saying we need to talk about CS, it was under-reported.
guess we'll see where our always being the nice guys and compromising gets us tomorrow.
NO MORE i say NEVER AGAIN. ANd im going to ask her to get them to collect the money. I feel this isn't doing us any favours by having a private agreement.

If you are paying CS then you do not need to pay the school fee's as your contribution is paid for via CSA.
Also the mother would get the school kid bonus aswell and possibly EMA allowance.
My advice is the keep the care levels the same every year and make sure CSA have the right levels.
Keep a diary of care levels so that if she lies you can show them the diary.
Have you used the estimator to see that you are paying the correct amount ?

Can you request to pay to them or does she have to request them to collect?
I am a receiving parent and I would NEVER have a private agreement.

He said she has to request for them to collect. Im going to ask tomorrow if she will.
And because it was a private agreement with the fee's that's it really. ( she has to agree to accept that school fee as child support iinstead)
Just working out all the days/ holidays etc we will have her this year.
I feel like kicking dp in the shins, he sorted it all out with BM in April just gone and look where it gets us. It feels like we have been stolen from actually, but i guess it's my own dumb fault for not checking it over.
She knew all the holidays we had her that it was free money basically.
Once bitten twice shy i guess.
Thanks for your help everyone.

CSA wont care if you have paid the school fee's or not.
Like others have said if its private school then you required to pay half's if the DP agreed for child to go that school.
If its public CSA don't care who pays school fee's, its supposed to come out of the CS payments, If you pay it on top of CS they wont take it out of CS unless you say its a non agency payment but the BM has to agree with it and if she is anything like the one we have to deal with she won't agree.
