School fees - Who should pay

Add Topic
When my ex and I parted, the agreement was he would pay the school fees and I would pay for the children's living costs. My ex has gone into administration…so has not paid the outstand fees. The school is now demanding the fees from me. Am I liable?

Was there anything in writing and who was named on the enrolment as being responsible for the fees?
  I know when I signed the enrolment forms for my daughter's school it clearly stated that both parents were responsible for school fees, irrespective of what personal agreement existed between them. It also stated that the school had the right to recover fees from either parent, once again irrespective of what personal agreement existed between them.

Given that the school is chasing you, you were obviously a signatory on the enrolment forms therefore in their eyes responsible for outstanding fees. You will need to take action against your ex to recover the fees (as I did)
