Child support and child not at school
Thought I might raise this for discussion. I have three children, one with my current partner and two with my ex. All three were living with me with my ex regularly interfering and making things difficult. My daughter with my ex has decided that mother dear is the place to live and of course school attendance is down considerable and mum now struts around making proclaimations about being the one in charge and so on. Mother is a mental case - sadly undiagnosed - and I do believe that it is a matter of time until my daughter returns to my care.
I must stress there are orders signed by consent that both children with my ex live with me. Mother IS in contravention and I do have mediation booked next month (although I think this will be useless.)
My concern is, in the event that the daughter does reside with the ex and does not attend school what are the rules around child support?
I work for a major govt agency and deal with the 'earn or learn' rules. In my opinion, the govt clearly wants children to get education and if the child is not in education how is it that I am liable for child support? With my income the child support paid would be enough to promote non attendance. Damn shame that child support is not income managed so that it would not be wasted on frivilous rubbish.
I will admit that at the moment I am not paying any C$ nor receiving any.
