I'm a recently divorced man who has in his decree that the only way that one of us could pull our son from private school is from financial hardship. My ex wife has been trying to convince me all year that it would be better for my son to go to a school that is practically in her backyard, the day before my son's last day of school she tells me she is suffering from financial hardship due to the school. I feel she is using this excuse to get out of the obligation of private school. Can I make her prove that it's causing financial hardship? Or can she just say it and that's law? Do I need to retain an attorney for this matter? Thank you-alpatch...by the way I'm in Arizona

if the court papers state that the child will attend public school and that she is responsible for half of the fees. then there is the possibility that she could be in contempt of court if she pulls the child.

if the only way out of it was through financial hardship then she would have to prove to the judge that it was indeed just that.

if she can't prove it. you win. the child goes back to private school. if she does, then she has the right to pull the child.

just a thought. if you are goig to put this through the system. you might want to do it before the school years start. that way, you don't have to pull the child back and forth between schools.

private schools are nice, but they do get expensive. the school that she is wanting to take the child to, what type of record does it have? it is a good clean school? no worries about gangs, violence, etc?
