Denham Springs, LA asked in Family Law and Child Support for Louisiana

Q: Is my my ex wife responsible for tutor expenses for homeschool?

I recently went to mediation with my ex wife. From the mediation, she is now responsible for “100% of homeschool expenses” ( how it is written in our mediation agreement) To add to the background information, I have 50% custody of my four kids and I we now share a 7 day custody agreement. I will now be heavily involved in the kids education, which was the plan I know the kids are not where the need to be, from an education stand point. With this being said, is my ex wife responsible to pay for tutor expenses? I am also curious if she is responsible for expenses for items such as Laptops ( like a Chromebook) for the online portions.

A: If you had an attorney representing you, then please ask your attorney. If you did not have an attorney representing you, then I would suggest reading the agreement/order and see if tutoring is specifically mentioned. If it is mot, then unless both parties intended "tutor expense" to be a part of "100%$ of homeschool expenses" it is most likely not. But without reading the agreement/order I do not believe an informed opinion as to your situation can be given.
