College tuition ordered to be 50/50. Is ex entitled to my job's tuition waiver perk?
I disagree as my salary and benefits are mine. I earn them. Just as my ex is not entitled to any of my other job benefits, I do not feel he is entitled to this one.
I am about to file contempt. Advice please?

My first question is does your Divorce Decree state 50/50 or as per Connecticut Law? Next, your ex is wrong but he also has a point which the Court will likely take into consideration. Unless your divorce decree states other wise the law can require each party to pay up to 50% of the cost of secondary education (with cost of attending UCON including room, board, books, etc. as the base) based on each person's ability to pay. Also taken into consideration is grants, aid, and the child's own ability to contribute. In short, you need an attorney who is knowledgeable in Family Law.
