My ex has her mind set on enrolling daughter in private kindergarten in the fall. If I am against this but have no choice in the matter without taking her to Court, what are my options to protect myself for the future. I have agreed to pay what I would be paying for after school care if the child was in public school, which comes to about 10-15% of the private school tuition cost. Is there any way she can "fall on hard times" in the future and take me back to Court to make me pay more since I am contributing some? What can I have her sign that will protect me? This is in Maryland. Thank you.
If your ex can establish that you and she agreed to your daughter going to private kindergarten, then it is possible that she could successfully argue that you are liable for future costs. I would recommend that you have an agreement prepared that details the agreement that you agree to pay an amount equal to the cost of aftercare toward the private kindergarten and that your ex agrees to pay the balance and that if your ex should not be able to pay her share that your daughter will go to public school.
