Not to resurrect a dead thread, but I had a couple additional questions...
Technically my ex has until June 15th to reconsider and make her portion of the payment (literally only $305 for the entire summer's daycare program). As previously stated earlier in this thread, she is going with the "I can't spend what I don't have" excuse.
Should i wait until it gets closer to the cutoff date just in case she is bluffing or is the point of the R3 to get her to take this seriously now and if she doesn't, to basically to show the judge that I tried but got no where if it comes down to court intervention?
Based on reviewing the other topic of BIFF R3's, I was going to go with something like this:
Our son needs to be registered for summer daycare before June 15 and your refusal to pay your portion of the registration concerns me since we will both be working through the summer. I am open to discussing any other options with you.
That it or should I ask for her to email/write me a response? Do I mention anything else? For example, my parents can most likely care for our son a couple days a week which would bring the cost down.
And now something off topic, one last thing, for the past five weeks, my ex has requested changing up the parenting schedule and asking to swap days, usually to give herself more weekend nights to herself without our son. They are mostly requests to swap days with her and I haven't really gained any additional time with my son. How often should I let this happen without just saying no more swapping, I'll take the extra night though? Seems she is getting carried away with this.
She also keeps mentioning in all of these emails that she "is just so overwhelmed right now with everything and can't even think straight enough to keep the days straight."
She is PPR/Custodial parent...is it worth filing to make myself the custodial parent? I'm the one who does everything with the parenting schedule, doctor appointments, taking off of work to be with sick son, daycare schedule, reminders of daycare field trips, takes off during the holiday breaks (Easter, Christmas, etc.), among other things...she is no where near acting like a custodial parent. I love taking care of my son and feel as if I already am the custodial parent.
