to ask my XP to pay for after school care on the day he has his DS?
samantha001 · 10/05/2011 20:30
My xp has our ds for two nights a week, on night one he is unable to collect from school when it finishes (a common problem for all parents who work) on night two he can leave work early & collects when school finishes. The school has good afterschool facilities which I use when I am working after school hours. Despite our legal contract confirming our agreement to the overnight stays, because it does not define the pick up time he thinks he can make up different rules & pick up times for each night to suit him & that I should pay for this. If you have had the same experience & can offer any constructive advice I would really appreciate it

If he gets a reduction, then yes, he is expected to fund care provision on 'his' days so he should pay for daycare if he needs it. If, however, you both need it (which seems to be the case) then just pay the day if it means your DC won't be left high and dry.
Some things aren't worth the fight, and this is one of them.
