[Solved] Uni fees

Hello all
Can anyone answer this for me please?
I'm divorced and I am paying (private agreement set out in the consent order) maintenance for my child who is finishing a-level this summer.
Her mother and her are living in the UK but I live abroad although I work in the UK.
She's telling me to contribute to uni fees, however I read on the gov website that it's only the parent who she lives with.
Am I legally obliged to contribute?

hi,

legally you don't pay for uni fees.you can if you want to as private agreement. if you were paying child maintenance through the child maintenance service, you would not be paying for childs tuition fees. you would stop paying maintenance when child leaves full-time education e.g. a-levels.
