"NTA No Way! He needs to provide for his kids. You have (tragically) provided for your kid. This is her money. Why hasn't he been saving for his kids education all along? He can cosign on his kids loans and pay them off. These are his kids and he and his ex-wife need to provide their educational expenses!" 💰💔
