"NTA You could offer to split the amount your Ex can prove he contributed in half. In other words, give half of that $5-6k he contributed for his son and keep the other half for his contribution to your daughter's college. But... it would also be smart to only offer this a payment directly towards his son's college when his son actually attends college. Because it sounds like they've already spent any previous college money they had saved and would spend this money too if you gave it to them now. 'Ex contributed $6k to Daughter's fund. I'm okay with sharing that between the two kids. Let me know when Sin is starting college and I'll pay $3k to his school.'" Reply: "Why would she do any of that? She owes them nothing" 👍"
