I believe you can submit all the documentation, including the date he left & the date he began payments. Also, it won't look good for him that he didn't pay the law's 17% unless he has a very good documented reason for this (ie unemployment, etc). Present all you have or can get & include in your lawsuit. If he can afford it, I do believe there is good chance to be reimbursed for what he's shorted you, again, unless there was good reason for his choice not to. Good Luck to You!!! The children deserve a good life!!!
