I am sorry to hear of your battle. Stopping the Ritalin may cause your son to experience more difficulties with concentrating on school work, unless it has been replaced by something different. Your son's father will soon hear from the school if his school work begins to suffer; this may be in part due to the change of household, however, this should only cause short term disturbances. It is important for both parents, even if not living together, to have the best interest of the child at heart.
I wish you and your family all the best.
