I was paying under under agreed divorce settlement then my ex-wife decided to go to the CSA 8 months before I was made redundant. So I was paying £400 per month then on the assessment of the CSA I was then paying £1200 per month approx.
So to clarify, as I had notified the CSA that I was nolonger working ( they even contacted my previous employer to check) then I am not liable for the pay the child maintenance I was unable to pay due to being umemployed when i eventually, find new employed.
As my ex-wife is claiming that I have to pay her the child maintainance, that I have not paid during my unemployment, this is incorrect?
no, as I am still unemployed but my ex is demanding that I should start paying her ( which I cannot not and will not) despite the fact I am not working therefore, with no spare funds as well as building further debts. And that I owe her £8k based on child maintenance I have not paid during the period I have not been working.
She has calculated this sum based on the agreement we made as part of our divorce agreement before she decide to go to the CSA, even thought this made me go into debt and could not afford to pay my basic month bills or my mortgage.
yes, they said i didnt have to pay as I had no income coming in.does that make a difference to whether i have to pay any monies whilst I was not working?
But if we agreed between us to for me to pay child maintenance directly to her when I eventually find new employment. Can we do this without getting the CSA involved again or will the CSA always now be involved since I am now in their system regardless of what we may agree?
So I have to get my Ex- to contact the CSA to tell them she nolonger wants them involved as we have a made an agreement between us.
