My daughter is 16 years old. The courts are wanting me to pay for the next 2 years plus 4 years past. A total of 6 years.
I did pay for the first year being 2010 via the CSA. My x got the dates wrong by a year. I did work for a year during the past 3 years and did not pay anything as we could not come to an agreement about the amount. For the next 2 years I am not planning to work.
My divorce was finalised about 5 years ago with a 50/50 split of assets. My x still lives in the FMH as he has refused to sell. I have been away and not had the inclination to force him but last year I took him to court to sell the FMH. It was then he started with this court case. This was the final hearing for his claim for child maintenance. The first being October 2013 the second January 2014 and final June 2014 (sorry I forgot to mention the October 2013 in my initial comments). I only found out about the 3rd June 2014 court date when I returned to the UK on 20th June. I went to the court for the court order and it was not ready. I had to wait until Monday 23rd before I could collect it being 20days after the court date.
I did not contact the court. The court order in January said that the Applicant was to keep me informed via email as I am not in the UK
Not sure if you got this but already sent a reply.
I was to keep informed of the details of the court date for January by the Applicant. This was stated in the court order for January. The applicant was to keep me informed and agree a court date and time allowed for the hearing. He was also to send me his court documents. None of this he did. I was therefore under the impression that there was to be no court hearing. I did send my documents to his solicitors. I received an email saying they were no longer representing him.
Thanks for the reply for my point number 2. The costs need to be paid now and are not out of the capital funds. I sought advice yesterday afternoon as I needed a quick response and was advised to do a letter suspending the costs per the appeal.
Do you have a reply for point number 1?
