Hi - thanks for coming back.
The property is in joint names - me and my ex.
It is worth £200k and has £120k outstanding.
No we were not married.
Since becoming self-employed in March 2012 I have paid minimal CSA.
I agreed to pay my ex £782 per month in January 2013 which covers:-
Mortgage - £320 per month
Charlotte University - £200 per month
Charlotte Mobile – Included in above
Phoebe Mobile - £20 per month
Phoebe School Bus / Petrol - £72 per month
Phoebe Shoes / Clothes - £50 per month
Phoebe Pocket Money - £40 per month
Phoebes Counselling - £80 per month
Total - £782 per month
This payment was 'agreed' in order to resolve my ex's money problems and her inability to look after Phoebe (who is now 16 and left school this month)
hope that helps
Hi - Phoebe has been looking at either starting work or college - not sure what the decision is yet - I'm normally last to know :-/
didnt expect that question - there are flats from £100k upwards in east bristol. i dont think she has any capacity but does have a bf with a small property in wiltshire which is 60miles away. in my opinion she can rent though, the same as me.
Some would say I'm kind some would say I'm a mug. My ex and both children used to complain incessantly about how tight I was because CSA couldn't wring out £100's from me every month so i itemised everything I was paying at the time, wrote the ex a letter, and said "here you go - you look after it". Havent heard any complaints since - not heard anything at all actually!
Hi thanks for info.
Does the Children's Act still apply if my 16yo starts a full-time job?
