my gross is approx 40k
my ex will not entertain the idea of me having my kids overnight and restricts access to them to every other Sunday. 2 of my kids do not want to spend time with me i think because i have remarried
i pay £375 a month towards the mortgage plus approx £100 a month building & contents and her life ins on mortgage
i dont have much if anything left after paying my own bills and rent despite what i earn.
is that calculated before or after my finances are taken into account because if it is before then i would not be able to afford to go to work
i am self employed and paid through an agency so only get minimum wage and "dividends"
at this point she has not asked for a specific amount
my income is based on £40,000 at the agency. when i get paid it is through an umbrella company which pays me minimum wage plus dividends. i have an 18yr old step daughter who is still in full time education and lives with me and my wife.
i understand i dont have to pay the mortgage if she goes to the CMS
would the benefits agency have reduced her benefits by awarding her the mortgage payments??
ok but would the benefits agency have reduced her benefits by awarding her the mortgage payments??
sorry got called away...
are there any benefits that she would have had reduced or taken off her by getting the mortgage payment which goes direct to the lender??
should i ask to see the letter stating reduction/loss of benefits as she would then accuse me of not believing her and that i was trying to hold back from supporting the kids and that i didnt want to pay her anything
fair enough but the question was are there any benefits that she is/could be claimimg that would have been reduced/affected by the claiming of mortgage payments to the lender directly from the dwp
or is she trying to deceive/lying to me about this?? thats why i was asking about the letter
you stated earlier in the thread that if i was to pay maintenance that i wouldnt have to pay the mortgage
could you clarify that please
so if i pay her what the CMS say, then get in touch with mortgage people they will contact her for payment and she cant come back at me saying i've got to pay both
