Hi
What is the housing position of the mother?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
She is supposedly very rich and lives in a house which she owns. She is an accountant by profession and is not short of money. My husband has been kicked out of his job since February 2015 but he is still paying her Child maintenance through CSA every month. He has overpaid her for last 5 months since he hasn't got a job any more. He is still giving her £667.00. I am not sure if it is fair on her part to charge him like that??
I think it is very nasty and devious to do that

Hi
Has he notified the CSA that his income has reduced?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No! He is scared that when he stops paying her she will come after his property. That was my initial question "what right does she or the illegitimate daughter has on his assets"??
He is not married to this woman

HI
What assets does he have other than the matrimonial home?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He has a commercial property in his name the matrimonial home is mine only. That was a gift from my father and I have 3 children from our marriage to whom I want to pass on to when I die
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
