He has been paying maintenance which was agreed privatetly through court that he pay £160.00 a month. Until last month there was no issues and he was paying.

Is there a court order in place
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes 5 years ago in the divorce papers stated that he agree to pay £160.00 for both children a month until they both are 18.

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
You can enforce the order if he is in breach of making the payments to you. Some options will help you to get payments that should have been made in the past and will also try to make sure that the debtor pays regularly in the future.These are:• registering the order in a magistrates’ court, and • an attachment of earnings order.Some of the options for getting your money will only help you to recover arrears. The ones described in this leaflet are:• a warrant of execution • a third party debt order • a charging order, and• a judgment summons.

HiMy name is ***** ***** I am a little concerned that you have not said that the agreement was actually turned into a financial orderThis would be a separate piece of paper setting out the financial arrangements relating to the house as well as the maintenanceOnly if there was such an order can it be enforced (but do NOT register it in the Magistrates Court.)Instead use this formhttp://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/d050k-eng.pdfto chase the money.The other option is to apply to the CMS and let them set a new rate (probably higher) and collect the moneyClare
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
