Payment of 290 a month for child support
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
The difficulty she has is that the CSA is not available unless the receiving parent and the child live in the UK. Where she lives abroad and you want to get child maintenance payments from an ex-partner living in the UK you can apply to:enforce an existing maintenance decisionmake changes to an existing maintenance decisionmake a new maintenance decision
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This was an agreement between them and not a decision that CSA have been involved with. Can see enforce this agreement through the courts or CSA

How much does he owe

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
Well if this is an informal agreement she can enforce the sum owed through the small claims court. But she may consider that she needs to seek a more formal maintenance arrangement and to that end she can in fact issue proceedings in the US and once she has an order enforce that in the UK
