Hello Welcome to Just Answer I am a Solicitor and will assist you. Please may I ask - when was the court order made? Kind Regards Caroline
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Consent order was agreed in 2010.

Hello Thank you for confirming that for me. I am sorry to tell you that because your court order is now more than a year old and because the order was made after the 03 March 2003 - it is possible for the mother to choose to refer the matter to Child Maintenance Service. Kind Regards ***** ***** kindly remember to rate positively so that we receive credit for helping you today

Even though this was part of divorce settlement agreed by the courts?

Hello Yes - it for the element that relates to child maintenance - after one year either party can give notice to refer this part to the CMS instead. Kind Regards Caroline
