You only need to serve his solicitor with the Form E - but you can certainly write to his solicitor and tell them you will give it to your ex directly if you wish
YOu send the C100 to the court - you do NOT send anything to your ex until you hear back from the court
Put it all in!
They get the Order and enforce it!
Enforcement can be accomplished in different ways - but Attachment of Earnings is one of them
No I am afraid not
Concentrate on getting an Order for spouse maintenance which reflects the fact that he is not paying the child maintenance
It is important to be crystal clear in this point.
1.You are asking for interim spouse maintenance because your current income does not cover basic outgoings.
2. If he paid his child maintenance your income would cover your basic outgoings
3. You ask the court to award you interim spouse maintenance to be reduced pound for pound by any child maintenance he actually pays
That will not work
The Judge distanced herself from child maintenance because she has no power to deal with it.
However there is an assessment in existence and if he paid it in full then your needs would be less. hence the pound for pound reduction
They can do - but if you stay on top of enforcement all should be well
