Hi, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, as there appears to only be a voluntary agreement between you and not a formal child maintenance calculation you have no option to enforce and claim back any "arrears" since the reduction. If you believe his liability is higher than £312 per month - which is calculated based on his gross income and how often she stays overnight with him you can apply to the Child Maintenance Service for an enforceable calculation. If you provide me his gross income figure and how many nights a week, on average, she stays with him I can inform you of his legal liability.

My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 35 years.
My colleague has given you sound advice - you cannot claim the monies as Child Maintenance.
However if the agreement was well worded then you MAY be able to make a claim using the Small Claims Court and relying on the signed agreement as a Contract which your ex has breached.
There is no guarantee but this could be successful
