Our daughter is 17 and is in full time education. She will finish her course when she is 3 months from being 20. My son is not biologically my ex husbands and he is nearly 22 now. Both live at home with myself and my husband. My daughter goes to her dads on a Saturday and comes back Sunday night.
My ex hasn't made any maintenance payments for at least 2 years.
No any money he gave before had to be dragged out of him by the CSA through attachment of earnings order.
He used to cry in front of my daughter saying he didn't have enough to
To live and couldn't cope. She became very upset and down. I had no choice but to withdraw the claim for my daughters sake.
The money he is claiming is for train tickets he paid for on his visa card and money he gave me which I signed a receipt for but I gave him the money back I was just stupid and didn't get him to sign a receipt.
Everything had seemed to settle down around that time and he seemed to be OK.
The train tickets I needed for work and I got cheaper online...he happened to be there when the offer came through. As for the money loaned...It was always for things for the children...he wasn't paying regular money, every now and again big things such as trips etc came up and I would try to get something out of him. I was a single parent struggling.
I only got married in September 2012 after being with my partner a few months before that I was alone.
