Not much. That is the problem. I am trying to get my old bank statements to show regular withdrawals but as I paid her cash in hand I don't think they will prove that I paid. I am afraid I have been a bit naive. It only went wrong when my son expressed an interest in spending more time with me. I am also anxious becuase the decision came to me in August and when I rang up to query it the man on the phone told me I could not appeal and now my friend has told me that there is only one month to appeal in?
If I can't challenge the arrears is there anyway I can get longer to pay them off as this is crippling my family, the monthly rent on our home is £550 and my wife works three days per week as a cleaner. We are really struggling?
My letter says I have to pay £252 fortnightly and it says number of payments 26 payable from 13 Sept 2013 to 29 Aug 2014 which is made up of regular maintenance amount of £108 per fortnight plus maintenance arrears of £144 per fortnight.
It was different sums each week depending on what she wanted for my son. I have no idea how much it adds up to. I have just noticed that the letter says they have added £5257 in arrears and that the amount to be paid over 12 months may not clear all the arrears.
Do you think I can get longer to pay if I can't prove what I paid and when?
