Hi my daughter is 9 (10 on 1st May).
The order said:
The respondent shall pay periodical payments to the Petitioner for the benefit of Lucinda Sophia Gay (d.o.b. 1.5.05) at the rate of £1,200 per annum. Payments shall be made monthly in advance on the 1st day of each month. They shall commence on 1 November 2006. They shall end on the later of the child 1) reaching the age of eighteen; or 2) (if later) ceasing full-time tertiary education to the end of first degree course payments to continue during any period of up to sixteen months from the date on which secondary education is concluded and for so long as the child shall intend to commence tertiary education at the end of that period unless the court makes an order for the payments to continue to a later date.
The quantum of periodical payments referred to at paragraph 3 above shall be reviewed on 15 March 2007 and in default of agreement between the parties the Petitioner shall apply to the CSA for an assessment.
On "the variation date" the amount of periodical payments set out in paragraph 3 or any amount substituted by virtue of agreement or assessement will stand varied automatically. The change in the payments shall be the increase, if any, between the retail prices index for August 2006 which stands at 199.2 and the retail price index for the month three months before the variation date.
Thank you for this information. It is totally frustrating that because I trusted him to make good his debt to me, I am left out of pocket and he can get away without paying. Can I ask if it is possible for me to pursue this debt in a different manner such as through the civil court?
We have now made an application to the CSA but I think he is not declaring his full income in the application but I am in contact with the CSA about this.
